Thorn for a rose

 

It was all about you, never about me

A thorn for a rose, leaf for a tree

Ten years of life, spent setting you free

It was all about you, never about me

When I wept you my truth you framed me a liar

Turned to a martyr then burned in a fire

Asking for conflict, to aid the rejection

Where all I was claiming, pure self protection

 

All about you, never about me

Thorn for a rose, leaf for a tree

Ten years of life, spent setting you free

All about you, never about me

 

From a beautiful journey

Where truth turned to stone

And the shadow of apathy

Broke up our home

For the truth is it hurt me

More than you could imagine

By setting us free

To peruse this abandon

 

All about you, never about me

A thorn for a rose, leaf for a tree

Ten years of life, spent setting you free

All about you, never about me
