These Petals
This blackened rose
This soil all my own
Shrouding your hollowed ground
Like seeds who'll never sow
Like forgery and larceny
And my ill-gained revelry
I recite these scripted lines
While embers of a different time
Go drifting by

When every word you ever said came true
All I missed
In all of this was you

Can you see
A shadow on me, calling me to leave
Find in me
(you're the only home, you're the only home I know)
A trace of you in all this tragedy

These pieces
These shattered shards
Dancing in the moonlight
Glimmering and glistening
Preparing me for the night
I never learned to walk the surface on my own
So lately this ocean floor's been feeling more like
Home

When every word you ever said came true
All I missed in all of this was you

Can you see
A shadow on me, calling me to you
Find in me
(you're the only home, you're the only home I know)
A trace of you in all this tragedy

So take me in these fleeting moments of solitude in you
Remove this sordid fascination with shadow and remove
This shattered self for preservation
This commitment to undo
All that you forgave and give
And all you promised too
And all you promised too

Can you see
A shadow on me, calling me to you
Find in me
A trace of you in all this tragedy

Can you see
The shadow lifting; drifting home again
