It's so hard to get by when the tears cloud up your eyes
So let them fall
And everytime you cry it seems another angel dies
As I recall

Put your hand in mine
Another broken soul
Trust is hard to find
But I'm watching it unfold

Two stories, seperate lives
Feed the desperation
A blind man throwing knives
They're headed our direction

I'm broken... You're beaten down

So much for dedication
So much for desperation
So much for bad excuses
So much for covered bruises

When you lay your head next to mine
You cry to me
Don't tell me things are fine
Don't lie to me

I can see the truth
Benath the make-up
I can see through you
The lies you made up

I can see the truth
It cries out from within
I can see through you
Why do you shelter him

There's so much to fear when the screams echo through your ear
So shut them out
And everytime you're near you're wishing you could stay right here
But you can't live without

Press your lips to mine
Another lifeless heart
Leave your past behind
We can watch it fall apart

Two signs point opposite ways
Follow either to the end of this story
As the sharks set upon us in the rolling waves
Will you just give up or will you somehow find me

I'm broken... You're beaten down

So much for dedication
So much for desperation
So much for bad excuses
So much for covered bruises

When you lay your head next to mine
You cry to me
Don't tell me things are fine
Don't lie to me

I can see the truth
Benath the make-up
I can see through you
The lies you made up

I can see the truth
It cries out from within
I can see through you
Why do you shelter him

You need something better
You deserve something that will last forever
Let me shelter you
Let me shelter you
