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

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


Break me down to skin and bones
Til I’m broken and exposed
Whittle something beautiful of me
