lyrics

Some days it knocks me off my feet
The cold blowing of the wind
And I'm shivering inside my boots
Wishing that you were here

And my mother says I sound worried every day
And it's nights like these that are keeping me awake
No strength to get out of bed
This weight is far too heavy on my chest
So I pray for rest

And I'm so far from home
Wherever that tends to be
Where I'm pierced by your little stares
Aching bones weigh me down

And my mother says I sound worried every day
But it's nights like these that are keeping me awake
No strength to get out of bed
This weight is far too heavy on my chest
So I pray for rest

You ask if I might be depressed

I wish I was invincible
and my skin was as thick as my head
I wish I was more fixable
that my heart was stronger than this

I wish my skin was as thick as my head
I wish that I had strength to get out of bed
I wish I wasn't so anxious like this
