Bitter Root is from Seth Paul Macchi's debut release, The Valley EP


I even said the right words. I can really say them well
But everyone should know, my heart is evil

You begin to own me. You begin to control me (2X)

The bitter root grows
With a shocking lack of sunlight
The broken heart knows
Pain feels better than forgiveness

So I walk it out alone, wanting to remember just why I dislike you
I say I’m walking it out, that just means I’m holding on

So my thoughts of you start to fill every part of who I am
I can see it everywhere, just how bad you got to me…I’m not free
