When I feel too far away
From where I want to be
There's nothing left for me

And when I feel too close to breathe
Like a baby cutting teeth
In you a fire I lay

'Cause when its more than I can take
You pushed and pulled to break
A sucker for a saint... in your eyes

Criticism comes in ways
To numbering our days
That only you can save me

Is anybody even there
That doesn't just pretend to care
This time I need to know
Are you there?

Does anybody think they can
Begin to even understand
This time I need to know
Are you there?

It's the lie that we believe
A truth that we conceive
That lies inside of me

And when I leave it all behind
Something hypnotized
The moment that it's my line

Is anybody even there
That doesn't just pretend to care
This time I need to know
Are you there?

Does anybody think they can
Begin to even understand
This time I need to know
Are you...

Is anybody even there
That doesn't just pretend to care
This time I need to know
Are you there?

Does anybody think they can
Begin to even understand
This time I need to know
Are you there?
