lyrics

The first time I came home from school
I walked right through the door
Wrapped my arms around my mother
Dropped my bags on the floor
That night I heard the train
All the way in Richmond
And God, just being home
Felt like breathing again

I'm splitting in half
A mitosis of sorts
Once I shed this skin
I won't hurt anymore
I never let myself in
On the truth before
There's two of me at last
One to move on
One to stay in the past

Well, I moved back down to Boston
And met the people that I love
They taught me how to drop my guard down
And showed me that I am enough
I see them as the sisters
That I never had
It's the sweetest feeling ever
Knowing someone has your back

I'm splitting in half
A mitosis of sorts
Once I shed this skin
I won't hurt anymore
I never let myself in
On the truth before
There's two of me at last
One to move on
One to stay in the past

Now I love brick and iron and copper
These building speak to me my truth
They tell me that I'm smart
And there's a spot
For me in every room
And here I am still growing
But like the person I can see
And that's all I ever wanted
For me

I'm splitting in half
A mitosis of sorts
Once I shed this skin
I won't hurt anymore
I never let myself in
On the truth before
There's two of me at last
One to move on
One to stay in the past
