Take this heart buried in stone and ash Clothe these frail bones in skin and flesh Fashion beauty in my weary frame Filter love into my veins again (Chorus) I am dying Hear me crying Barely breathing And I can’t see I’m anxious and waiting I’m suffocating And everything’s hanging on your next move My pride has me strangled And lies have me tangled And everything is hanging on what you do Break my legs or I will run again And undo everything you’ve done and been Arrest my tongue, a jagged blade Guard my mind by barricade Take me out from underneath, relieve me (Chorus) Break me down to skin and bones Til I’m broken and exposed Whittle something beautiful of me (Chorus)

Well lately, every comfort eludes me And I can’t seem to find my way And they tell me these moments, The moments are fleeting But without you, these moments they drone of for days Cause you break through the confusion And it’s nothing that you say (Chorus) It’s your company that I miss The sweetness of your kiss And your quiet tenderness It’s you with me at the end of the longest day And all the things that I cannot say [It's the way you are] Spring seems such a terrible distance And some days I don’t know if I’m going to last Cause I’m growing so impatient But I’m trying to wait it out (Chorus) Words cannot define, reach into my mind To express all the things that I need you to hear That I’m needing you here… (Chorus)

I thought that I knew you That I could see through into your heart So why am I blind and Unable to find you where you are For so long I have wondered Where it was you’d gone Oh, I’ve been so wrong (Chorus) I thought I had you down I had you figured out But I look away and you’re somewhere else And I, no matter how I try No, I still can’t see or feel you Where are you I believed and I trusted And proved that I wanted what you gave So why are you silent While I, in the quiet, fight the hate For so long I have wondered Why you walked away And you had nothing to say (Chorus) Where are you now (Chorus)

I don’t know where it fell apart Or where I came up missing But I’m past a stubborn hope Back inside the wishing This was over, back to normal And I’d get right back to my life Where all the things that fell to pieces Find a way into the light And it’s not that things are wretched It’s that I’m a filthy whore I’d deny what satisfies me For the thought of maybe more That never guarantees an end Only promises a friend Turned to foe before the day is done Well, all I know is I’d fight anything if in my way And I’d die before you ever hear me say Save, Save, Save me Well I’m not so discontent That I would turn on what I know But I’m not afraid to tell you That I’m scared to death to go From here and where I’ve always been To where you are inside my head Trace my steps back to you Learn how not to Fight, fight what I cannot understand Cause I would die before I’d ever take a hand to Save, Save, Save me Take the blood drained from a side And you can turn a prostitute into a bride Take three nails, a crown of thorns And you can shape a wife out of a whore Save, Save, Save me

Friday night, you’re driving home Is it so hard to find your phone To tell me I’ve been on your mind You say I’d be good for you And then recant and say we’re through I wish you’d just make up your mind One day in and one day out There’s just one thing I’m sure about I’m tired of playing all these games I don’t wanna be alone I’ve almost come undone I don’t wanna be alone anymore I’ve been so long here by myself And all I want is someone else To tell me everything’s alright I’m not blind, but I can’t see What the hell is wrong with me Putting up a losing fight One day on and one day off I won’t ever be enough If this is all we’ll ever be I don’t wanna be alone I’ve almost come undone I don’t wanna be alone anymore I don’t wanna be alone I’ve almost had enough I don’t wanna be alone anymore, no I can’t spend my life here waiting While you’re deliberating If you want me, take me now Or set me free I don’t wanna be alone I’ve almost come undone I don’t wanna be alone anymore I don’t wanna be alone I’ve almost had enough I don’t wanna be alone anymore, no

I can’t stay this way It’s not who I’m meant to be And though I’m not at my worst You know there’s so much more to me Than all these little fears That rule and run me through the ground Dig a hole, it’s six-feet-deep to bury me Before I have a chance, a chance to come around (Chorus) And oh, these little thing that bury me These things that bind me in my need If only I could find a way beyond The way things seem to be Then I’d be free Well I know I can’t remain In confusion and dis-ease And I know I need a change But I don’t know how to leave All these little fears That rule and run me through the ground Dig a hole, it’s six-feet-deep to bury me Before I have a chance, a chance to come around (Chorus) But too much of my history won’t let me go And there’re too many questions Leaving too many unknowns And all I want, and all I need Is a way back to my knees If I could find you, then I’d see you And I know that I’d believe That all these little things can’t bury me These things can’t bind me in my need You are the way beyond the way things seem, The way things seem to be Oh and I am free

I’m thinking clear now Yeah I can hear now You have opened up my eyes And I am well aware now And I believe I do believe I’m wide awake now And I can’t shake how You could take the universe And turn it upside down To make things right You took the dark and made it bright (Chorus) And there is nothing better There is nothing better Than knowing you will be my home forever There is no one else Who could save me from myself Yeah, I’m believing You're the air I’m breathing And as long as I’m alive You are how my heart’s beating There is nothing more Above, below, beside, before (Chorus) Halleluiah! Halleluiah! I’m alive Halleluiah! Halleluiah! I’m alive (Chorus) No, I know there is no one else There is no one else
