Blood Ties

 

Verse One

I grew up to believe blood ties can’t be severed

So how did we break the bonds that kept us tethered?

 

Bridge

You can waste time wishing I were like my sister

I can waste mine wishing you were like my mum

We can hope and pray for miracles

We’re still who we’ve become

 

Chorus

Scarred by the ones I was taught to love

When I was just a child

There’s no haven here, no sanctuary

I’m safer in the wild

 

Verse Two

My nan always told me blood ties can’t be severed

But she died in a family that no longer stands together

 

Bridge

You can waste time wishing I were like my sister

I can waste mine wishing you were like my mum

We can hope and pray for miracles

We’re still who we’ve become

 

Chorus

Scarred by the ones I was taught to love

When I was just a child

There’s no haven here, no sanctuary

I’m safer in the wild

 

Climax

I don’t understand how my blood runs through your veins

And also stains your hands

I don’t have the strength to fight for you

I’m too young to die trying to

I’ve been down this road before

I don’t go here anymore

 

Chorus

Scarred by the ones I was taught to love

When I was just a child

There’s no haven here, no sanctuary

I’m safer in the wild

 

Ending

I grew up to believe blood ties can’t be severed

So how did we break the bonds that kept us tethered?
