Threshold Lyrics

Inside this life,
Under it’s spell,
I close my eyes,
And live to tell.

The hands we’re dealt,
Will never disappear.
Death she grows near.

CHORUS
People change,
And instantly.
I’m not the same girl,
I used to be.
I can’t erase all the memories,
But I can explain,
If you’re listening.
People change,
Not just me.

Locked up in silence,
A living hell.
My heart still beats,
So I bid farewell.
The loving hand that saved me,
Held too tight.
His darkness weighs
On me at night.

CHORUS
People change,
And instantly.
I’m not the same girl,
I used to be.
I can’t erase all the memories,
But I can explain,
If you’re listening.
People change,
Not just me.

I never asked,
Or wanted to.
You stepped across my threshold,
How could you?

These lyrics come from the band Little Blue Pill portrayed on the hit TV show Castle.  You can catch this show in it’s eighth season on ABC Monday nights at 10PM EST.  I believe this song is featured in Season 2 of the show but I don’t recall what episode.

If you couldn’t already tell I adore this show ❤ it’s definitely one of my favorites so I don’t mind shamelessly promoting it of my own free will, especially when it represents so perfectly words I want to say but can’t find the words on my own. r

Overcoming PTSD Quote

I’m not crazy, I was abused.

I’m not shy, I’m protecting myself.

I’m not bitter, I’m speaking the truth.

I’m not hanging onto the past, I’ve been damaged.

I’m not delusional, I lived a nightmare.

I’m not weak, I was trusting.

I’m not giving up, I’m healing.

I’m not incapable of love, I’m giving.

I’m not alone.  I see you all here.  I’m fighting this.
