I’ve taken this thing as far as I know how
I’ve turned every stone
And now you casually drop this bomb on me
And leave me standing here alone

Well the old days
They are over
Cause I’m not gonna chase you any more
If it’s me you want
You know where to find me

Lay me down
I lay you down
Let go the greatest treasure I have known
Lay me down
I lay you down
You would think I’d know by now
I cannot save a sinking ship alone

The fire’s stirring I’ve seen the embers
But the ice is creeping in here too
It’s hard to handle the truth hey baby
When you find out that the missing piece was you

We are cast down
But we’re not forsaken
And dying comes before new life begins
We are in the eye of a spiritual battle

Time is ticking
But it’s in the maker’s hands
And I’ve been thinking
It’s really all too much for me to understand
To understand so I will…
