lyrics

Child as I was
I made myself believe in things that I could never reach
All that I had
Was locked inside my heart and I could never let it leave
When I woke up from the dream
Wiping out a fairytale I wrote myself
Knowing it would never be a thing
Child as I was
I was asking for a miracle or something else
Like “can't you see my loneliness
Make it real”

Days turned to weeks
I would keep on wishing, waiting, hoping for the best
Just willing to keep
Keep this ship from sinking at the place where it was built
So afraid of letting go
Knowing everything I said it would have been in vain
Didn't want to throw it all away
But weeks turned to months
And I couldn't hold it up, so I just left it there
Shattered by a stupid prayer
There you go

Now please can anybody pray for me
While I'm asleep
Cause I don't really miss the way it feels
I've lost the will to be one of those sheep
To feel ignored by someone you believe in, what's the point

Child as I was
I had my little world, now it's a ruin, left behind
And I felt a little lost
When suddenly those questions I'd suppressed came back to life
You don't know what's happening when we die
It's just ideas and ideologies
Concepts that were written long ago
“Love thy neighbor as thyself”
This I'll keep in my heart but I'm just tired of all the rest

So please can anybody pray for me
While I'm asleep
Cause I don't really miss the way it feels
I've lost the will to be one of those sheep
To feel ignored by someone you believe in, what's the point

And I'm not gonna tell anyone how to live their lives
As I'm barely getting by myself, and I
I see now that sometimes purpose is hard to find
Without divine placebo strength from a bible verse when you are really in need
See when you're desperate you cling to every straw that you see
I fell in love back then, it ripped my heart out while she
Had got the whole world in her hands.
