But a Child

Angels?
Those are for the Worthy
Those are for the Saints
Those are for the Innocent

Not here
Not me
Not anymore

A child? Maybe
A lamb? Possible
A diamond? Perfect

The halo isn't straight anymore
But it's okay
I don't mind
I don't need it
Do i?

Maybe not
Who does?
I'm not perfect
The light doesn't shine here anymore
But i'll be alright
I can't promise
Because promises aren't suppose to be broken
And i know i'll break it

Call me guilty
Maybe i am
No one really knows
The price was never paid

The regrets?
I have none
Do you?
Or are you just saying that?

I can't pretend
I'm no longer a child
No longer his little Angel
Because i'm not perfect
But at least
He knows now

I can't change
I won't change
No matter how hard i try
My wings?
They are broken
Just like my heart

He's not perfect
So i can't blame him
He didn't know
Who did?
Who does?

I cant keep secrets
So don't tell me any
Gifts?
Please don't
I can't accept them
Don't you know?

I'm not perfect...
