A Covenant of Thorns

A Covenant of Thorns - Shell Of A Saint

rate me

Here I am the one that you adore

You give it all and more

But I'm to wrapped up in myself

Here I am the one you love to hate

Whatever you give I'll take

And push aside what gets in my way

It seems I'm always

Looking in from the outside

I try to keep it straight

But I feel it falling apart

It seems I'm always

Look out from the inside

I try to hold on tight

But I feel it slipping away

Here I am an empty man no pride

Eyes opened wide

Ashamed of the things that I've become

Here I am a shell of a saint that right

I'd try for more but why

I'd just end up with the same mistakes

It seems I'm always

Looking in from the outside

I try to keep it straight

But I feel it falling apart

It seems I'm always

Look out from the inside

I try to hold on tight

But I feel it slipping away

It seems I spend my time

Looking at the wrong side

I see it in my head

And I want to tear it away

It seems there is no way

To get to the upside

I've given what I can

And I feel I'm dragging you down

I am the one that left you there with nothing

I am the one that took it all away

I am the one that left you standing broken

I am the one that stole your dreams away

I am the one that left you feeling empty

I am the one that handed you the blame

I am the one that took it all for granted

I am the one that threw it all way

Things keep getting in the way

It should have been someone else
