A Thousand Times

To fall for you a thousand times

Felt like free falling onto a thousand knives

All I inhaled were a thousand lies

And I’m only left with a thousand goodbyes

A thousand promises to mend your soul

A thousand apologies to hold your throne

A thousand eggshells to drag my feet over

To prevent you from traveling a thousand miles

A thousand men could import devotion

A thousand men could smudge out my bruises

A thousand men could tell me they love me

But out of a thousand men, you’re not one of them
