KEATON'S SONG

Soko

This song is about Keaton Henson. For further discussion see
Quiet Rebel - Keaton Henson and Soko

You give up on me way too fast
Our parents would have never done that
Give me time and I'll prove you that
I am better than what I showed you last

You're sick and tired of seeing me cry
You don't know how to calm me down
Please read me poems and make me laugh
Remind me how lucky I am

You wonder why I hit myself
I'm trying to kill the worst of me
To be the best for you
To be the best for you

You haven't spoken a word for days
You write it all down
You say it keeps you alive
You grew a beard to hide behind
So I cannot read your mind
I cannot read your mind
I cannot read your mind

You build walls no one could climb
And bury yourself in your Victorian mind
You said 'forget it, it's better like that'
And since I've lost all sense and meaning of life

Now where does our story end?
I'm not ready to move on, I know
That you're the best for me
And I'll be the best for you

You gave up on me way too fast
But don't be a stranger at last
Give me time and I'll prove you that
I'm trying to kill the worst of me
To be the best for you
To be the best for you
