Oh, father, stumbling to the mat,
just like a falling acrobat.
Oh, father.
And oh, mama, I tried to be so brave.
Ain't it a shame how little's changed?
Ain't it a hard one.

And oh, my God, here's my heart.
And when it's over, understand:
You're not the only broken man.

I have been praying, not sure quite to whom,
sometimes just to an empty room.
I have been praying.
And she's been crying, suddenly like clouds
covering all our heads somehow.
She has been crying.

And oh, my God, here's my heart.
And when it's over, understand:
Faith, I'm an orphan, hold my hand.

And build me a sailboat, something made of wood.
Watch it float further than it should.
Build me a sailboat.
Or find a dreamer, someone who has wings.
Help me float over everything.
Find me a dreamer.

And oh, my God, hold my heart.
And when it's over, understand:
You're not the only broken man.
And faith, I'm an orphan, hold my hand.
And strength, be a soldier, help me stand.

Yeah, you're not the only broken man.
