lyrics

I suppose I've learned quite a lesson
Being alone and isolated
By myself I guess I have taken
With stride and impatience
What I've known all too well
I digress I’ve walked around aimlessly
Sometimes for hours to comprehend this
By the way, things aren’t so fine with me
Not so contrived with
Spite of myself

Something to mark your love on my heart
Something to chronicle you
Something to breathe life back into me
Something to give me a voice

So...

Chorus:
I got an RFT tattoo on me
To remind me of someone who meant so much to me
An RFT tattoo you see
To alert me of the love that surrounded my being

I suppress the feelings inside of me
Until they bubble and surface on top
You could see how this can be harder
From so many miles and time zones away
And I debate on running from this scene
Saying damn all to this scene
And running back home
Still, I guess, you taught me to cherish
The opportunistic things that I have

Something to embrace nostalgia
Something memorialized
Something to bite the bullet on
Something to bring me peace

So…

Chorus

No hesitation in this mark on my wrist
All I do is glance down
A subtle gesture to tap into me
And let the feeling in

Chorus
