Down In the Dirt

I can't get up.
I'm stuck, I can't get up.
I've been trying all my life!
To get over you...
But. . .

(Chorus) I'm down in the dirt!
And I'm sinking faster!
I'm down in the dirt! And I'm crawling, bawling! Just trying not to give up!
Up! Up! (Oh oh!)

I'm almost gone. . .
I'm hard to see. . .
Almost invisible. . .
My hope is consumed. . .
And you won't help me.

When I thought you threw the rope! When I thought you finally came for me! (came for me) You just left and I was buried. . .

(Chorus) I'm in the dirt. . .
I'm in the ground. . .
People walk over me! And I can't make a sound! Nobody cared for me like I thought they did! They just turned around. . . and walked away.

But I'm growing stronger now. . .
Into a new person...
One that will never fall again...

I'm on the ground!
I'm on the ground!
I'm not falling down!
I'm finally free. . .
And I'm safe and sound...
