The Hill and Wood - The Choices I've Made

Hey do you think we could carry each other
It doesn't seem like it's too heavy a load
But I'm scared of the weight not making us stronger
I'm scared it's a weight we won't want when we're old

I know when the water is deep that one has to dive
I know your eyes are enough for me to forget I'm alive

But I've come to a pass and it's raining down knives
And I'm looking for one that will serve me what's true
So I take one in hand and hope I stay alive
And hope it's not one that will cut me in two

My arms are warm with the blood of the choices I've made
The more I bleed the less that I am afraid

It's not fair to say that I'm thinking out loud
My heart has arrested my mind and my pride
And it's not fair to you if I stay up on a cloud
It's time I come down to get out what's inside

I'll tell you once. I'll tell you once again
It won't be enough for us to settle as friends

I come here today with a load on my back
It's not one I'll ask you to shoulder yourself
It's one that I need to throw down on the tracks
That lead to the caverns of a fiery hell

It's truer to say that I've never made a choice
Each decision I make has to be done in a soft tone of voice

So hey, one day I hope you will know
If I felt free to do so I would take your hand
And that the winds of time which steadily blow
Will uncover the secrets that hide in the sand

I think it's now time for me to go
Before I draw this knife into you
I won't do it fast, but I can't do it slow
I hope it's the hardest thing I'll ever do
