I'm falling apart again
And I can't find a way to make amends
And I'm looking in both directions
But it's make believe, it's all pretend

So...
She'd some light on me
And hold me up in disbelief
And she'd some light on me
And tell me something that I'll believe in

It's innocence within the maze
But I have chosen the wrong way
I'm still getting over who I was
There's no sense of trust, there's no definition of love

So...
She'd some light on me
And hold me up in disbelief
And she'd some light on me
And tell me something that I'll believe in

I know now, it's not who you are
It's who you know
And I see clearly now, which way to go
I remember the way I fell from above
And I recall the way I was

So...
She'd some light on me
And hold me up in disbelief
And she'd some light on me
And tell me something that I'll believe in
She'd some light on me
And hold me up in disbelief
And she'd some light on me
And tell me something that I'll believe
Tell me something that I'll...
Tell me something that I'll believe
Tell me something that I'll believe
Something I'll believe

    It is talking about waking up to the reality of the world, shedding some light on all that you believe and understanding, like it or not, that you need contacts in the world to advance in life. The lyrics are very powerful, just like all other songs written by Brent Smith.
