"He who forgets, will be destined to remember..."

Charlotte Martin - On Your Shore

(live)

I dig my heels into the dirt ‘cause this one’s gonna hurt..
Won’t let the waves wash me away.. is what I always pray.
In my heart I know you couldn’t see in the dark or find your way through me..
Now I’m alone; my hands are numb; how do I carry on?

And at the turn of the tide, I feel this part of me die..
and I washed on your shore barely alive.

Now I’m held hostage in my head with every word you said.
Got all those lessons in my past ..I spit them out so fast,
I
see myself —
with you I act so small;
see myself —
with you I always crawl.
So someone leave a raft for me — the water’s getting deep.

And at the turn of the tide, I feel this part of me die..
And I washed on your shore barely alive…

Here I am (with my insecurity)
Here I am (with my damaged dignity)
Here I am (you’re pulling me in too deep)
Here I am..
Here I am (I’m in the mercy seat)
Here I am (running without my feet)
And here I am (oh what’s come over me)
Here I am…

When I was melting in your hand, you didn’t understand.
You sift through me like grains of sand; you still don’t understand.

Overboard, I’m thrown out to see what you are and what I mean to me..
But I will always have my dream where you can swim to me..

At the turn of the tide, I feel this part of me die..
And I’ve been on your shore before and it was no waste of time..
Over my head and in my mind.. and I washed on your shore barely alive.

And I washed on your shore, and barely alive.
