lyrics

You put plastic over the windows to keep out the cold
You did the best that you could, but still it got old
Trying to find the time inside your mind for all responsibilities
When all you ever wanted was to sleep and to love me
I drop a penny in a place I know
I'll help you find it if you just let go
I pray to God to loosen up this rope
That leaves you strangled in your dreams

I have so much to give
I want to spread myself thin
Leave a little piece of me underneath everyone's skin
And it's about time you make your life a little bit easier
Through the meds and the stress, I'll do my best
Because we're stronger together

I once asked myself
Who am I without the lie of who I want to be?
I'm now comfortable enough that the question doesn't matter to me
And it took a night with people to whom I once was dead
To appreciate the life that I built with my own hands
Bring on misery
Bring on pain
You'll never feel the way you feel again today

Who am I without the lie of who I want to be?
I'm now comfortable enough that the question doesn't matter to me
Who am I without the lie of who I want to be?
I'm now comfortable enough that the question doesn't matter to me

I have so much to give
I want to spread myself thin
Leave a little piece of me underneath everyone's skin
And it's about time you make your life a little bit easier
Through the meds and the stress, I'll do my best
Because we're stronger together
