A "slit your wrist" sad song about feeling exhausted during the agony of becoming part of a broken family.


I’m a single parent now
One out of two of us
And I can’t play the part
To her like I’m wholly satisfied
And I will not burden you
With the pain I am feeling

I cannot play for you
I won’t let them pay for me
And the truth is of this middle
Makes me less for all of you
Lady you change so fast now
From peace to deadly expectation

I’m a single parent now
And all that entails to them
And you are fading into someone
Who catches my giving side
Timing your tender approach
Cycling in my predictable kindness
You are free to come and go too

You can rip my heart out
And mop up the energy I am
I lay it here for you and to you
Oh that you’d be spared your clever timing
But the wind and the waves they rumble
They brush my soul and remind me
I only wanted to give anyway
