Memphis May Fire – The Sinner lyrics

[Verse 1]
Digging a hole that I can't get out of.
Deeper and deeper, below the surface
To find that there's nothing there,
Where do I go from here?
Give me something that I can feel!
Back and forth here we go again,
What will it take to keep it together?

[Pre-Chorus]
What will it take to keep it together?
What will it take? What will it take?!
What will it take to keep it together?
I've never felt so empty!

[Chorus]
Keep me close, keep me close,
Keep my head above water.
I need to hear your voice,
I can't do this on my own.

[Verse 2]
Beneath the sun I am rotting,
Just like the ones that came before me.
I cannot deny my own walk has become a crawl.
I've never felt so,
I've never felt so lost!

I know,
I could never run far enough
To escape your love (to escape your love),
So why do I keep running?
Now the chaos is all around me!
Show me the light at the end of the tunnel.
I need you to save me from myself,
Give me something I can feel!

[Chorus]
Keep me close, keep me close,
Keep my head above water.
I need to hear your voice,
I can't do this on my own (I can't do this on my own).
Keep me close, keep me close,
(Keep my head above water)
I can't do this on my own.
No!

[Hook]
Take all my guilt, take all my pride,
I want to know you sincerely.
I'm on my knees, take all of me,
I want to feel you here with me,
Feel you here with me!

[Bridge]
Take all my guilt, take all my pride,
I want to feel you here with me!

[Chorus]
Keep me close, keep me close,
Keep my head above water.
I need to hear your voice,
I can't do this on my own (I can't do this on my own)
Keep me close, keep me close,
(Keep my head above water)
I can't do this on my own,
No!

    This song is really beautiful like yes we feel this way, it hurts, we get ourselves into trouble. We can have our "vices". Sometimes we even run from god without realizing it. But the only thing that can really get us through this life is god. Our vices cannot help us, "we cant do this on our own". God is the only one who really can help. This is a cry out to god to save him from himself and it is my prayer as well. For god to "take all of my guilt and pride" because "i want to know him sincerely" and not have my sins in the way. Love this band. I love you matty.
