One day to wonder what's bothering me -
(You said it)
I'm just the half of this - that just won't see -
(Believe it)
If I am wishing I am hoping as well
(Sometimes I)
I tell you clearly
But it's hard to tell
Someone will watch me with an eager eye -
(But I'm not)
I'm not even here, to even try
If the rain stops calling, calling my name
Well, I'm still in the thick of it and bearing the shame
(Deliver me)
Oh, no - you don't deliver in me
(Deliver me)
Oh, no - you don't deliver in me
(Deliver me)
Oh, no - you don't deliver in me, but one day
You'll wake up and then you'll see
Some times are hard, some times they drag
Well, I can see your face - you've seen the half of this
Maybe, I'm naming all the changes too much
(But see you), you never leave it if you have to touch
(And I will) always be waiting with a happy smile
But the smile is just a laughing
Killer - laugh-a-while
Don't know what I'm doing here
Don't know if I'm sane
But I swear if I'm feeling this -
I'm feeling the pain
(Deliver me)
Oh, no - you don't deliver in me
(Deliver me)Oh, no - you don't deliver in me
(Deliver me)Oh, no - you don't deliver in me, but one day
You'll wake up and then you'll see
And I can't be your standards
Wish you away
No, I can't be all this much
See you still have too much to say
Some skies are darkening and call out loud
Well, I'm the good side of you and I'm still proud
To be waiting for lightness when you stray
Well I'm sure that I hear him
He's slipping away
(Deliver me)
Oh, no - you don't deliver in me
(Deliver me)
Oh, no - you don't deliver in me
(Deliver me)
Oh, no - you don't deliver in me, but one day
You'll wake up and then you'll see
