I’ve been taught how to talk to You Hold it together Make the bad look better Say all the words that I’m supposed to Bow my head say amen, yeah that’ll do Making every dead-end look like Heaven Like being okay is the way to reach You
But You’re not afraid of all the things I feel So why am I afraid of being real
You want my tears Every messy word Every scar and every fear You want all I have With no holding back When I’m hurt At my worst You meet me there ‘Cause You see the beauty In my broken prayers In my broken prayers
You don’t care if it ain’t poetry ‘Cause all of my edges They’re a little rough But that’s all I got to bring
‘Cause You’re not afraid of all the things I feel Don’t have to hide the scars that still aren’t healed
Mascara running down my face Desperate cry in a dark place You take me that way All of me
