lyrics

I was never able to look you in the eye.
Someone called me brave; somebody lied.
It’s no good trying to be good, it just hurts more every day.

If this were easy, It would be over.
If this were simple, We’d already be done.
When the whole world rests upon your shoulders
The best that you can do will never be enough.

I don’t want to be strong,
I don’t want to be smart.
I don’t want pity or prayers for my sinful heart.
It’s no fair trying to be fair, when the wicked wear angel wings.
