I wish I could cross my arms and cross your mind
'Cause I believe you'd unfold your paper heart and wear it on your sleeve
All my life I wish I broke mirrors instead of promises
'Cause all I see is a shattered conscience staring right back at me

I wish I had covered all my tracks completely
'Cause I'm so afraid, is that the light at the far end of the tunnel, or just the train?
Lift your arms, only Heaven knows where the danger grows
And it's safe to say there's a bright light up ahead, and help is on the way

(Help is on the way)
(Help is on the way)
(Help is on the way)
Help is on the way

I forget the last time I felt brave
I just recall insecurity
'Cause it came down like a tidal wave
And sorrow swept over me

Depression, please cut to the chase and cut a long story short
Oh, please be done, how much longer can this drama afford to run
Fate looks sharp, severs all my ties and breaks whatever doesn't bend
But sadly then all my heavy hopes just pull me back down again

(Back down again)
(Back down again)
(Back down again)
(Back down again)
(Back down again)
(Back down again)
(Back down again)


I forget the last time I felt brave
I just recall insecurity
'Cause it came down like a tidal wave
And sorrow swept over me

Then I was given grace and love
I was blind but now I can see
'Cause I found a new hope from above
And courage swept over me

It hurts just to wake up whenever you're wearing thin
Alone on the outside, so tired of looking in
The end is uncertain and I've never been so afraid
But I don't need a telescope to see that there's hope
And that makes me feel brave
