lyrics

There is no honest way to say
"I was wrapped in those shadows, but I just walked away"
It bleeds in through your seams
And no one gets out clean
When you walked through the door
A choir of ghosts filled my head and said, "Leave"

[Chorus]
But I am still here, covering my ears
Screaming, "What a bastard, I lost some important years"
Dressing reckless as wild
And lost in the eyes of a spoiled child

And no amount of trying makes amends
For the time that you left me drowning in that ditch
No amount of trying rights your sins
But you tried and tried and tried and tried
And tried and tried again

[Chorus]

You can take my heart, I trust my hands
To drag me through this trial and trance
If it's home or the beast, I will take my chances
With what growls beneath the dirt and plants

I am still here

Covering my ears
Screaming, "What a bastard, I lost some important years"
Dressing reckless as wild
And lost in the eyes of a spoiled child
