about

About forgiveness, not letting fear rule your life, listening to the people that love you, and stepping up to be the person you know you can be; but won't let yourself.

lyrics

The flowers felt like frozen fireworks
Fleeing the ground as the spring rolled on to us
Saying this will be the year we’ve been waiting for
If we can only learn how to become ourselves

Spent all winter in this solitary confinement
You built to protect you, now your rotting inside of it
A sad scared animal trying to escape it’s self
It will feel like a prison break when we finally forgive ourselves

Cause trying to turn your back
On the people, who made you who you are... is like
Trying to turn your back on your own life

Open the blinds, go outside, breath in the air,
Spring his here, let the winter melt
You can be anyone you want to, but first you must forgive yourself
Call your friends, let them in,
Try to laugh, don’t be afraid to ask for help
You can be anyone you want to, but first you must forgive yourself

Outside your window, the world’s plotting against you
Inside your blood, swims a fish that sedates you
Set Fire to the part of you leaving you paranoid and pacified
Kick down your door and go the fuck outside

And were all caught between, past and future dreams
Trying to be who we are, while knowing who we want to be
Getting dirt on your hands is just part of growing things
So I think today I will go plant some sunflower seeds

Cause trying to turn your back
On the people, who made you who you are... is like
Trying to turn your back on your own life

Open the blinds, go outside, breath in the air,
Spring his here, let the winter melt
You can be anyone you want to, but first you must forgive yourself
Call your friends, let them in,
Try to laugh, don’t be afraid to ask for help
You can be anyone you want to, but first you must forgive yourself
