Rotten Roots

from T​.​C. Benjamin by Tal Cohen-Shalev



Say it to me one more time
Tell it to me softly
All those hollow words that I once knew
You tell yourself you're just the same
You'll never change
In a way it's true

You tell yourself it's someone else's fight now
But if I'm free now, why does it still hurt?
The bittersweetness of our days was fleeting
I grew up
And now it's worse

The bridges that we built now lay in ruins
Every plan we made is one more scar
I'm back to where I started
But look what I've become

You kicked me while I was down and hopeless
You cursed the very ground we used to walk
I thought that time would undermine the heaviness I knew
But lies outrun the ticking of the clock

It's hard to heal
It's hard to grow
With rotten roots
And rotten love don't have no seeds to sow
