Take my body I would give it to you
Take my pulse, my mind, my spirit -
whatever you think you could use
I would give them if it would set you free
to live even for a day apart from your memories

I know it ain't easy living with these scars
I know you're just trying to hide from the dark

You don't have it together so stop lying please
I know when you haven't eaten I can tell when you are weak
You tremble all the time and you flinch when I am near
I'm not going to hit you so you can rest that fear

I know it ain't easy living with these scars
I know you're just trying to hide from the dark

I don't know if you'll ever lose your wounds
And the marks tell a story nobody would chose
The black dogs are going to find you anywhere you run
It's always the same thing they want and you survived them once

I know it ain't easy living with these scars
I know you're just trying to hide from the dark

But maybe we're all just falling apart
