A Year Ago

from by Saint Mahogany



So I would wonder about those phantom pains
And our phantom faults
But all we are is collections
Of wounds into which we add more salt

A year ago today I'd have told you
My thoughts were my friends
Now it's the other way around

On the night that I turned ten
My father spoke to me
He said "Son, you're halfway through your life."
It was a joke, but to what degree?

A year ago today I'd have told you
I would soon be leaving
I didn't know where I belonged
Stuck between two meanings
My brain lay dormant for too long
There was no use believing
Thanks for proving me wrong
