Where am I? Where are you?
There's so much time so little to do
We're busy doing nothing cause it's vanity we prize
You can't see nothing cause you can't see through your eyes
They're covered with a film, you're blinded by yourself
You're the one to blame but you pretend it's someone else

Life could you be a little softer to me
Life could you be more gentle to me
Softer, softer, softer
Softer to me

I'm still alive, that much is true
I've never lied, well, I guess I've told a few
There's nothing to see because I brought nothing to show
The conversation got too deep, I shrug and tell you I don't know
This world can get so hard, this world can be so cruel
Sometimes I fall apart I feel just like a useless tool

Life could you be a little softer to me
Life could you be a more gentle to me
Yeah I know, this is a selfish plea
Because Christ sacrificed his flesh
On the cross for me

But this world is hard, it's cruel and I wish it could be
Softer, softer, softer
Softer to me

(Softer to me)

    Yeah I know
    This is a selfish plea,
    Because Christ sacrificed
    His flesh on the cross for me.
    But this world is hard,
    It's cruel and I wish it could be...
    Softer.. Softer.. Softer..

    I love this song..

    General Commentwhen I first heard this song, I wasn't even sure it was Matt singing. We never really get to hear his voice like this. I really think this is their most beautiful song, that most people can relate to.
