“For the Sake of You” by Bethany Tugwell


It's hard to let go
But when it becomes poison on your tongue
You've got to say goodbye
For the sake of you

It's hard to stand
Even when the grains have settled in
But you've got to know the truth
For the sake of you

You can't fix the broken
When pieces are lost
Scattered among the weak and the strong

It's hard to soak it in
When your pores are shriveled up
And you can't open up
You just pull yourself in

Days like this makes it hard to believe
And impossible to see the days easily
Tomorrow could be the last
But you'll say goodbye peacefully

It's hard to sit up straight
When you're holding me down
This isn't science honey
You captured me and took me south

It's hard to let go
But when it becomes poison on your tongue
You've just got to say goodbye
For the sake of you
For the sake of you
