Sometimes it's embarrassing to talk to you
To hold a conversation with the only one who sees right through
This version of myself
I try to hide behind
I'll bury my face because my disgrace will leave me terrified

And sometimes i'm so thankful for your loyalty
Your love regardless of the mistakes i make will spoil me
My confidence is, in a sense, a gift you've given me
And i'm satisfied to realize you're all i'll ever need

You looked into my life
And never stopped
And you're thinking all my thoughts
Are so simple but so beautiful
And you recite my words right back to me
Before i even speak
You let me know, i am understood

And sometimes i spend my time
Just trying to escape
I work so hard, so desperately, in an attempt to create space
Cause i want distance from the utmost important thing i know
I see your love, then turn my back, and beg for you to go

You looked into my life
And never stopped
And you're thinking all my thoughts
Are so simple but so beautiful
And you recite my words right back to me
Before i even speak
You let me know, i am understood

You're the only one who understands
Completely
You're the only one who knows me yet still loves completely

And sometimes the place i'm at is at a loss for words
If i think of something worthy, i know that it's already yours
And through the times i've faded and you've outlined me again
You've just patiently waited, to bring me back and then

You looked into my life
And never stopped
And you're thinking all my thoughts
Are so simple but so beautiful
And you recite my words right back to me
Before i even speak
You let me know, i am understood

The noise has broken my defense
Let me embrace salvaction
Your voice has broken my defense
Let me embrace salvation

The noise has broken my defense
Let me embrace salvaction
Your voice has broken my defense
Let me embrace salvation

The noise has broken my defense
Let me embrace salvaction
Your voice has broken my defense
Let me embrace salvation

Your voice has broken my defense
Let me embrace salvation
Let me embrace
Let me embrace salvation
