lyrics

Well I can tell that my messages are unread.
I can see you’re meaning to move on.
I know that you’ve grown way past me.
It didn’t work, and that hurts but it’s wrong.

And I’m really very sorry,
About these things they crawl in my brain.
I root them out and I kill them,
But they always come back again.

Please, please help me.
Wipe away these bad thoughts.
Please help me,
Because being with you is all that I want.

I’ve crawled these walls but I’d slip down.
I’ve aimed but these flames they burn.
Misjudged how much this hurts us.
I’ve tried, inside, ‘cause I yearn.

And I’m really very sorry,
About these things that crawl in my head.
I chase them down and kill them.
But they expand and flourish instead.

I’ve silenced the violence that haunts me.
But the sounds are bound to come back.
I see it’s me who needs assistance.
It’s a mistake, to be afraid to ask.

Please help me,
Wipe away these bad thoughts.
Help me,
Because being with you is all that I want.
Being with you’s all I want.
