lyrics

I dream in black and white
Silhouettes of who I used to be
The mirror tells me lies
Ghosts and skeletons stare back at me

You used to wake at night
Listening to see if I still breathe
Through slamming doors and screams
You watched me slip away from everything

Tell me you want me
I’ll say I’m sorry
Say you’ll never let me go
I’ve waited so long
I’ll tell the truth
If you can make me whole

I grasp at bones and shrinking spaces
As they disappear from sight
You ask if I’m okay
The words get lost inside another fight

Tell me you want me
I’ll say I’m sorry
Say you’ll never let me go
I’ve waited so long
I’ll tell the truth
If you can make me whole

Tell me you want me
I know you thought
You lost me long ago
I’ve waited so long
I’ll come clean
If you can make me whole

Tell me you want me
I’ll say I’m sorry
Say you’ll never let me go
I’ve waited so long
I’ll tell the truth
If you can make me whole

Tell me you want me
I know you thought
You lost me long ago
I’ve waited so long
I’ll come come clean
If you can make me whole

Tell me you love me
I’ll say I’m sorry
Say you’ll never let me go
Say you’ll forgive me
Cause I don’t know
If I can ever be whole

Tell me you want me
I know you thought
You lost me long ago
I’ve waited so long
I will tell the truth
Just take me home
