  • Standing here on this cold ground
    Tears falling down in the dirt
    This world keeps spinning round and round but
    You're lying still in the dirt

    Don't wanna swim in this darkness
    Drown in a whiskey sea
    But there's no making sense of the senseless while this
    Pain is killing me

    There's not a stone in my heart I've left unturned
    Not a piece of my soul that I ain't searched
    The only answer I found for all this hurt
    Is there ain't not answer here on earth

    I ain't the best of believers
    Ain't at the front of the church
    I've read the words of the teacher but I
    Still struggle with what it's all worth cause

    There's not a stone in my heart I've left unturned
    Not a piece of my soul that I ain't searched
    The only answer I found for all this hurt
    Is there ain't not answer here on earth

    I wish that I could be stronger
    I wanna have that kind of faith
    But even if I did, I still wonder 'cause
    Nothing would change

    You're gone, you're gone, you're gone, you're gone, you're gone
    'Cause you're gone, you're gone, you're gone, you're gone, you're gone
    Please help me believe
    I'm on my knees
    Help me believe

    There's not a stone in my heart I've left unturned
    Not a piece of my soul that I ain't searched
    The only answer I found for all this hurt
    Is there ain't not answers here on earth
    Down here on earth
    There's no answers here on earth
