"i'm alright"

By , Stockton, CA
I'm alright, but it seems I've got you down
Your stitches take away from your looming frown
Darling, stand your ground
It's only a matter of time before love comes around
I'd gladly take the hurt you feel
Your pain and cuts I'll gladly steal
Just know I never hated you
I'm hanging from this cross I've made
I'm not dying, just glad you stayed
And I hope you enjoy the view
Enjoy the view
I'm alright, but it seems I've got you down
All the blood is rushing from your broken crown
And I see that you've found
A painless way to drown
I want to take the hurt you feel
Your cuts and bruises I pray will heal
You may tear me down like you often do to you
I'll hang from this cross I've made
Your burdens lifted. I'm glad you stayed
And I hope you enjoy the view
Enjoy the view
