lyrics

Take me away from these bright lights, they make shadows on my skin.
Expose the emptiness inside that gathers all within.
If I could I’d crawl into a hole to hide myself,
but then there would be nothing where this flesh and bone had fallen!

Hold me, ‘cause I can’t keep these tears from falling
Hold me, ‘cause I can’t find my way home
Hold me, and if it seems that I should fall away, won’t you please bring me in.

I’ve got a hole so deep inside, it’s like a bottomless pit.
I tried everything that I could find, but nothing seems to fit.
Can you take my hand and lead me far away from this mess?
Is there anywhere that I can go and not be nothing?

Hold me, ‘cause I can’t keep these tears from falling
Hold me, ‘cause I can’t find my way home
Hold me, and if it seems that I should fall away, won’t you please bring me in.
