Something's got me down again
I feel the walls closing in
If you could only read my mind
Tell me what would you find?

Show me where it all began
Now could you help me understand?
And the toll it's taking, everyday I'm aching

Living in danger, I'm a hazard to myself
Why can't these problems belong to someone else?
I need an angel to protect me from myself
And take these burdens off my mind, ooh yeah

I wish I knew the words to say
To make it all go away
Even when it's plain to see
It's hard to believe

'Cuz when your heart's been broken
All you're hope's been stolen

Living in danger, I'm a hazard to myself
Why can't these problems belong to someone else?
I need an angel to protect me from myself
And take these burdens off my mind

I'm running on faith, I really don't know
If it's too late or which way to go
It's a matter of time, will I ever know
Oh, before I lose control? Yeah

'Cuz when your heart's been broken
All you're hope's been stolen

Living in danger, I'm a hazard to myself
Why can't these problems belong to someone else?
I need an angel to protect me from myself
And take these burdens off my mind, yeah, off my mind, oh, oh
