- What Matters
You picked me up; don't drop me down.
I'm sorry, but you're my only hope now.
Don't rip these scars open any more.
If you do, fresh blood will pour.
I'm counting on you not to break my heart.
I'm begging you; please don't tear my world apart.
My darkened past is better left alone.
I'm broken, but not better off on my own.
I'm closer to you and it's better for me.
Don't hurt me any more. Don't hurt me, please.
I'm scared to death, frozen with fear.
I'm trusting you not to go; please stay near.
I've been broken before and my blood has been shed.
My pain feeds the horrors, and it's time to be fed.
I am not strong; I am weaker than most.
The only thing I can feel is my heart's hollow ghost.
I'm holding on to you, gripping for dear life.
My pain slashes deeper than any cut from a knife.
I hope you can see how deeply I'm under.
And I don't need to resurface to lightning and thunder.
You're helping me pull through these hardest of times.
When you hold me in your arms, I can't see where forever lies.
It's better for me not to know what's ahead.
Not knowing whether I'll be left alive or dead.
I'm trusting you with my life, just so you know.
So hold in your arms and never let me go.
