Rachael Sage — “Sacrifice” Lyrics


When I added the Lyrics tab to the blog, I mentioned that there were a couple of songs that I’d transcribed and contributed to lyrics sites. This is one of those. I wanted to share the words as inspiration for a friend, and when I couldn’t find them, I typed them up myself, and then posted them so other people could benefit. I’m posting it today because it ties in with a conversation I had with a friend yesterday. In doing so, I corrected some mistakes in the lyrics.

Rachael Sage — Sacrifice

there was a time when I can honestly say
you were the only one who’d paved my way
you were the one who’d helped me overcome
all of the demons inside my skin

but it’s been a long time since you’ve held this hand
and since then I’ve grown from a boy to a man
I know that if you fall I will stand
you can never shake this confidence

know that these are my own two arms
know that these are my own two eyes
know that these are my own true words
even if your approval is my sacrifice

I know that I have not fulfilled your plans
but I am starting to resent this guilt
hanging over me like a weeping willow tree
there’s no fire can deface self-acceptance

know that these are my own two arms
know that these are my own two eyes
know that these are my own true words
even if your approval is my sacrifice

I was broken and I wanted too much
expected you to be so brave, but people don’t change
I was frozen and I wanted your touch
expected you to be so brave, but people don’t change, don’t change

there was a time when I can honestly say
you were the only one who’d paved my way
you were the one who’d helped me overcome
all of the demons inside my skin

but it’s been a long time since you’ve held this hand
and since then I’ve grown from a boy to a grown man
I know that if you fall I will still stand
you can never shake this confidence

know that these are my, know that these are my, know that these are my own two arms
know that these are my, know that these are
even if your approval is my sacrifice
even if your approval is my sacrifice

I was broken and I wanted too much
expected you to be so brave, but people don’t, but people don’t change
I was frozen and I wanted your touch
expected you to be so brave, but people don’t, but people don’t change, people don’t change
