Verse 1

You're far away from where I stand,

With my wretched fate in my hands.

I'm so terrified, brother,

How will I face this alone?

Yes, I know you've got my back,

I can just reach for my phone.

But you're out there chasing your dreams.

You don't need to hear my heart's screams.

Chorus

For you, I'll keep myself strong,

For you, I'll make myself brave.

For you, I'll defy death and

Crawl out of this rotting grave.

Chorus

For you, I'll keep myself strong,

For you, I'll make myself brave.

For you, I'll defy death and

Crawl out of this rotting grave.

Verse 2

You'll never again have to say,

You're disappointed in me, nay.

I won't let you down this time.

And one day I'll make you proud.

I'll make this pain leave my heart,

It's been too noisy a crowd.

You're not here now, but I promise,

I'll be okay, I'll find my bliss.

Chorus

For you, I'll keep myself strong,

For you, I'll make myself brave.

For you, I'll defy death and

Crawl out of this rotting grave.

Chorus

For you, I'll keep myself strong,

For you, I'll make myself brave.

For you, I'll defy death and

Crawl out of this rotting grave.

Bridge

I owe you my life, and I'll make it a beautiful one.

I hope to find you still standing with me the day I'm done.

And I can never thank you enough

For showing me life when I lost love,

For taking the burden off my chest,

For being the very best.

Everything I am is because of you, brother.

Chorus

And for you, I'll keep myself strong,

For you, I'll make myself brave.

For you, I'll defy death and

Crawl out of this rotting grave.

Chorus

For you, I'll keep myself strong,

For you, I'll make myself brave.

For you, I'll defy death and

Crawl out of this rotting grave.
