I've been down, I've been out
I did it all on my own
Seems growing up
Didn't take long
I feel strange, I feel good
I feel better with you
You've changed, you should
Cause I think I did too

Made my mistakes
I did a few things right
But it will take what it will take
Baby, that's life
You cannot change what you do not own
Everybody knows
But if you live deep and love strong
You get pretty damn close

It moves fast and it scares me
I close my eyes, oh but I still see

I'm fading in and out
What are you supposed to do save me know
From all of this danger you don't know how
And I'll find my way out
When I'm in the red
Listening to strangers inside my head
The darkening angels beneath the bed
I still see everything you said
Crimson in red

I shake and I smile
Cause you said
Baby girl, it may take a while, but take the good from the bad
And never minds are never sure, so never leave them wanting more
What are you waiting for
How you love is who you are

I dive in and I sink in
And I find new colors to think in

I'm fading in and out
What are you supposed to do save me know
From all of this danger you don't know how
And I'll find my way out
When I'm in the red
Listening to strangers inside my head
The darkening angels beneath the bed
I still see everything you said
Crimson in red

In the distance is a line defining where I've been
Rhe state I'm in
And ever since it began to slip from my two hands I've been
Taunting fires, touching wires, been believing liars
Everything they said
Painted in red
Painted in red
Painted in red

I am fading in and out
What are you gonna do save me know
From all of this danger you don't know how
I'll find my way out
When I'm in the red
Listening to strangers inside my head
The darkening angels beneath the bed
I still see what you said

What are you gonna do
No way for you to save me
What are you gonna do
Everything that you gave me
Is painted in red
