faithOh I've lost my hopeMore Like This
Can't find my faith with my head in the clouds
What's the reason to hold on?
I won't be a saint…
Try and place me, tell me what I am
Promise there's no pressure…
Then why must I be "perfect?"
Pure comes in many forms
Pure Innocence, Pure Faith,
Pure Evil, Pure Pain…
My heart bleeds, I'm not alone,
Is that perfection?
Unanswered prayers, lead to concrete angels
Babies crying in the dark,
Not sure where their mothers are
Daddy's never make it home from work
Momma lets herself go, home is lost
A hand across the face
It doesn't make me stronger, it just gives reason
To be cold, to have holes, to never let go…
I should be used to broken promises by now
That's what you're based on
And the voice of woman is lost
Through disappointment and neglect
Direct disregard of my questions,
Dishonesty has us going in circles
Why does pain get us to heaven?
Why should I respect, for the loss the world suffers?
I've lost my hope,
I can't stick around for fear of being smothered
