this cuts much too deep to keep my mouth shut
we need to own up to what's been done
there may never be a way to heal this but we need to feel this
or we won't move on

there were many times we let our fear and anger overtake our love
the broken trust and hurtful words
often felt, if not seen or heard
that damage done deep underground

but it could not kill the light inside us
it's still bright and clear through time and tears
and we have to keep alive this innocence inside
it means more than anything

all i know is i love you too damn much
to just sit and watch you lose your light

so, we may need to separate
to keep ourselves from going cold
and we have to decide coz there's an innocence inside
that means more than vows and rings
