lyrics

you said all of this would change
you said i'd fix this if i prayed for nine days
well i prayed

on bony knees at half past one
i begged for you to listen, protect your wayward son
i was your son

all i've learned from you is fear here
a love unquestioned is a love that isn't real
and when i asked that i could feel
i didn't mean to feel the world take you from me and everything
destroy my peace
till i had died

despite your absence i remain alive,
i've stitched me up, i've taken back the things
i gave away

he said i should write this song
the words, they gained new meaning
were in me all along

'cause what i've learned it to be here now
a life unquestioned is a life that shouldn't count
and when i finally let you be
i didn't know how much the world could mean to me
and all the ways that i'd find peace
when our love died

i will not hide, i will not lie
