Braverman

I don’t know how it started
But I know it’s too damn late and too damn cold
To come ‘a’ knockin’ on your door
The feeling’s so familiar
I’ve become well acquainted with it all
I’m just constantly at war
If you could only understand
If I could lay my heavy head upon your shoulder
But you’re well-enough alone
So I let you control me til it’s over

When the walls begin to whisper
Evil in my ear
They tell me to surrender
I wanna disappear
They keep the light that feeds me
From coming underneath my door
I thought I was a braver man
But now I ain’t so sure

I’m followed by a shadow
As I wander and I stumble through the dark
They’re ever closer to my heel
When I forget to leave the light on
It’s so easy to get lost inside these thoughts
And all the sorrow that I feel
If you could only understand
If you would just extend your hands and pull me closer
But you’re well-enough alone
And you can carry all your own
Girl, you’re a soldier

When the walls begin to whisper
Evil in my ear
They tell me to surrender
I wanna disappear
They keep the light that feeds me
From coming underneath my door
I thought I was a braver man
But now I ain’t so sure
