lyrics

All I want you to know
Is that I've been here before
Stuck at the bottom
I've tasted the floor
Always the last in line, patiently waiting for my turn to shine
But it never comes

They say, what's the sun without a little rain?
You know they love to say
Anything to make you feel at ease
And not as worthless but...

If I gave you all I had, would it be enough?
All I ask is for a fighting chance.

I've lost too much sleep over things I can't change
And it's wearing me down
From the inside out
These tired eyes have seen brighter days
Sure, time will heal the wounds
But the scars remain.

For everyone to see a common ground for
The strong and the weak but the difference between
Dying on your feet and living on your knees

They say what's the sun without a little rain?
But it's been pouring for days
I've seen it wash away better men than me
But I still remain.

I gave you all I had.

I've lost too much sleep over things I can't change
And it's wearing me down
From the inside out
These tired eyes have seen brighter days
Sure, time will heal the wounds
But the scars remain.

I've been breaking my back, just scraping by
All on a whim and a preyer
That you will take me in
And hear me out.

Look me in the eyes.
It might just save me from burning out.

I've lost too much sleep over things I can't change
And it's wearing me down
From the inside out
These tired eyes have seen brighter days
Sure, time will heal the wounds
But the scars remain.

I've been breaking my back
Just scraping by
All on a whim and a preyer
That you will take me in
And hear me out.
