It’s a slippery slope
To rock bottom
It’s a long way to fall
It’s a hard way to fall

My stomach is sinking
My mind can’t stop thinking
Drinking in what I need
Desperate to feel again
But now I only feel alone

So I start to fall
She trips, slips and loses her grip
Bump against rocks
Arms and legs conflicting with the cliffs
Blind to beautiful
She can’t see her reflection
Deaf to song
She doesn’t hear me calling her!

It’s a slippery slope
To rock bottom
I’ve reached the hard ground
My face bruised from the fall
But once you’re at the bottom
You can’t fall anymore
I have to look up
And start climbing

Forgetting what happened
Before impact
Picking up the pieces
Of my broken heart
Along the way
Picking up my pieces
So I can walk uphill again

The day breaks on her broken soul
She rolls over, gets up slow
Stumbles at first ’til she finds her feet
Crumbles at first ’til her arms and legs meet
Her eyes come to focus and they see her heart
So many precious pieces all broken apart
Tears fall down her face as she gathers them up
Shiny tears, sharp pieces, life interrupted
She presses fragments back inside her chest
And holds her heart as she walks up the precipice
Determination, clenched fists and gritted teeth
She conquers rocks, ascends and puts hurt beneath
What once was dull now starts to shimmer, glimmer, shine
The sun follows her up the cliff as she climbs over time
Over time, no longer blind, getting strong, it won’t be long.

It won’t be long.
