The Word Alive – Quit While You're Ahead lyrics

Just as fast as you found the waves have crashed down around me.
I'm still searching but out of place. I need your help, I need your grace.
When will this battle end or does it ever end at all.
And we fear what we can't seem to understand.
We believe what we allow ourselves, our selfish lies in the end.
We believe what we allow ourselves, our selfish lies in the end.

But is this the end.
I feel like the word is getting the best of me and it's getting hard to breathe.
I've never been afraid I've never been ashamed.
So let it be. I pray my God you keep me.
If this is my last chance to believe, I'll believe.

The threat of losing all I know is gone.
You can't judge me! You can't save me!
You can't love me so quite while you're ahead!
You've betrayed me now let me go. You've betrayed me I'm letting you know...
The things that you love will consume you.
The fire swallows you whole if you can't make your choice.

But is this the end.
I feel like the world is getting the best of me and it's getting hard to breathe.
I've never been afraid I've never been ashamed.
So let it be. I pray my God you keep me.
If this is my last chance to believe, I'll believe.

Listen to what your heart tells you before it's too late.
It's crying out to love, but is the risk to great?
