Child of Universe – Lyrics

CHILD OF THE UNIVERSE

I grew up to be myself
Still I feel there’s something else
Look at all the satellites
Get lighter in the sky

We meet and we divide
The patterns made by human life
Look at all the stars tonight
They’re brighter in the sky

Together we are all alone
All trying to make it home

In this world if it’s the only thing I’ve ever learned
Is that everything you love can hurt
And the only thing you are is a child of the universe
In this world if it’s the only thing I’ve ever learned
Is that everything you love can hurt
And with everything my freedom’s worth
I’ll be a child of the universe

I am brave but I am scared
I am lonely but I’m prepared
We are all connected
Without knowing who we are

Together we all roll on a stone
All trying to make it home

In this world if it’s the only thing I’ve ever learned
Is that everything you love can hurt
And the only thing you are is a child of the universe
In this world if it’s the only thing I’ve ever learned
Is that everything you love can hurt
And with everything my freedom’s worth
I’ll be a child of the universe

In this world if it’s the only thing I’ve ever learned
Is that everything you love can hurt
And the only thing you are is a child of the universe
In this world if it’s the only thing I’ve ever learned
Is that everything you love can hurt
And with everything my freedom’s worth
I’ll be a child of the universe
I’ll be a child of the universe
Child of the universe

TOUCH

This is the home where, where my mother told me anything can happen
These are the pages where I kept my secrets underneath my bed
In a heart shaped necklace that my father bought me
Then there’s the park bench where I gave my first kiss away

This is the bedroom that I painted purple when I first left home
There is the journey that my car would take me to my days at work
And the mountain I climbed after I fought the rain
This is the goodbye that I gave my best friend for the very last time

I said to myself, said to my lover
Everything feels your touch
Everything good, reaches another
You never can feel too much
Ai, ai, when a butterfly moves it’s wings
There’s a storm happening somewhere

This is the feeling that only you can give me and it gives me chills
This is the last time that I said I need you but I always will
There’s an old song that when it comes on the radio
I’ve gotta pull over because it makes me feel like I’m home, I’m home, home

I said to myself, said to my lover
Everything feels your touch
Everything good, reaches another
You never can feel too much
Ai, ai, when a butterfly moves it’s wings
There’s a storm happening somewhere

Yes it does , feel your touch, yes it does, feel your touch, yes it does
Do you really have to ask me

And your love, and your love feels your touch and your love feels your touch
Did you hear it from somebody

I said to myself, said to my lover
Everything feels your touch
Everything good, reaches another
You never can feel too much

WISH YOU WERE HERE

I’ve been knock, knock, knocking at the thought of your door
But you’re not, not, not here anymore
I ring, ring, ring you’re every phone in my head
But I can’t get through, the connection is dead

I want, want to tell you about the news today
But you wouldn’t believe me, you’d laugh it away
There’s a ghost standing at the foot of my bed
And it’s you, it’s you, it’s you

It was you they told me who was in trouble
I couldn’t breathe on the other side of the world
And there was nothing I could do to help you
And it’s true today would be your birthday
It would’ve been your 27th year
And I miss you in the earth’s atmosphere
I wish you were here

I go back, back, back in every memory of it
But the clock ticks over every minute we shared
On my knees begging for it not to be true
But it was you, it was you, it was you

It was you they told me who was in trouble
I couldn’t breathe on the other side of the world
And there was nothing I could do to help you
And it’s true today would be your birthday
It would’ve been your 27th year
And I miss you in the earth’s atmosphere
I wish you were here

Instead of just in my dreams and in my imagination
Confusing me completely from another dimension
Can you see the beauty from a new beginning somewhere
Cause I feel like I won’t repair with time

It was you, it was you, it was you

It was you they told me who was in trouble
I couldn’t breathe on the other side of the world
And there was nothing I could do to help you
And it’s true today would be your birthday
It would’ve been your 27th year
And I miss you in the earth’s atmosphere
I wish you were here

I wish you were here

KNOCKED OUT

Pushed out from the standing start, forced to run
I was minding my own heart, before the gun
I’m the silence in the noise that’s trying to break through

Say it’s only for the best so I can breathe
Phoenix buried in the mess inside of me
I don’t understand the hurt why you put it on me

So you be who you wanna be and I’ll be me

When I get knocked out
Before you count to ten I’ll get up again
And if I get knocked down
After I hit the floor I’ll be coming back, are you?
Don’t underestimate me
Be careful when you hate me
Don’t underestimate me
When I get knocked down

I know where I wanna go, that’s up to me
Might not be the itch you know but I will be
There’s always something in the way if you let it stop you

So you be who you wanna be and I’ll be me

When I get knocked out
Before you count to ten I’ll get up again
And if I get knocked down
After I hit the floor I’ll be coming back, are you?
Don’t underestimate me
Be careful when you hate me
Don’t underestimate me

Say it’s all just been a test to get back to me
Send an arrow where it hurts and I’ll be okay
There’s only one way I can live and that’s my way

So you be who you wanna be and I’ll be me

When I get knocked out
Before you count to ten I’ll get up again
And if I get knocked down
After I hit the floor I’ll be coming back, are you?
Don’t underestimate me
Be careful when you hate me
Don’t underestimate me
When I get knocked down

I’ll be coming back, are you?
When I get knocked out

SITTING ON TOP OF THE WORLD

Waiting, watching, listening to every little sign I see
You are so bright, shining above all the city lights
You know it’s right when all of the stars in the sky align
If you and I, we are together as one tonight

So get up, stand up
What you waiting for
Let’s go jump in
We’ve got to live life
Give in to begin
We’ve got a love like no one else

Now I’m with you
Now I’m with you
Now I’m with you
Sitting on top, sitting on top of the world

Saved me from me
You gave me everything I need
You’ll be forever in my heart

So get up, stand up
What you waiting for
Let’s go jump in
We’ve got to live life
Give in to begin
We’ve got a love like no one else

Now I’m with you
Now I’m with you
Now I’m with you
Sitting on top, sitting on top of the world

All is quiet at night
We say only things for us to hear

So get up, stand up
What you waiting for
Let’s go jump in
We’ve got to live life
Give in to begin
We’ve got a love like no one else

Now I’m with you
Now I’m with you
Now I’m with you
Sitting on top, sitting on top of the world

I’M NOT READY

I am broken
There’s a stranger on the phone
Something’s missing from seven years ago
You tell me baby, don’t you cry anymore
That’s the past and not what we’ve become but I know

I am shaking
Not a breath left to breathe
All this sadness so cold that I can’t speak

Look me in the eyes
You know it’s ok that we didn’t make it forever
Come hold my hand
Hold on to this last minute we have together

I’m not ready to say goodbye
You and god both know all the years I’ve tried
And if it’s over give me the strength to go
Cause I know I’m never gonna be
I’ll never be ready to say goodbye to you

Your bags are all packed
They’re waiting at the door
But it’s hard to imagine you won’t live here anymore
I’m scared of tomorrow and the emptiness to come
But I’ve changed for the better since I’ve known your love

So look me in the eyes
You know it’s ok that we didn’t make it forever
Come hold my hand
Let’s hold on to this last minute we have together

Cause I’m not ready to say goodbye
You and god both know all the years I’ve tried
And if it’s over give me the strength to go
Cause I know I’m never gonna be
I’ll never be ready to say goodbye to you
I’ll never be ready

And even if we tried we would end up right back to this place together
This was not a lie, what we had will always be real love forever

Cause I’m not ready to say goodbye
You and god both know
All the years I’ve tried
And if it’s over give me the strength to go
Cause I know I’m never gonna be
I’m not ready to say goodbye
You and god both know
All the years I’ve tried
And if it’s over give me the strength to go
Cause I know I’m never gonna be
I’ll never be ready to say goodbye to you

I’ll never be ready

HUNTERS AND THE WOLVES

I fought for you
I went to war in a battle of two
And in many years in solitary
I’m captured by the enemy

I tried, I tried, everything just to survive
I’m living the life of someone else who wouldn’t even save himself

What did I know
I had my eyes closed for what it seemed like an eternity
Hungry eyes were preying on me
But didn’t you know, I wanted to go
I know you saw them wanting me and now I love them dangerously

The wolves come out, circling me
The hunters hunt, stamping their feet
I’ll play my game of hide and seek
But who will it be
Who will it be
Now that I’m free
Let the wolves come and get me

I know for sure
I’m ready now for so much more
And I’m not gonna fight it
This temperature is rising

I feel tonight the rhythm from the inside out
Or is it just the someone who I want so bad instead of you

He makes me feel like my body’s alive
On fire with the wonder, reminds me I’m a lover
Cause your own pain is driving me insane
It’s killing me to tell you this
But you’ll hear it and you’ll know it’s true

The wolves come out, circling me
The hunters hunt, stamping their feet
I’ll play my game of hide and seek
But who will it be
Who will it be
Now that I’m free
Let the wolves come and get me

Come and get, come and get, come and get me
Come and get, come and get, come and get me

The wolves come out, circling me
The hunters hunt, stamping their feet
I’ll play my game of hide and seek
But who will it be
Who will it be
Now that I’m free
Let the wolves come and get me

DANCING WITH A BROKEN HEART

Held my breath as the last wave pulled me under, under
What doesn’t kill you makes you so much stronger, stronger

Can you feel this pain
Rushing through these veins
Driving me insane but I won’t break

I won’t look back tonight
This is the time of my life
Underneath these stars
Dancing with a broken heart
Fight fire with fire
The truth to a liar
I’m going higher
Dancing with a broken heart

I’m gonna bury all the past just six feet under under
I’m gonna make a storm from lightning and thunder, thunder
I won’t let dogs lie in the peace and quiet
Moving on to another time

I won’t look back tonight
This is the time of my life
Underneath these stars
Dancing with a broken heart
Fight fire with fire
The truth to a liar
I’m going higher
Dancing with a broken heart

Can you feel this pain
Rushing through these veins
Driving me insane but I won’t break

I won’t look back tonight
This is the time of my life
Underneath these stars
Dancing with a broken heart
Fight fire with fire
The truth to a liar
I’m going higher

I won’t look back tonight
This is the time of my life
Underneath these stars
Dancing with a broken heart
Fight fire with fire
The truth to a liar
I’m going higher
Dancing with a broken heart

HYPNOTIZED

Been living my life in commotion
Like all the colors, bruised and broken
Life has a lot of smoke and mirrors
Seven years without love made it clearer

I woke up running with a pain in my heart
Can’t get there fast enough, yeah, fast enough
No matter what I do, I gotta get to you
Falling deeper in love, yeah, deeper in love
You have got my hypnotized
I lost control and now I’m trapped in all this feelings, going out of my mind
I’m going deeper in love, yeah, deeper in love with you

Like a spell I’ve fallen under
Intoxicating when you’re closer
Shower me with confetti rain
Down from northern skies
I’m gonna cut the strings off these balloon so watch them fly so high

I woke up running with a pain in my heart
Can’t get there fast enough, yeah, fast enough
No matter what I do, I gotta get to you
Falling deeper in love, yeah, deeper in love
You have got my hypnotized
I lost control and now I’m trapped in all this feelings, going out of my mind
I’m going deeper in love, yeah, deeper in love with you

I’m standing on the edge
Looking on this brave new world
Feeling vertigo, I take this step and just let go

Something’s got me mesmerized
Feels like I’ve been hypnotized

I woke up running with a pain in my heart
Can’t get there fast enough, yeah, fast enough
No matter what I do, I gotta get to you
Falling deeper in love, yeah, deeper in love
You have got my hypnotized
I lost control and now I’m trapped in all this feelings, going out of my mind
I’m going deeper in love, yeah, deeper in love with you

SAFE TO BELIEVE

She found a secret, hiding behind a closed door
No strength to believe it like a flame that can’t burn anymore

A heartbreak with sadness, a fear that was hard to let go
Then she found an angel, the love that she’d never known

So lay with me
I’ve been so scared to breathe
You make it safe to believe in all that I am
And take my hand
Love me for who I am
Teach me to dream again
It’s all that I need
You make it safe to believe

She had forgotten the beauty she lived in her dreams
Her heart had stopped hoping, broken by what she has seen

The chance constellation, a lighthouse as bright as the sun
Two hearts resonating, two lives now living as one

Lay with me
I’ve been so scared to breathe
You make it safe to believe in all that I am
And take my hand
Love me for who I am
Teach me to dream again
It’s all that I need
And you make it safe

The darkest times of your life
There’s a spirit that hears you’re right

Lay with me
I’ve been so scared to breathe
You make it safe to believe in all that I am

Lay with me
I’ve been so scared to breathe
You make it safe to believe in all that I am
And take my hand
Love me for who I am
Teach me to dream again
It’s all that I need
You make it safe to believe

You make it safe to believe

THE SPEED OF LIFE

How many times can you say that it’s over
How many ways can you say that I love you forever more
How many times can you make love with your lover
How many lives and many lies can we live with ourselves

How many times will you change your religion
And how many gods do you ask for the answers that grow when you’re sad
What has to break before you make a decision
Cause you never know which way to go, you just get off the bus and go home

God tell me the truth, how much is too many
Give me a sign if we crossed the line
Cause everyone else seems to know the direction
I’m frozen and I know it
And I’m out of breath from the speed of life
And I’m shaking and it’s freezing
I’m scared to death of the speed of life
The speed of life

How many dreams can you break till you’re broken
How many fights can you fight until you fall down on your knees
How many doors can get slammed in your face until one of them opens
It’s beautiful, it’s incredible, it’s the danger of life

God tell me the truth, how much is too many
Give me a sign if we crossed the line
Cause everyone else seems to know the direction
I’m frozen and I know it
And I’m out of breath from the speed of life
And I’m shaking and it’s freezing
I’m scared to death of the speed of life

And I’m shaking and it’s freezing
I’m scared to death of the speed of life
The speed of life

The speed of life

WAR ON LOVE

So I stand on this hill with my flag held high
With the will to survive, bullets flying by
Broken hearts scattered on this battlefield
Holding out for something real
I won’t give in, I won’t give up
Fight the hope in this war on love

All the dust has settled
I can finally see
I’m crawling from the wreckage
It’s brought me to my knees
Deep inside there’s a hunger
Waiting for some damn truth
The light on the horizon
Unanswered prayers belong to someone like you

So I stand on this hill with my flag held high
With the will to survive, bullets flying by
Broken hearts scattered on this battlefield
Holding onto something real
I won’t give in, I won’t give up
Fight the hope in this war on love

I’m gonna hold my ground
Broken arrow in my hand
I’m gonna hold it high above
Yeah, I won’t back down
I can see that the smoke is clearing
Distant thunder’s passing by
And my heart is calling out
Lets me know that I am still alive

So I stand on this hill with my flag held high
With the will to survive, bullets flying by
Broken hearts scattered on this battlefield
Holding onto something real
I won’t give in, I won’t give up
Fight the hope in this war on love

I’m calling out can you hear the sound
Of the drum that I’m beating so damn loud

So I stand on this hill with my flag held high
With the will to survive, bullets flying by
Broken hearts scattered on this battlefield
Holding out for something real
I won’t give in, I won’t give up

Fight the hope in this war on love
Fight the hope in this war on love
Fight the hope in this war on love

I won’t give in, I won’t give up
I fight for us in this war on love

I LOST ALL LOVE 4 YOU

When you walked into my life with your muddy shoes on and your baggage claim ticket one night
I thought it’d be ok cause there was something about you that made me feel somehow safe

I gave too much to you, you took it all away
And by now I had no more to give
So don’t try to come back and break me down
I am standing so much stronger now

I have lost my love, I have lost my love, I have lost my love for you
Every little bit, every part of it
There is nothing more to do
Oh I have lost my faith
I have lost my faith in everything you said was true
When the dust has settled down
I realized I lost the love for you

I lost my belief in tired excuses and the reasons why you weren’t there
I cried myself to sleep but now I’m back on my feet, I don’t need anything more from you
So go live your life and find another wife
Take her to that stupid restaurant you like

I have lost my love, I have lost my love, I have lost my love for you
Every little bit, every part of it
There is nothing more to do
Oh I have lost my faith
I have lost my faith in everything you said was true
When the dust has settled down
I realized I lost the love for you

It’s the same old story
Now my life before me is beautiful
And it’s waiting for me

Cause I found myself, yeah I found myself
So I’ve learned a lot from you
I will never change, not for someone else
I’m my own woman through and through

I have lost my love, I have lost my love, I have lost my love for you
Every little bit, every part of it
There is nothing more here to do
Oh I have lost my faith
I have lost my faith in everything you said was true
When the dust has settled down
I realized I lost the love for you

I lost the love for you

WHEN MY STARS COME OUT

Hey! When you gonna pull the trigger
I’m up and running like a river
Yeah, I’m already gone
Just when you think you know who I am
If you think I’m gonna keep on crying
Yeah, I’m already done

I smile when it’s the hardest time to smile
I climb when it’s the highest mountain to climb

Baby, baby when the sun goes down
That’s when my stars come out
Baby, baby when the sun goes down
That’s when my stars come out to shine

Hey! Should I let you go on lying
What’s the point of me denying
When I’ve already won
Hey! Maybe you should try to remember
You’re never gonna make me surrender
Cause I’ve already won

I smile when it’s the hardest time to smile
I climb when it’s the highest mountain to climb

Baby, baby when the sun goes down
That’s when my stars come out
Baby, baby when the sun goes down
That’s when my stars come out to shine

The sun sets, but it ain’t over yet
The sun sets, but it ain’t over yet
The sun sets, but it ain’t over yet
The sun sets

Baby, baby when the sun goes down
That’s when my stars come out
Baby, baby when the sun goes down
That’s when my stars come out to shine

When my stars come out
That’s when my stars come out

CONTROL

I woke up in our bed but you weren’t there
Some dreams start out as dreams and turn into nightmares

Feel it screaming your name
But it’s always the same
And I can’t shut my mouth
And hope you’ll love me

I, I’ve been at this too long
But I know that it’s wrong to be here
Tonight, I’ve decided you know
I’m taking back control
Watch as you leave
Break to your soul
Baby, I’m taking back control
Control

You had every chance to make it right
You know I loved you more than anyone else in life

I’m not yours anymore
I’m picking my tears up off the floor
‘Cause baby you had my heart and I’m taking it back

I, I’ve been at this too long
But I know that it’s wrong to be here
Tonight, I’ve decided you know
I’m taking back control
Watch as you leave
Break to your soul
Baby, I’m taking back control
Control

Control

So may I remind you who I was before you

I, I’ve been at this too long
But I know that it’s wrong to be here
Tonight, I’m just letting you know
I’m taking back, I’m taking it back, taking it back, I’m taking it back
Taking it back, taking it back, I’m taking it back
Tonight, I’m just letting you know
I’m taking back control
Watch as you leave
Break it to your soul
Baby, I’m taking back control

Control

Baby, I’m taking back control
Control

ALCOHOL

You fall asleep with the damage in the room
And I can’t escape the stranger living under your skin
Who’s this I see
You’re not the man that fell in love with me

I can’t pretend anymore
It’s tragic like when a Shakespeare play comes to the end
It’s intoxicating me

So go ahead, take her to your bed
Tell her all your fears and let her kiss your lips
Dead, swimming round your head
Drowning out the days
That we made love
It’s all in my heart
And I’m losing all control
Cause you gave away your soul to the alcohol
To the alcohol

The dreams we had
They build me up and knock me round
I can’t decide whether it’s better to let you fall down
I’m not so good with your self-inflicted pain

I can’t pretend anymore
You’re tragic and it’s a Shakespeare play come to the end
You’re gonna die from what you need

So go ahead, take her to your bed
Tell her all your fears and let her kiss your lips
Dead, swimming round your head
Drowning out the days
That we made love
It’s all in my heart
And I’m losing all control
Cause you gave away your soul to the alcohol

White ghost
A vision of yourself
A fraction of yourself
It’s the other side of you
While I was suffocating and feeling isolated
I never see your truth anymore

So go ahead, take her to your bed
Tell her all your fears and let her kiss your lips
Dead, swimming round your head
Drowning out the days
That we made love
It’s all in my heart
And I’m losing all control
Cause you gave away your soul to the alcohol

NO COMMUNICATION

There’s a hand over my mouth
So I can’t speak, speak to you
I’m tied, tied up in chains
And what remains is the silence

I feel the night around my days
As if the cold is here to stay
There are hands over my eyes
So I can’t see what you’re trying to do to me

I can’t tell you what you want to know
I can’t tell you all you need to hear
Cause there’s no communication
I can’t let you crawl inside my dreams
I can’t tell you all my hopes and fears
Cause there’s no communication here
There’s no communication here
There’s no communication here
There’s no communication

There are tongues that twist and turn
That twist my words until I don’t know them
You lie in black and white
And steal the night shackles me frozen

I call your name
But you’re not there
I’m not insane
The water protect my heart and mind from you

I can’t tell you what you want to know
I can’t tell you all you need to hear
Cause there’s no communication
I can’t let you crawl inside my dreams
I can’t tell you all my hopes and fears
Cause there’s no communication here

There’s no communication
There’s no communication
There’s no communication
There’s no communication

I can’t tell you what you want to know
I can’t tell you all you need to hear
Cause there’s no communication here

I can’t tell you what you want to know
I can’t tell you all you need to hear
Cause there’s no communication
I can’t let you crawl inside my dreams
I can’t tell you all my hopes and fears
Cause there’s no communication here

I can’t tell you what you want to know
I can’t tell you all you need to hear
Cause there’s no communication here

UNCOVERED

How do I begin again
Let my heart just breathe it in
Show the world that I’m alive

How do I regain to trust
With everything I’ve ever lost
And all I wanna do is hide

When you think you just can’t take anymore, anymore of it
I’m holding on, holding on to this

Take it, break it, strip it all the way discovered
Reason, this feeling, that’s gotta be uncovered
A new day, a secret, a fire in me and a lover
When you think you’ve taken everything
Here I am discovered
Here I am uncovered
Here I am uncovered

I found a girl inside of me
That I’ve been missing for so long
I told her that I’d never leave

No matter how strong the pain
I wouldn’t change a single day
Cause they are all the signs of me

When I think I just can’t take anymore, anymore of it
I’m holding on, holding on to this

Take it, break it, strip it all the way discovered
A reason, a feeling, that’s gotta be uncovered
A new day, a secret, a fire in me and a lover
When you think you’ve taken everything
Here I am discovered
Here I am uncovered

Take it, break it, strip it all the way discovered
A reason, a feeling, that’s gotta be uncovered
A new day, a secret, a fire in me and a lover
When you think you’ve taken everything
Here I am

Take it, break it, strip it all the way discovered
A reason, a feeling, that’s gotta be uncovered
A new day, a secret, a fire in me and a lover
When you think you’ve taken everything
Here I am discovered
Here I am uncovered

So how do I begin again
Let my heart just breathe it in
Show the world that I’m alive

WAITING FOR FOREVER

A shadow boxin with a trick of light
A day that disappears into the night
Wings of gold that shattered into dust
So understand what’s in your hands is not enough

Why don’t you stop
Waiting for forever
Forever might never come
Why don’t you stop
Waiting for forever
Living like it’s not begun
Cause the now
The now is the only time that matters
Come on stop
Waiting for forever
Forever might never come

Forever might never come

The moment we decide to let it go
The future is the one without control
Lose yourself while love’s supposed to be
Can pull you in and feed the insecurities

Why don’t you stop
Waiting for forever
Forever might never come
Why don’t you stop
Waiting for forever
Living like it’s not begun
Cause the now
The now is the only time that matters
Come on stop
Waiting for forever
Forever might never come

Forever might never come

You want it all, everything – you want it for free
And everyone would be everything you said you’d be

Why don’t you stop
Waiting for forever
Forever might never come
Why don’t you stop
Waiting for forever
Living like it’s not begun
Cause the now
The now is the only time that matters
Come on stop
Waiting for forever
Forever might never come

Forever might never come

DAUGHTER

One day I’ll thank you
But right now I’m just too raw
I am so wired, I’m so tired
By fighting every little war

I won’t live in your fear or doubt in who I am
I can’t stay, I want to scream out loud

So let me fall, I won’t break
I’ll take my heart to my grave
And I will breathe under the water
You’ve forsakened the daughter here
And I won’t give up on you
And I won’t give up on me

One day we won’t exist
And all the hurt will turn to dust
It is easier to shut down
Than to open up to trust

I love hard, I speak out, I lay my truths on the table
I’ve been through a thing or two by now

So let me fall, I won’t break
I’ll take my heart to my grave
And I will breathe under the water
You’ve forsakened the daughter here
And I won’t give up on you
And I won’t give up on me

All the open hearts are fighting to be heard
In a modern world
All the raging tide and I’m down on my love

So let me fall, I won’t break
I’ll take my heart to my grave
And I will breathe under the water
You’ve forsakened the daughter here
And I won’t give up on you
And I won’t give up on me
And I won’t give up on you
And I won’t give up on me

I won’t give up on me

RISE

Give me a hero
Someone to help me understand
I need an angel
Someone who’d take my hand without asking why or thinking twice

And lay me down
Make me feel safe
Until I’m back on my feet
There’s a second chance for me to escape this
This gravity

So lift me up and teach me how to love and rise above it all
I’m crawling out of my skin
So cut these strings from all that’s held me down
You’ve got to show me how to, to believe again
I’ve nothing left to hide
I’m trying to open up my eyes
Help me to rise
Help me to rise

I need a saviour
Someone who’s gonna make a change
I need a soldier
Someone to stand right by my side every time, day or night

And lay me down
Make me feel safe
I’m starting to see there’s a world out there for me
Let me make believe

So lift me up and teach me how to love and rise above it all
I’m crawling out of my skin
So cut these strings from all that’s held me down
You’ve got to show me how to, to believe again
I’ve nothing left inside
I’m trying to open up my eyes
Help me to rise
Help me to rise

Is there a hero
Someone who’ll help me understand

So lift me up and teach me how to love and rise above it all
I’m crawling out of my skin
So cut these strings from all that’s held me down
You’ve got to show me how to, to believe again
I’ve nothing left inside
I’m trying to open up my eyes
Help me to rise
Help me to rise
Help me to rise
Help me to rise
And rise
