I'm only a man, I have a good heart
I've been trying hard, been cursed from the start
I've been given mountains, nowhere to depart
Oh, I will cross that bridge with my eyes closed
I've been keeping strong, I've been movin' on
I've been cryin' out, still holding on
I've been swimming oceans with you where I've gone
Can only hold my breath for oh so long

Seems like faith's the only way to touch Heaven
It feels like grace can replace what's inside
I see you move in the wing just beyond my own closed door
I'll let you in, come inside, please come inside

I've been keepin' strong
I've been moving on
I'm a mess, and I guess, I'm cleaning up so good
I've been holding on

I turn my back to you, you turn me around
For months I've been lost, I'm not slowing down
Been playing in the fire, no water around
Oh I am consumed by what's away from you
Tell me to my face, tell me I'm wrong
Say the way you catch me, am I too gone?
In a world full of liars, there's truth in our song
I can hold my breath for oh so long

I'm a mess, but I guess, I'm cleaning up so good
I'll let you in, come inside, please come inside

I've been keepin' strong
I've been moving on
I'm a mess, and I guess, I'm cleaning up so good
I've been holding on [x2]

I'm only a man, I have a good heart (I've been keepin' strong)
I've been trying hard, been cursed from the start (I've been moving on) [x2]

I'm a mess, and I guess, I'm cleaning up so good
I've been holding on.
