lyrics

Shutting gates...let me in...

You understand better than anyone,
So how could you expect me to go on?
When there is nothing left for me,
Just empty seeds and a shell of who I used to be,
Downhearted and frustrated on most days,
All hope I had is stripped away,

So what would you have me do?
I’ve done everything,
I already know what they’re gonna say,
I see it in their face.

“A moment of weakness…a selfish act…”
Proof no one really listens,
I took matters into my own hands,
…Please understand.

Each painful breath feels like a kick in the chest,
How could you expect me to go on like this?
Yet they’ll have the nerve to call me “selfish”,
“A moment of weakness” a moment of weakness?
This could be the bravest thing I’ll ever do,
You have to understand, you have to,
If there’s a plan, I don’t see it,
If you showed me love, I didn’t feel it,
These words aren’t for them, they’re all too late,
Please don’t deny me your gates…

So what would have me do?
Already know what they're gonna say,
I see it in their face.

“A moment of weakness…a selfish act…”
Proof no one really listens,
So I took matters into my own hands,
…Please understand…please let me in.
