Casey Stratton – You Were My Religion lyrics

I know you say I never promised much
You know that I am on the run
And if you find yourself feeling out of touch
You've stared too long at the sun

And I so young then
When we first met so long ago
I had a lot to learn about you

You were my religion for a long time
Then one day I slowly opened my eyes

I let you cover me
My first big mistake
I never felt so free
As when you owned me
When I was twenty-two
I didn't understand
That sometimes two makes a mess of me and you

I'm almost sick of trying to wade through this
I should be fine and over it
And if I think about for too long
I turn myself back around

A never-ending chain
Wrapped around my pain
And I have a lot to learn about everything

You were my religion for a long time
But then one day I slowly opened my eyes

Only two more days
Only five more years
Only a hundred ways to keep me here
Only one goodbye
Only claiming space
Only bluer skies can take your place
Hey hear me, hear me
I can speak
Got my voice back from the deep
