Help, I have found this place again
All too familiar, it lurks in my past
It whispers me back, and I give in
To hurt myself, I cannot resist
But this time, I am the only one to blame.

Be my strength
Wrap me up, condition, warm me
Blanket my sorrow with your grace
Breathe in my troubles and understand
I'm weak, I'm lonely, in need of a friend.

Help, I've lost my way again
In a sea of troubles that won't stop churning
And with my spinning compass I have faltered
I can't find my way back to myself
But I'm the captain, the only one to blame.

Be my guide
Hold me close, untwist, unfold me
And find the scared little girl hiding underneath
See me exposed, and understand
I am tired of not knowing who I am.

Help, I am drowning again
Below the surface, gasping for air
These iron chains won't let me go
They've fastened their grip tight on my soul
But the blame is all my own.

Be my hope
Reach out your hand, find, relieve me
Before I sink far too deep
Grasp onto what's left and understand
My desperation, I am slipping away.

I will open these channels, let you in
So you can break this iron heart, make me feel again
I cannot offer much but love and loyalty
If you can find the courage to stay by me, to

Be my redemption.
