My eyes are open wide and
I can't stand the view of what's
Been held inside
It runs much deeper than skin
It's more than casual
And I'm defecting again

My senses are getting slow...

When I fall flat on my face
I know for sure, I feel secure that
You won't give up on me...
I've been there countless times before
You've never failed, you're never walked out on me

I'll never comprehend the grace you've shown to me
Your patience has no end
I want to give you a return on your investment in me
Something that I've never earned

Something that I can show...

I'm aware your looking over me
A prodigal is coming home
I'm aware you're waiting there for me
A prodigal is coming home today, he's on his way

    General CommentNot a bad song. Probably the best on Transparent.
    This is similar to Helpless on My Own, except the lyrics are less bitey.
