lyrics

I am afraid you are mistaken.
I'm just a fool, who's only good at taking
I'll open up now for you to see
This empty shell that's left of me.

From my earliest days right down the line
I've made mistakes almost all the time.
I toyed with rebellion, and cursed the sky
But the wind and the storm left me alive.

I'll rip the pages from your book,
Chew them up and swallow while you look.
I'll consume every noun and verb
I'll digest every single word.

I'm a tin man with no heart
And I'm prone to fall apart.
You pulled the curtain back with style.
And you always said it best
"What really matters is in your chest,
So run - don't walk - the extra mile."

The world was black and white before the rain
Then the whole thing bled into a dirty gray.
We waited for sunshine and watched the sky
With a hope and a prayer that we'd get by.

I'll take the words right from your mouth,
Chew them up and swallow my self doubt.
I'll consume every noun and verb.
I'll digest every single word.

I'm a scarecrow with no brain
And the thought drives me insane.
You walked be side me down the road.
And it's like you always said,
It's not just what's in your head
So stand beside and share the load.
