LYRICS

CROWDED ROOMS

Loneliness, do you ever leave easy?
My remedy, I’m right here don’t you see me? / Got me so lonely
Do the walls you build bring you any safety?
Why do crowded rooms feel the most empty? / Got me so lonely

Hey, I see you / You’re just standing there
Like you got no clue / But I know that you care

Won’t you, won’t you, won’t you please
Won’t you, won’t you, won’t you please
Won’t you, won’t you please just walk with me through these fading years?

Do the voices ever stop talking on the TV?
I turn them up when it feels like you’re leaving / Got me so lonely
Do the walls I build bring me any safety?
Why do crowded rooms feel the most empty? / Got me so empty too

Hey, isn’t it a shame / The way we set ourselves apart
When we both bleed the same / Have a little heart

(Whoa, whoa, got me so lonely / Whoa, whoa, got me so empty)

I’m so sick of crowded rooms / I’m so sick of these crowded rooms
Broken folks hiding behind their perfect costumes, listen

I DON’T MIND

I don’t mind your teary red eyes / Cause I’ve been getting sick of all the dead eyes

I found your note on the table tonight / Saying you had no more hope in this life / so I set off to prove it untrue / I drove through the night till I found you / & you were standing there on that cold, grey ledge / crying out feeling shame & regret / the falling tears make you feel like a fool / as they’re falling down like rain into a pool / you say you’re sorry don’t want me to worry / but no one stops cause they’re all in a hurry / so won’t you please just hold on tight / to his love that brings us life

Everything once black & white now feels so grey / compassion passes over but I don’t know what to say / but he’s saying now

I don’t mind your teary red eyes / Cause I’ve been getting sick of all the dead eyes / So come on now we’re gonna shed these lies / Just gotta let it out, let rain your red skies

In this broken world shaped like a cannonball / we’re all trying to mend the cracks of the fall / sooner or later we’re bound to break, aren’t we all? / we’re on our knees in the dark left to crawl / well these breaks are more than we can cast / the pain, the loss, & the haunting past / so carrying the weight of the age old fall / we’re crying out “Lord, please don’t stall”

I don’t mind you bleeding & I don’t mind you torn / cause only in our falling can new life be born / so he’s singing out

I don’t mind, I don’t mind, I hope you find that I don’t mind / I don’t mind when you’re breaking up inside

Well, maybe love, you wouldn’t feel so numb / if you could only see how far we’ve come…

NO MATTER WHAT

I’m at the end of myself / Putting me on the shelf / Lord, I’ve come to You for help / It’s only in Your arms I’m held

I will sing / I will grieve / No matter what / My heart will be on my sleeve

I know you’ve broken my chains / But I keep fighting to keep the remains / Even though I fall every day / And I can’t find the words to pray

It’s the mountains you’ve gotta climb / That will always be the steepest / And it’s the hearts that you hold tight / That will cut yours the deepest
