lyrics

There’s not much in these walls that I could bare to give away,
But the walls themselves, I don’t want, I see them every day,
And I’d like to give you more, than the rubble from my thunder,
Please settle with my well intentioned love.

And I can not do the basics, or complete some simple task,
But I can stand beside you when you ask.

And oh, my love, the world won’t compare,
With the life you’ve created in your dreams.
Please understand, I haven’t yet awoken,
I’m only slightly broken at the seams,
Please Mend Me.

This house is getting colder and my words are getting thick.
The words I use, I don’t want, I crave another pick,
Of better things to tell you, stories that are true
Instead I write a list of things to do.

And oh, my dear, there’s only what’s on offer,
But ask and I promise you’ll receive.
Please understand, I haven’t yet awoken,
I’m only slightly broken at the seams.
Please Mend Me.

This house has just collapsed,
And I’ve just lost some ground.
There’ll never be a perfect, whenever I’m involved,
But I can stand beside you in the cold.

And I can not do the basics, or complete some simple task,
But I can stand beside you when you ask.

And oh, my love, the world won’t compare,
With the life you’ve created in your dreams.
Please understand, I haven’t yet awoken,
I’m only slightly broken at the seams,
Please Mend Me.
Oh, my dear, there’s only what’s on offer,
But ask and I promise you’ll receive.
Please understand, I haven’t yet awoken,
I’m only slightly broken at the seams.
Please Mend Me.
