Lyrics

Attention

Written By: To The Steadfast

Leave them as they are.
Leave this city to me.
We won’t talk with subtle walks.
Implosions go by unnoticed.

Give me some attention so I can have composure.
And repeatedly show you these feelings aren’t over.

No one’s left at all.
Fighting til the death and tearing down the walls.
Still we won’t talk with subtle walks.
Explosions went by unnoticed.

So come on lie to me if it makes you feel alright.
Come on lie to me if you really want the fight.
I wish someone would have told me that this would be oh so lonely. (lie to me)
I wish someone would have told me that your insides are so ugly. (lie to me)
I wish someone would have told me that it’s hard to only be me. (I promise I’ll listen, I promise I’ll leave)
I wish someone would have told me that you never wanted me. (I promise I’ll listen, I promise I’ll leave)

More Than Saved

Written By: To The Steadfast

When will we see more than a sunrise?
When will we see more than ourselves?
When will we touch the hands that took all our pain on himself?
When will the birds sing more than sad songs?
Will we hear the rivers sing along?
When will we give in? When will we stop to listen?
(stop and listen to you)

We’ve all heard the story of the boy who grew up alone.
He had his fair share of drugs and drinking and now all he has is this mindless thinking.
And he doesn’t see the purple in the lilacs or smell them in the cool spring breezes.
When will his soul go missin? When will he stop to listen?
(stop and listen to you)

We’ve all heard the story of the girl, lacking attention from her father.
But she found it other ways through selling her body, now she’s just another.
Pill addicted, self-inflicted pain just to feel better.
When will she quit bein his sin? When will she stop to listen?
(stop and listen to you)

When will they be saved?
When will they feel real?
Well, I’ve been more than saved,
I’ve been healed.

We’ve all heard the story of the perfect family who had a secret.
Behind their blue eyes and smiles, they could lie for miles.
Daddy just wants to be accepted and mommy’s too scared to be rejected.
Another affair will it fit in? When will they stop to listen?
(stop and listen to you)

When will they be saved?
When will they feel real?
Well, I’ve been more than saved,
I’ve been healed.

When will we see more than a sunrise?
When will we see more than ourselves?
