“Biro” by Honeyblood (2015)

 

 

Everyone is an author with something to say.
Everyone’s got a picture to paint.
My story will turn gold, or so I’ve been told.
It’s got ‘best-seller” written all over it.

All the pain you’ve been through will be the making of you.
All the pain you’ve been through, will be the making.

Nobody knows the trouble you’ve seen,
Nobody really comes close.
But you’re over it now, you can boast.
Each page printed is honest truth.
Troubles when they plagiarise you.
Shit to brand new, you’ll get around to it soon.

All the pain you’ve been through will be the making of you.
Tear the heart in two, it’ll be the making of you.

If I threw my pen into the sea,
I know they’ll be someone to write after me.

Will be the making of you.
All the pain you’ve been through will be the making of you.
