In a Mississippi hotel room
I was wounded and confused
As I watched the 10 o’clock news
I was waiting on a late night call
That I knew would never come
And though I doubt it’s what you’d want
I call you from the steps outside
You say you were fast asleep
And every lie, it tortures me
I can’t kill what does not bleed
So please explain

Can you tell me what it is you need?
‘Cause I’ve been trying, still I cannot see
These wasted moments brought me to my knees
I just wanna give you everything

If morning is my darkest time
In the night I sometimes find
There is comfort without lie
I’ve been living with no hope
It was a shame to let it go
But it was drowning me so slow
I’ve never felt so far away
From the boy I used to be
And I wonder what he’d see
From the corner of some ship
He met me today

Can you tell me what it is you need?
‘Cause I’ve been trying, still I cannot see
These wasted moments brought me to my knees
I just wanna give you everything

In the letter that you wrote me last
There were words that burned to hear
And red lipstick on the mirror
You said loving me’s a great mistake
‘Cause I have never loved myself
And I am sorry if you felt
But maybe you could offer help
To someone like me

Can you tell me what it is you need?
‘Cause I’ve been trying, still I cannot see
These wasted moments brought me to my knees
I just wanna give you everything
