who will fall far behind

And I told you to be patient

And I told you to be fine

And I told you to be balanced

And I told you to be kind

 

And now all your love is wasted

And who the hell was I?

I'm breaking at the bridges

And at the end of all your lines

 

Who will love you?

Who will fight?

Who will fall far behind?

I've had "Skinny Love" by Bon Iver stuck in my head a lot lately. A lot, a lot, a lot. But I don't mind. It's such a gorgeous song. Sigh.
