the first song with words I've written in a while


[verse 1]
I'm so tired of running in circles
be still and be here
I'm half tired, but layin awake
oh be still my last fear
you hold the door to my darkest room
why do you leave it open?
you say there's healing in the light
but why does it scare me so?

so don't give up on me no
i'm often so stupid and shameless
a work in progress much too slow
don't leave me like chalk on the sidewalk
so don't give up on me no
i know i'm this stupid and helpless
a work in progress i've been told
don't shake me off here on the sidewalk

[verse 2]
why aren't you off in the distance?
i'll pretend that i don't care
much too tired and lonely, rejected
to fight against your hand
why'd you open the door to my heart
it's a graveyard with death and decay
vulnerability leaves me scared
but will you abandon me?

i'm much too weary
from playing these games
i'm taking steps with you,
i'm learning to dance
