  • Lyrics
  • I went out looking for the answers and never left my town.

    I'm no good at understanding, but I'm good at standing ground.
    And when I asked a corner preacher I couldn't hear him for my youth.
    Some people get religion some people get the truth.
    I never get the truth, I never get the truth.

    I know the darkness falls on you. And it's just a point of view
    When you're outside looking in you belong to someone and when
    You feel like giving in and the coming of the end, like your
    Heart can break in two, someone loves you.

    I lay this suitcase on my chest so I can feel somebody's weight.
    And I lay you to rest just to feel a give and take?
    I got a new interpretation and it's a better point of view, you
    Were looking for a landslide I was looking out for you, I was
    Looking out for you, someone's looking out for you

    I know the darkness falls on you.
    And it's just a point of view
    When you're outside looking in you belong to someone and when
    You feel like giving in and the coming of the end,
    Like your heart can break in two, someone loves you.

    I am afraid of crossing lines.
    I am afraid of flying blind.
    Afraid of inquiring minds.
    Afraid of being left behind.

    I close my eyes I think of you, I take a step I think of you,
    I catch my breath I think of you, I cannot rest I think of you

    My one and only wrecking ball, and you're cutting through my walls.
    When you're outside looking in you belong to someone and
    When you feel like giving in and the coming of the end,
    Like your heart could break in two, someone loves you.Writer/s: BRANDI M. CARLILE, PHILLIP JOHN HANSEROTH, TIMOTHY JAY HANSEROTH
