Hercules

Album: The Blessed Unrest (2013)
  • I miss the days my mind would just rest quiet
    My imagination hadn't turned on me yet

    I used to let my words wax poetic

    But it melted a puddle at my feet now
    It is a calcifying crime, it's tragic
    I've turned to petrified past life baggage
    I want to disappear and just start over
    So here we are

    And I'll breathe again

    'Cause I have sent for a warrior

    From on my knees, make me a Hercules
    I was meant to be a warrior please
    Make me a Hercules

    I've lost a grip on where I started from

    I wish I'd thought ahead and left a few crumbs
    I'm on the hunt for who I've not yet become
    But I'd settle for little equilibrium

    There is a war inside my heart gone silent
    Both sides dissatisfied and somewhat violent
    The issue I have now begun to see

    I am the only lonely casualty

    This is not the end though

    'Cause I have sent for a warrior

    From on my knees, make me a Hercules
    I was meant to be a warrior please
    Make me a Hercules

    'Cause I have sent for a warrior

    From on my knees, make me a Hercules
    I was meant to be a warrior please
    Make me a Hercules

    This is my darkest hour

    A long road has lead me out here

    But I only need turn around to face the light
    And decide flight or fight

    'Cause I have sent for a warrior

    From on my knees, make me a Hercules
    I was meant to be a warrior please

    'Cause I have sent for a warrior

    From on my knees, make me a Hercules
    I was meant to be a warrior please
    Make me a Hercules Writer/s: SARA BAREILLES
