I give you all my body to take
Take good damn care of it
The taste of salt and water
From my, from my shaking timid lips

I leave you all the things that I've seen
In a box in a public space
So take it, all my memories
They're yours
Hold them close to your face

Hold them close
Hold them close
Hold them close
Hold them close
Hold them close

Bring it back
Bring it home
Show me mercy
I'm a horrible man
Stay tight
Just don't go
Lay me down and hold my hand

I may never live to explain
How I was made for this bedroom
Feel my baby kicking my mouth
Through the skin of her mother
I pray you never hear my sore voice
You don't need to know what I've done
Just know that I am always around
We both share the same blood

Bring it back
Bring it home
Show me mercy
I'm a horrible man
Stay tight
Just don't go
Lay me down and hold my hand

Deliver all my goodwill
And my goodwill to my mom
If I die the years before her
Just read this to my brother:
"Be the one to close my eyes
Be the one not to cry
Laugh in my face when I die
I've lived one hell of a life
I've spent some odd years wishing I could share this with you"

Bring it back
Bring it home
Show me mercy
I'm a horrible man
Stay tight
Just don't go
Lay me down and hold my hand

Hold them close
Hold them close
Hold them close
Hold them close
Hold them close

Bring it back
Bring it home
Show me mercy
I'm a horrible man
Stay tight
Just don't go
Lay me down and hold my hand

Bring it back
Bring it home
Show me mercy
I'm a horrible man
Stay tight
Just don't go
Lay me down and hold my hand
