I had given up
I didn’t know who to trust
Oh oh
So I designed a shell
Kept me from heaven and hell
Oh oh
Yeah I have hit a low
Was all I let myself know, yeah
Yeah I had locked my heart
I was imprisoned by God

You found me dressed in black
Hiding where I put the past
Life would build up my heart, too busy
You took my hand in yours
You started breaking down my walls
And you covered my heart in kisses
I thought like cats mean by
Lose my tears and all my pride
Like you’ve broken my heart, must spill it
And then you cross my back
You broke my feet repeatedly
And you covered my heart in kisses

I was down for the count
Cause I was down, I was out
Oh oh
And I had lost it all
Cause I was scared I was doomed
And I took to the night
I'd given into the fight
Oh oh
And I slipped for the dawn
Yeah I felt like a dawn

You found me dressed in black
Hiding where I put the past
Life would build up my heart, too busy
You took my hand in yours
You started breaking down my walls
And you covered my heart in kisses
I thought like cats mean by
Lose my tears and all my pride
Like you’ve broken my heart, must spill it
And then you cross my back
You broke my feet repeatedly
And you covered my heart in kisses

I was hopeless
And more, getting war in the door from me
Yeah I was hiding
And you let the light in and now I see
And to dwell for the wound
Do what they couldn’t seem to
You set them free
Like a bottle of mist
And a child with a knife, with a mind of a key

You found me dressed in black
Hiding where I put the past
Life would build up my heart, too busy
You took my hand in yours
You started breaking all my walls
And you covered my heart in kisses
I thought like cats mean by
Lose my tears and all my pride
Like you’ve broken my heart, must spill it
And then you cross my back
You broke my feet repeatedly
