The Victim Won't Be Me

Music and Lyrics by Beth Rudetsky

Beth Rudetsky
Iíve listened to the arc of reason,
In the space between longing and need,
Caught up in indecision,
Always fighting to be freed.

Youíve made your place in my heart,
Still I try to push you away,
Itís the not knowing that I canít shoulder,
A cold chill that starts the day.

I really have to go now,
Let my mind be all I see.
IĎll release my fear of darkness,
A way out so I can breathe.

Iím underground,
Without a sound,
But the victim wonít be me

If it isnít fate,
Then itís not too late,
The victim wonít be me.

If I let you go without me,
Do I make it even, and leave myself too?
Loveís a captured longing,
Love was all I knew.

But I really have to go now,
Let my mind be all I see,
Release the fear of darkness,
A way out so I can breathe.

Iím underground,
Without a sound,
But the victim wonít be me.

If it isnít fate,
Then itís not too late,
The victim wonít be me.

If itís love that keeps the heart in limbo,
Then itís time to set it free,
I donít want to be its prisoner,
Make it everything I need.

Iím underground,
Without a sound,
But the victim wonít be me.

If it isnít fate,
Then itís not too late.
The victim wonít be me.
