"Pain is just weakness leaving the body"


You know I've always been the kind of girl
who liked to walk in her own direction
Heart of stone and walls of steel
Nah, I didn't need protectin
So much has changed in so little time
Now, I have a confession

I was wrong

And here I am so
scared to death
a war is raging
'neath my chest
Harder to breath with
every breath
Well, that didn't take long

So wave goodbye to being strong
It's hard enough just to carry on
when everything you know is gone

I'm so tired of hanging
onto this cloud
So terrified
of falling to the ground
and I can't tell
which ways up or which ways down
but I keep pretendin'
For far too long
I've been up here
Waiting for you
to magically appear
take your hand
wipe away the tears
but I'm left fendin'
for myself
No one but God here
by my side
No reason left to
Fight this fight
I'm losing my grip, losing time
and I just wanna let go

You know I never thought I would
see the day when my walls came crashing down
Though my walls of steel kept me
safe and sound
and I thought they were strong enough
to keep you out
but I guess I was wrong

And now I see how blind I've been
But I can't blame this on ignorance
'cause the truth's been boiling
underneath my skin
It's been there all along

And I keep trying to be strong
But you make it harder just to carry on
Now everything I know is gone

And I'm so tired of hanging
onto this cloud
So terrified
of falling to the ground
and I can't tell
which ways up or which ways down
but I keep pretendin'
For far too long
I've been up here
Waiting for you
to magically appear
take your hand
wipe away the tears
but I'm left fendin'
for myself
No one but God here
by my side
No reason left to
Fight this fight
I'm losing my grip, losing time
and I just wanna let go

-Musical solo-
I'm so tired of hanging
onto this cloud
But I'm not ready
to fall to the ground
and I can't tell
which ways up or which ways down
What's the use in pretendin'
For far too long
I've been up here
Waiting for someone
who'd never appear
take their hand
wipe away the tears
Guess I'm stuck fendin'
for myself
No one but God here
by my side
I'm through
Fighting this fight
I'm losing my grip, losing time
and I just wanna let go

I think I might let go
Just wanna let go
