I've been drinking myself into oblivion
The deeper the pain, the harder to deaden
Staring into space, tuning out the bar
Coming up for air
Only to seek a minor distraction
But escaping doesn't get me very far
Away
From the cords that we’ve entangled
Away
From the smile I used to know
I would hold you all night
If there was such a thing as second chances
If I had just made different choices
I'd know how to live again
And I would hold you all night
And pray the morning light would never wake you
And time would stop to heal the pain I gave you
Baby, I would hold you all night

I've been finding myself in harsh realizations
Hearing the truth in your indignation
There is such a thing, as being too strong
I was unaware
I made myself into an island
Too afraid to let you in too long
You tried
Giving all your heart could offer
I tried
But my efforts were too late

I would hold you all night
If there was such a thing as second chances
If I had just made different choices
I'd know how to live again
And I would hold you all night
And pray the morning light would never wake you
And time would stop to heal the pain I gave you
Baby, I would hold you all night

If I could take back every word I said
And resurrect us from the dead
I'd thank God beneath my breath
And never let you go

I would hold you all night
If there was such a thing as second chances
If I had just made different choices
I'd know how to live again
And I would hold you all night
And pray the morning light would never wake you
And time would stop to heal the pain I gave you
Baby, I would hold you all night

    General CommentThis song is as much about missing someone as it is being disgusted with yourself. Being able to appreciate what you have is so much easier when it's gone, and some of us can't accept that.
