Tip of the Sword Lyrics Video Story

And now we come to the end of the tale, and it’s much different in reality than any imaginings of it – as is always the case with real life vs. our dreams. We dream, we wish, we pray, we envision, we project, we intend… but in the end the reality is never what we imagined. And sometimes that is not a bad thing. Not at all. Sometimes, the silver lining inside of the cloud that seems to follow us around is really something bigger. Something more… liberating.

Years went by and I had all but forgotten about Sarah. Life went on. My grief, however intense and debilitating, had faded into a memory. I went to school, started working in computers, I had a girlfriend who was really good to me… a car, friends. My life was good. I was happy, at least I thought I was anyway. The damage Sarah did to me emotionally and psychologically never really ever left me. I believe I am affected on a very deep level even today. There is a part of me that always feels… unworthy. It’s been an uphill climb to get my head out of that self-destructive state of mind, and for the most part today I am so much better. But I wasn’t remotely close to where I am now when she called me out of the blue about five years after she left me.

And as the song goes, after all that time, when she finally called, it all came back to me. I made a promise, and so I opened my heart, and my arms, and let her in again. She wanted me back! Exactly what I had dreamed about for so many long and terrible nights, right? But it struck me very suddenly that I had worked hard to get to a place where my life was happy, and stable, and I didn’t think of her anymore. What would happen if things didn’t work out? I was so fearful of having to relive the pain I experienced for so long after she left the first time that I just could not take the chance of it happening again. I believed that if things didn’t work out we could both be destroyed. It was too late.

She cried. She wanted me back, and she missed me, and as I watched her weep I felt very sad for her, because I knew something about how she felt. And then it struck me, that while I was suffering a life of living hell after she left, she never cared for me. She never acknowledged my pain – not really. I suffered alone, and at this moment in time I realized that what she was feeling, being rejected by me now, was only the tip of the iceberg compared to what I felt. If she felt pain, then she was only feeling the tip of of the sword she drove into my heart.

‘The pain you feel is touching the
tip of the bloody sword you
drove into my heart
so very long ago”

It was too late, and I knew if we got together, if we came any closer, the tip of the sword would be driven right through her. There was no small part of me that on a subconscious level – I truly believe – didn’t want to make her suffer in some way so she would know the pain she caused me.

Time heals all wounds. Or so they say. And it seems that time had healed the wounds left behind by Sarah’s abandonment. But as with all healing, there are scars.

When the wounds were sore it would have worked
but now it’s too late and I know that it hurts

Yes, when the wounds were fresh, when I was tender and vulnerable, it would have worked. But now I was healed – calloused – covered in scar tissue that she could not break through. It was too late.

She was my love, she was my life: but it was time to say goodbye.


Tip of the Sword (Title Track): Lyrics
by Jerry Boutot

After all this time you finally have called
I almost forgot who you were by now
In the of remembering the promise I made
I opened my arms right up to you babe
But now I’m a man and I’m not very weak
And this magic reunion has made me think
That we’d both be destroyed if things didn’t work
So now it’s too late and I know that it hurts
But, the pain that you feel is only touching the
Tip of the bloody sword
You drove into my heart so very long ago
It’s too late ’cause I’m afraid that
seeing you might drive it through

Maybe some day our paths will cross
Like you told me once before in a song
I’ll remember you with all of my heart
But we can never have a new start
‘Cause my pain and my time have ended the chance
Of meeting again for a new romance
When the wounds were sore it would have worked
But now it’s too late and I know that it hurts

But, the pain that you feel is only touching the
Tip of the bloody sword
You drove into my heart so very long ago
It’s too late ’cause I’m afraid that
seeing you might drive it through

The pain that you feel is only touching the
Tip of the bloody sword
You drove into my heart so very long ago
It’s too late ’cause I’m afraid that
seeing you might drive it

You were my love
You were my life
But I think that it is time
To say goodbye
