lyrics

You are whole
I am the sum of all the things
That I don't know and everything between;
A love that I lost, the faith that it costs me
And all of my plans tangled up in strangers' hands
Well, I sang about a heart. I thought how better intentions
Got up and got out while I prayed for a change
If I ran away from my pride, could you look me in the eyes and say
"Stay by my side, cause I'm better than I was before
These seasons left me wanting more. This time I promise that I'll get it right?"
You are heat
I am the water crashing at your feet
While we battle for control of
What my mother taught me was, a soul
But no one showed me how to hold out of arms reach
Now, I'm choking on uncertainty while we sing about this feeling
Keep anxiously repeating each line after line while you wait for my calls
If I ran away from my pride, could you look me in the eyes and say
"Stay by my side, cause I'm better than I was before
These seasons left me wanting more. This time I promise that I'll get it right?"
You are the fire in my voice when I sing
You are the empty space at the center of everything
You are the person that I swore that I could be. Oh, woah
If I could just lift this heaviness from inside of me
If I ran away from my pride, could you look me in the eyes and say
"Stay by my side, cause I'm better than I was before
These seasons left me wanting more. This time I promise that I'll get it right?"
