I Savor The Pain You Cause Me - Sand

It starts early and it never stops
If anything, it gets more intense over time
There's no avoiding this curse
There's no escaping this blessing

I've resigned to feed the flame until my fuel is spent
For you, child
I pretend to be more than I am
I believe every lie I can

I wouldn't know you if we met today
But I would fall again
And excuse myself
And lose my place
And wander
And crash like a wave
Then dissolve into the sand
