Lyrics

My skin has a long memory
The marks you made, they stayed for years
I still felt all the places you touched me
But all the love was replaced by fear

Two thousand miles from our epicenter
Not far enough to escape the pain
And all the ways you tried to shape me
Were etched like scars into my brain

I know I need to look forward now
And learn the lessons of my past
I know I need to look forward now
Rebuild my story so love can last

These city streets, they’re full of transplants
Looking for answers or running away?
Me, I’m here to escape my history
And find a Golden Gate to a brand new day

But I brought all my nightmares with me
And sleep’s a silent ordeal
How do I burn the bridges to my memories
When they were all forged in steel?

I know I need to look forward now
And learn the lessons of my past
I know I need to look forward now
Rebuild my story so love can last

How do I find my way through
This city of silicon dreams?
Do I take the wiggle or climb those hills?
The way ahead wasn’t clear to me

But then I finally realized
I wasn’t running away
The more I ran into the arms of the city
The more it begged me to stay

And I am ready to look forward now
I’ve solved the puzzle of who I need to be
Yes, I am ready to look forward now
I feel this city shine its lights on me

Yes I am only looking forward now
I’ve solved the puzzle and set myself free
I’m only looking forward now
I feel this city shine its lights on me
