It's not a song of anything
But maybe it can help.
It's not about hope, or pressing on
You wouldn't want to hear that anyway

It's not a mile I'd walk in your shoes
A poet's hope can't sustain you
And the miles I'd go, they can't tell you so
When you have to walk them anyway

Because you're fighting the fight that's fighting you
Why would you want to press on with that?
You're fighting the fight that's finished you
When this is all you ever wanted to be

So don't be who you are
Look in the eyes of the healing
Don't be who you dreamed you'd be
Just look in their eyes and start healing

I know this is hard for you to hear
That healing isn't about you
But you'll only miss what's next to you
When the mirror is all you see

So let the angels wrap you
In their staying, and passing
And let them take your eyes away
From the one who lets you down

Because you're fighting the fight that's fighting you
Why would you want to press on with that?
You're fighting the fight that's finished you
When this is all you ever wanted to be

So don't be who you are
Look in the eyes of the healing
Don't be who you dreamed you'd be
Just look in their eyes and start healing

If you think there's no good
In the life that's all around you
If you think there's no peace
In the moment the sun comes up

Change your eyes, child
Keep looking outside of you
She's still there for you
Waiting to hold your heart
