  • I want to believe these words are more than letters to me
    I want to believe a covenant to stand the battlefield of time
    Many times I've written words holding me to stay pure
    Where is the truth in these motions, afterwards feeling motionless?
    Motionless, I keep breaking my promises
    I keep breaking my word to you and I
    I keep breaking my promises
    Once again, I'm letting you down

    How must a broken man fix his brokenness if he's not the answer?
    I can't do this on my own, on my own
    I need you here, I need you here, I need you here
    Each and every day that passes leaves me worse off than before
    Many times I've sworn
    I wouldn't look back, never look back

    Instead of fighting to be a man I just want to know who I am
    Fighting with my fists leaves me bloody and broken almost every single time,
    So I'm going at it with your strength instead of mine
    Please be my strength
    So I'm going at it with your strength instead of mine
    Please be my strength

    I've carried this burden long enough
    With a heart of conviction, I've betrayed us both
    I have to forfeit
    The shame is too much to take
    Take the lead and reign over me
    Reign reign reign over me
    Reign reign reign over me

    You knew you'd find me here
    It took me losing sight to count it all as lost
    For me to see that I'm finally found
    Count it all as lost
    There's so much more to gain
    Count it all as lost
    Take the lead and reign over me Writer/s: BRENT GERALD RAMBLER, DUSTIN CHAD DAVIDSON, JOHN BENJAMIN BRUBAKER, MATTHEW WILSON GREINER, WILLIAM JACOB LUHRS
