You don't jump straight into boiling water
But they're slowly turning up the heat
So that you won't see all the gray colors
That are fading a masterpiece

All that he made you to be...
Did you forget the fervor that you once had?

When did you think you could do this on your own
When you know you're never alone?
You can't do this yourself
Just let him in and you'll begin
To find the life, the life that you've been searching for
Just open up the door and let him in

Tell me, what's the point of oxygen
If you never breathe it?
What's the point of lighting a candle
If no one can see it?

All that he made you to be...
Did you forget the fervor that you once had?

When did you think you could do this on your own
When you know you're never alone?
You can't do this yourself
Just let him in and you'll begin
To find the life, the life that you've been searching for
Just open up the door and let him in
Oh, let him in

Where's the fervor you once had?
You've got to get it back
Just give him all your heart and you will see...

All that he made you to be...
Did you forget the fervor that you once had?

When did you think you could do this on your own
When you know you're never alone?
You can't do this yourself
Just let him in and you'll begin
To find the life, the life that you've been searching for
Just open up the door and let him in
Oh, let him in
