lyrics

No matter when it happens, it's always a surprise
To look to you for love and see old shadows in your eyes.
I never tried to hurt you, but that matters not a damn
If you cannot see the who of me behind the thing I am.

The pattern of the injury is written in the scar
All that we were raised to be is part of who we are.

In your willing arms I thought my heart-safe harbor lay
Till a stranger stepped between us from a hundred miles away
When you most need a shoulder, when I most need you near
I can't even comfort you when I am what you fear.

I thought what lay between us no one else could reach to mar
All that we were raised to be is part of who we are.

I took the space within your heart that you'd so dearly wrought
And never knew your courage by the weight of what you fought.
In blood and pain and fire as we struggle to be true
If I tried to fight your demons might I end by fighting you?

We reach toward each other, but some gaps are just too far
All that we were raised to be is part of who we are.

The pattern of the injury is written in the scar
All that we were raised to be is part of who we are.
