Here's to words that tell the truth, when it's easier to lie
Here's to staring into the sun, when you used to close your eyes
I was the dark before the dawn, the voice without a song,
The words that came out wrong but you heard me all along

Untangle me, I'm not looking for a sign,
Keep your body next to mine and set me free
Untangle me, from these feelings trapped inside
Way out past the smoke and fire is where I'll be,
I've been waiting such a long time for someone to come along, untangle me

I'm on the inside looking outside, that's the only place I've been
Hesitating, suffocating, but then you let me in
I was the storm before the calm, the hopeless hanging on,
The words that came out wrong, but you heard me all along

Untangle me, I'm not looking for a sign,
Keep your body next to mine and set me free
Untangle me, from these feelings trapped inside
Way out past the smoke and fire is where I'll be,

Yeah, whoa, untangle me, whoa
And maybe for the first time, you'll get the best of me
The part that isn't broken like before,
The man I'm not afraid of anymore

Untangle me, I'm not looking for a sign,
Keep your body next to mine, set me free, yeah
Untangle me, from these feelings trapped inside
Way out past the smoke and fire is where I'll be,
I've been waiting such a long time for someone to come along, untangle me

Whoa, oh no baby
Untangle me,
Whoa, oh keep on waiting
Untangle me
Whoa, that's all I'm saying
Untangle me

    General CommentIt's actually "the hopeless hanging on" not "the hope is hanging on."
