Every Little Grain (Salt in the Wounds)
I’ve collected all these tiny grains of salt over the years.
One grain for each lie you told.
You didn’t know it but they’re embedded here in my wounds.
This grain was from the time you told me you loved me.
This one from when you said she’s just a friend.
The time you told me it won’t happen again, there’s one in here for that lie too.
You thought I didn’t know about all this but I always find out the truth.
The salt always stung the worse when you denied your lies.
You didn’t even have the guts to look me in my eyes.
