This place terrifies, it's new (but close to what I left behind)
But I'll settle in time
For now, I'll just deliver my lines
Oh, my lines, learn the moves (and compromise)
One day at a time

And if I fall asleep tonight
At least I know the panic's on the other side
So I'm delicate (so delicate), careful, and confident
That this will be all I need
So take my hands and run with me

This, oh, this was never going to be enough for you
Call the search away and I will guide you home
This, oh, this was never going to be enough for you
Call the search away and I will guide you home

Nervous (shh) smiles and photo opportunities are all-American games
"We'll turn the gunfire to handshakes
And blur all those memories that keep you awake"

But this is not an empty threat,this is not a trial
This is the war that you made
So I'll be the footsoldier who drags you from the wreckage
And makes you talk, stands you up straight

This, oh, this was never going to be enough for you
Call the search away, and I will guide you home

My heart will steer this ship
(She prays, prays that this will end differently)
My lungs will find dry land

This, oh, this was never going to be enough for you
Call the search away, and I will guide you home
