Lyrics

Fallen

Written By: Grace Woodroofe

Where are you running to?
When you have no destination?
All I do is dream
Of the places I can’t go

I close myself off
Mirror the victim
The numbness in my hands
Makes it hard to reach out to you

There’s an eerie carpet in the sky
The layer cake of fog is black and so am I
Casts its heavy eyes down on me
So distracted by the technology

I’m fallen
Sorrow came and kissed me on the mouth
Sometimes I feel like giving in (no more pain)
And when I walk the line
I’ll be as broken as you but my heart will keep beating
I’m a criminal with no crime
Doing my time

I keep thinking I hear birds singing
But it’s actually the damn phone ringing
Draw an opaque box on my skin
Why does it take so much to start a conversation?

I know I’m my own worst enemy
Everyday’s the same – I dissect my body
Pick myself apart till I’m done
But it’s not just me – I’m not the only one

I walk in my room and close the door
Hear my mother cry through the cracks in the floor
Feel so bad for running off
But it’s the way I am – I close myself off

I’m fallen
Sorrow came and kissed me on the mouth
Sometimes I feel like giving in (no more pain)
And when I walk the line
I’ll be as broken as you but my heart will keep beating
I’m a criminal with no crime
Doing my time

I’m fallen
Sorrow came and kissed me on the mouth
Sometimes I feel like giving in (no more pain)
And when I walk the line
I’ll be as broken as you but my heart will keep beating
I’m a criminal with no crime
Doing my time

Open The Door

Written By: Grace Woodroofe

Only if you
Come and open the door
I promise to explain myself
Though I don't know what for
And you don't have to say
How you feel about me now
Just want to show you that I've changed
Want to see if you'll forgive me somehow

(Still) My heart is breaking
My memory's shaking
Can't figure out what it was
That I said
(But) I think that if you would
Come back to me
Then the whole wide world
Would see

Been so confused
Seems I've lost my mind
Thought it over so long now
Lost track of time
(But) Only time will tell
What these scars conceal
But you won't even let me in
To show you how I feel

(And) My heart is breaking
My memory's shaking
Can't figure out what it was
That I said
(But) I think that if you would
Come back to me
Then the whole wide world
Would see
(That you belong to me)

It's so cold out here
Why are you acting like this?
I'm holding something in my hand
That you can't dismiss
And if you won't come out
And talk to me now
I'll throw it through your window
Hope it'll show you somehow

(That) My heart is breaking
My memory's shaking
Can't figure out what it was
That I said
(But) I think that if you would
Come back to me
Then the whole wide world
Would see
