No one ever gave up on you x3
Like others wanted us to
No one ever gave up on you
I know how strong you really are
No one ever gave up on you
(background) I know how strong your love is
Through the haze I know your there
No one ever gave up on you
(background) I know how strong your love is
I know how strong you really are
Like others wanted us to
(background) I know how strong your love is

If there was a way, for me
To open up the main frame and re link shorted circuitry
I would, I would, and I would do anything.

To know what you were thinking with those Demons chewing away at your brain.
Had to say on those days strangled by anxiety and physical pain.
Id even climb an icy peak to the heavens
Just To figure out what was living inside of your beautiful head.

And this will, not be another song about complaining.
This will, not be a song about being frustrated.
You're still, one of the only reasons that I live.
And You're still, sitting next to me as I write.

Even with shorted circuits you're still perfect. You're still perfect x8

We were little children all we wanted was to be between your arms
and as an adult all i want to do is be between your arms.
But switching roles isn't easy, seeing your mind and body grieving
feeling for some sort of relief from the endless dreaming
and there's no fucking reason, for you to ever be scared.
Our family's here to walk you through the illusions and nightmares.
I know that you will love me, yes after you forget my name
and I know you will love me, beyond the flesh beyond the grave
and I know that there's nothing more precious than a grandmother's smile
when i'm lost and I need a single moment of comfort in my life
it's like, some sort of miracle happening before my utterly tired eyes
to see this white haired angel hovering over me telling to me to survive

Even with shorted circuits you're still perfect. You're still perfect x8

i will always remember those sick days when i was home from school
with you alone watching soap opera dramas unfold
you'd wrap me tight in blankets til my skin forgot how to be cold
and fed me soup until the fever dropped.

So now i'll gladly take the shirt off of my crooked back to keep you warm.
I'll gladly sacrifice my days of youth for you it's not a chore.
It's something special. Galvie(?) and I know how lucky we are
to have you here we don't care if it's hard.

Although it gets harder than we can imagine some days .
We will never stray too far away.
And we'll put you in front of anything
nothing is relevant no we'll never burden you with the blame.

even if i'm on tour, in a country that I've never seen before.
When i close my eyes you’re the first sight that i see
under night skies i can feel you breath

And i still see, the original fighter inside of you wandering
hiding behind those cataracts and attacks of nerves that'll never calm with Xanax.
I know you're in there wrapped within cobwebs of memory
screaming for attention but you can't find your way out.
All i wanna do is help you find a way around.


Even with shorted circuits you're still perfect. You're still perfect x24
