Thicker Than Blood

I’m understanding the cliché to feel nostalgic on a train
‘Cause I know nothing’s changed but nothing feels the same
The icicles above my bed are dripping water on my head
And keep me dreaming of the home I had instead

I’ve been so resilient
I just wish you would try
To make this house a place that I can make my home
But if you won’t light a fire, then I’ll sleep in the snow

Every picture is collapsed, all these boxes stay unpacked
Because the memories just hurt too fucking bad
Nothing good can ever last, nothing here could ever mask
The undying pain of dealing with the fact
That the past is in the past is in the past and that’s that
And there’s no sense in standing still because I’m busy looking back

I’ve been so resilient
I just wish you would try
To make this house a place that I can make my home
But if you won’t light a fire, then I’ll sleep in the snow

Blood is thicker than water
But family’s thicker than blood
I have the eyes of my father
And the heart of a stranger’s son

I’m understanding the cliché to feel nostalgic on a train
‘Cause I just know the holidays won’t be the same
But distance can’t delineate, separate roofs can’t separate
The bind that time has forged I know will stay
