the beautiful mistake

sometimes I feel there’s nowhere to go
if you look, I’m sure that’s where I’ll be
she says somewhere between here and there
is that place that’s waiting for me

sometimes I feel like I’m about to fall
in that depth, I’ll find my way
she says it’s like losing tomorrow
when you hold on to yesterday

but I’m afraid of how this will go
an empty heart with still time to grow
not giving up, but just giving in
to the beautiful mistake of where I’ve been

sometimes I feel half alive
motions in place, with an empty core
she says it’s like waiting to breathe
feeding the hunger, but wanting more

sometimes I can feel her here
still connected through an open line
she says it’s how it will always be
what was once, will always be mine

not giving up, but just giving in
to the beautiful mistake of where I’ve been
