  • I need you to hear me
    I want you to feel this
    It should be clear as fear and plain as day
    I'm not going to bend now
    You're not gonna break me
    You'll never be hard enough to scratch my face

    I wanted to feel you
    I tried to belong here
    Well all of the ghosts and faded headlines
    But I couldn't read you
    No you wouldn't let me
    You always pull away
    From the ones you can't defy

    Are you tired
    Of holding up the sky?
    Of teaching birds to fly?
    You've done it all your life
    Oh baby are you sad
    When you see the sun?
    'Cause then you're not the brightest one
    When all is said and done
    And honey all is said and done

    I need to move through this
    The waiting just kills me
    Whatever you do is on you,
    I'm washed clean
    No don't be alarmed now
    The story's ending
    These aren't open arms,
    They're just waving you away

    Are you tired
    Of holding up the sky?
    Of teaching birds to fly?
    You've done it all your life
    Oh baby are you sad
    When you see the sun?
    You've never been the brightest one
    When all is said and done
    And honey all is said and done
    All is said and done

    I need you to hear me
    I want you to feel this
    It should be clear as fear and plain as day

    Are you tired
    Of holding up the sky?
    Of teaching birds to fly?
    You've done it all your life
    Oh baby are you sad
    When you see the sun?
    'Cause then you're not the brightest one
    When all is said and done

    Oh are you tired
    Of running for your life?
    When there's no one left behind,
    Just the chaos in your mind
    Oh baby are you sad
    Each day you greet the sun?
    You know you're not the brightest one
    When all is said and done
    All is said and done Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
