lyrics

There's a lot of things that should make me want to smile
And even though I know I should, I haven't felt that for awhile
And I'm tired of living this way of feeling nothing
And I just want to get away and start being something

But she's my love, keeps me from falling
I needed her, and she heard me calling
Might be awhile 'til I learn to smile again,
but if anyone can get me there, it's her

Save me from myself and all these thoughts that keep me from thinking
Pull me from this hole I've filled with life's mundanity, because I'm sinking
And I'm tired of living this way of feeling nothing
And I just want to get away and start being something
