Tiredness

Portuguese Version

I was tired of constraining my heart
so I bled it open
allowing my feelings to inundate the rational desert that has enclosed me
all this time

I was tired of sparing my love
for someone I wasn't sure I would meet
so I let it flow
spreading along the dry channels I've caved around me

I was tired of waiting
for that perfect time that might never come
for the chance to find the love everybody looks for
so I changed myself

The tiredness has defeated me
