The Unmaking

This is where the walls gave way
This is demolition day
All the debris and all this dust
What is left of what once was
Sorting through what goes and what should stay
 
Every stone I laid for you
As if you had asked me to
Monument to holy things
Empty talk and circling
Isn't that what we're supposed to do?
 
What happens now?
When all I've made is torn down
What happens next?
When all of you is all that's left
 
This is the unmaking
Beauty and the breaking
Had to lose myself to find out who you are
Before each beginning
There must be an ending
Sitting in the rubble
I can see the stars
This is the unmaking
This is the unmaking
 
The longer and the tighter that we hold
Only makes it harder to let go
Love will not stay locked inside
A steeple or a tower high
Only when we're broken are we whole
 
What happens now?
When all I've made is torn down
 
This is the unmaking
Beauty and the breaking
Had to lose myself to find out who you are
Before each beginning
There must be an ending
Sitting in the rubble
I can see the stars
This is the unmaking
This is the unmaking
 
I'll gather the same stones where
Everything came crashing down
I'll build you an altar there
On the same ground
Because what stood before
Was never yours
 
This is the unmaking
Beauty and the breaking
Had to lose myself to find out who you are
Before each beginning
There must be an ending
Sitting in the rubble
I can see the stars
This is the unmaking
This is the unmaking
Oh this is the unmaking
Had to lose myself
To find out who you are
