RUINS
Melissa Etheridge


Don't try to call

There are some bridges that burn

Beyond recognition beyond repair

Don't say you've changed

There are some forces that turn

Beyond recollection beyond my stare

When I feel the cold in the dark

I know you're there


Long ago I was a woman in pain

A woman in need

I ran to you

Long ago I did not understand

You were making me bleed

I ran to you

When I feel the cold in the dark

I know what you do


I will crawl through my past

Over stones blood and glass

In the ruins

Reaching under the fence

As I try to make sense

In the ruins


I know your heart has held its own fear

It's perfectly clear

What they did to you

In my heart it's the screaming I hear

I won't let them come near

Since my love knew you

When I feel the cold in the dark

I remember you


I will crawl through my past

Over stones blood and glass

In the ruins

Reaching under the fence

As I try to make sense

In the ruins


Night after night

I am carving it out

I will carry it down to the waterside

Night after night

I am hearing the sound

Of wings that come beating

I will not hide

When I feel the cold in the dark

I will know why


I will crawl through my past

Over stones blood and glass

In the ruins

Reaching under the fence

As I try to make sense

In the ruins


But if I am to heal

I must first learn to feel

In the ruins

I will crawl
