lyrics

I'm underground,
but I'm not dead nor buried.
I'm sleeping for a while.
I know that's not the news you wanna hear.

I'm not alone.
The second I reach out
somebody holds my hand
and pulls me from the six foot hole
you told me I deserved.

So say it one more time to my face,
say it if you dare.

You could draw my blood with just a word and I'd forgive you.
I promise I would overlook your flaws.
I told myself so many times "it's what's inside that counts,"
but I never found the flower beneath your thorns.

You justified the poison
dripping from your tongue
like it was medicine,
like I was so very sick
and your bile was my only cure.

But you lied.
You told me that I was someone
never worth fighting for.
I wonder how you'd cope if you could only see me now.

You wouldn't recognise me.

You could draw my blood with just a word and I'd forgive you.
I promise I would overlook your flaws.
I told myself so many times "it's what's inside that counts,"
but I never found the flower beneath your thorns.

I was hurt and I was bleeding.
All you did was salt the wounds
and salt my earth, 'cause
nothing I could grow was good enough for you.

It's taken me this long
and the road out is longer still.
But you can't drag me back.
You never can. You never will.

I'd like to take back what's mine,
but you're not worth my time.

You could draw my blood with just a word and I'd forgive you.
I promise I would overlook your flaws.
I told myself so many times "it's what's inside that counts,"
but I never found the flower beneath your thorns.
