Bareilles, Sara - Hercules Lyrics




I miss the days my mind would just rest quiet
My imagination hadn't turned on me yet
I used to let my words wax poetic
But it melted a puddle at my feet now
It is a calcifying crime, it's tragic
I've turned to petrified past life baggage
I want to disappear and just start over
So here we are

And I'll breathe again...

Cause I have sent for a warrior
From on my knees, make me a Hercules
I was meant to be a warrior please
Make me a Hercules

I've lost a grip on where I started from
I wish I'd thought ahead and left a few crumbs
I'm on the hunt for who I've not yet become
But I'd settle for a little equilibrium
There is a war inside my heart gone silent
Both sides dissatisfied and somewhat violent
The issue I have now begun to see
I am the only lonely casualty

This is not the end though...

Cause I have sent for a warrior
From on my knees, make me a Hercules
I was meant to be a warrior please
Make me a Hercules
Cause I have sent for a warrior
From on my knees, make me a Hercules
I was meant to be a warrior please
Make me a Hercules

This is my darkest hour
A long road has lead me out here
But I only need turn around to face the light
And decide flight or fight

Cause I have sent for a warrior
From on my knees, make me a Hercules
I was meant to be...
Cause I have sent for a warrior
From on my knees, make me a Hercules
I was meant to be a warrior please
Make me a Hercules

    so far in life i haven't valued being strong, dk if i'll change. maybe it is nice to feel strong idk

  3. Ziah J

    i miss the days my mind would just rest quiet


    fuck i relate to this so much. my mind never fucking shuts up and while sometimes i love the messy land of stardust and bright lights and forests in my mind, sometimes i find myself lost in loud, dark forests that never rest, where there is always noise and when i get lost, i don't get found. maybe later i find my way back to the places i have mapped within my brain, but i hate the months without a drop of sunlight. i hate taking my meds every morning because my mind is broken. i hate the fact that every word spoken to me worms its way into my heart, tearing down the garden i build for myself or maybe planting another seed that will grow into a tree that will become stronger than the fire of insults and trauma and death.
