Your open palm is home enough to me.

You storm my seas, ravage me, keep me calm.

My anchor, my strength, you beat me down.

I try to drown, you keep up just enough to survive.

.

I don't know why you keep me around.

I don't know why I'm still in this town.

.

Tear me apart.

Take all my hope.

Take everything I'll ever be

And everything I know I will become.

So, take my mind,

And take my heart.

I'll stand my ground and stay around

And pray one day I'll be deep underground.

.

Your open palm closes and I'm all alone.

I can't wake up from the dream that life has become.

My reality, you break apart.

I'm keeping up with everyone. You still don't care.

.

I don't know why you try to break my heart.

I don't know why I still not strong enough.

.

Tear me apart.

Take all I'm worth.

Take everything I'll ever be

And everything I know I won't become.

So, take my strength,

And take my pride.

I'll strip myself to blood and bone

And realize I'll always be alone.

.

Tear me apart.

Lay me to rest.

Take everything I'll ever be

And everything I hope I will become.

So, take my life,

And take my heart.

I'll prove myself and make believe

That you believe that I am worth enough.

.

You'll never know why I say goodbye.

You'll never hear me say goodnight. Never again.

.

Tear me apart.

Take all my hope.

Take everything I'll ever be

And everything I know I will become.

So, take my mind,

And take my heart.

I'll strip myself to blood and bone

And realize I'm better off alone.

.

Tear me apart.

Lay me to rest.

Take everything I'll ever be

And everything I hope I will become.

So, take my life,

And take my heart.

I'll prove myself and make believe

That you believe that I am worth enough.
