When you came to me I said
Let me bury all my dead
Let me mourn for all I'll soon have lost
You said there's nothing here for you
Just look at all I've brought you through
You've got to lighten your load if you're carrying a cross

Oh my God I’m so small
Oh my God I’m afraid of everything

If you could stand to see the scars
I would let you have my heart
But there’s a part of you I feel like I don’t know
There’s a little boy inside
Who wants to run and hide
But he’s needing just to be held in your arms

I can hear those old church hymns
but the sound is growing faint and thin
There's so much chaos circling around my head
The world was light, I was a child
My hopes were free and running wild
I swore I wouldn't grow up but I guess I did

Oh my God
I’m so tired
Oh my God
I’m disappointed by everything

If you could stand to hear me cry
I would weep away the night
But I’m afraid to face the darkness in my soul
It’s getting easier to turn away
I see so much pain everyday
I don’t even feel it anymore

Some mornings i think i hear a song from long ago
Then in a moment it is gone
And I don’t know where it goes

When you came to me again
You were like an old familiar friend
Maybe you could set me free again
