[intro-chorus-soft]
You fight what you’re given ‘til your plate is clean
you don’t try to hide what makes you mean
you fall from above and stumble in fear
you cant find a place to rest your head

is it easy to see me when im falling
is it obvious to you why im not calling anymore
can you look to find the truth past the lies you’re woven into
do you even want to know why im lying in the snow
so cold
I am so cold

-interlude-

no one can tell you where to go if you don’t know yourself
no one can tell you what to be if you’re not even sure that im me-ee-e-e

so ill try to find my way sometimes I might not get it right
I might get lost and walk alone in the dark one winter night
when the trees have all fallen from the weight of the snow
when the leaves have all been frozen like moments in time

[chorus]
You fight what you’re given ‘til your plate is clean
you don’t try to hide what makes you mean
you fall from above and stumble in fear
you cant find a place to rest your head

I will find you
tell you where you should be
I can see you
behind the lies you’ve said to me
the lies you’ve said to me
the truths you failed to see

no one can tell you where to go if you don’t know yourself
no one can tell you what to be if you’re not even sure that im me-ee-e-e

so ill try to find my way sometimes I might not get it right
I might get lost and walk alone in the dark one winter night
when the trees have all fallen from the weight of the snow
when the leaves have all been frozen like moments in time

fight what you’re given ‘til you’re plate is clean
don’t try to hide what makes you seem mean
fallen from above you stumble in fear
I’ll give you a place to rest your head
here is a place to rest your head

you don’t have to stumble
anymore
