lyrics

TAKE THIS BROKEN MAN, FIX HIM IF YOU CAN,
TAKE THOSE EMPTY PROMISES AND BURN THEM IN THE FIRE,
TAKE THIS SINKING SHIP, AND GUIDE IT TO THE SAND,
MY HANDS ARE TIED, MOUTH IS DRY, JUST GUIDE ME BACK TO LAND.

IT'S BEEN A LONG, LONG TIME COMING YOU KNOW,
IT WAS SO FAR OUT THAT I HAD TO GO,
TO MAKE THE MAGIC, CAST THE SPELL, I HAD TO LEAVE HEAVEN FOR HELL

CHORUS

IF I SAW RED, THEN YOU WOULD SEE BLUE,
THE CANVAS FADED AND I JUST SAW YOU,
THE BED YOU MADE, WHERE YOU NOW LIE, FOR SOMEONE ELSE WHO'S WILLING TO TRY

CHORUS

TAKE THOSE BROKEN PROMISES, AND TELL ME THAT THEY'RE LIES,
TAKE THOSE EMPTY WORDS AND LOOK INTO MY EYES,
YOU SAID IT WAS FOREVER WHEN YOU HELD ME IN YOUR ARMS,
FOREVER IS NOW NEVER, BUT I GAVE INTO THOSE CHARMS (X2)
