I've cried like a child
In the arms of a storm
Whose feet can't pretend to be brave any more
Days under sheets, and smoke under skies
And rooms lit to burn down our lives
As we break this, one day at a time

I will crawl on my hands
And collapse at the sea
And I'll scream to the water "you have mended me"
All that I want
And all that I need
Is to fall just as fast as I please
With no one to cry over me

I have bled like a soldier
In the books that they showed us
When they told us that no one is safe
And I've pleaded with God
Saying "don't you be long,
I don't know how much more I can take."

And all the good people
who think that they know
the story in full
well, nobody knows
just me and the moon and these lies that I've told
I think I've got them sold

I will crawl on my hands
And collapse at the sea
And I'll scream to the water "you have mended me"
All that I want
I think all that I need
Is to fall just as fast as I please
With no one to cry over me

The hearts that I've wrecked
'cause I stay out too late
And then hide in my shame 'til their eyes start to break
Through the walls of my chest
And this bed that I've made
I spoil the things that I've saved
And I'll sleep till I dream them away
I will crawl on my hands
And collapse at the sea
And I'll scream to the water "you have mended me"
All that I want
I think all that I need
Is to fall just as fast as I please
With no one to cry over me
With no one to cry over me.
