​Dear Wormwood

This song is by The Oh Hellos and appears on the album Dear Wormwood (2015).

When I was a child
I didn't hear a single word you said
The things I was afraid of
They were all confined beneath my bed

But the years have been long
And you have taught me well to hide away
The things that I believed in
You've taught me to call them all escapes

I know who you are now

There before the threshold
I saw a brighter world beyond myself
And in my hour of weakness
You were there to see my courage fail

For the years have been long
And you have taught me well to sit and wait
Planning without acting
Steadily becoming what I hate

I know who you are now

I have always known you
You have always been there in my mind
But now I understand you
And I will not be part of your designs

I know who I am now
And all that you've made of me
I know who you are now
And I name you my enemy

I know who I am now
I know who I want to be
I want to be more than this devil inside of me
