I Wish I Could Grow Fonder

Sometimes, I forget how to miss them.

Nobody's strong because they want to be

We only hold on because we have to

And the ones who don't won't admit they're weak just by not hurting

Here I stand, infirm but stiff

Unbending just in case I break

But I know if I want to live I have to make a mistake

Nobody's strong because they want to be

We only move on because we have to

And it only scares me when I don't have to pretend that I'm not hurting

And I want to cry

And I want to shake

And I need to bend

And I might just break

Yet here I stand, infirm but stiff

I don't even have to fake this smile

Necessity means unwarranted respite for just a little while

Absence only makes the heart forget

Abstinence makes it wish it hadn't
