Never reaching what I want to reach
Never being who I want to be
Blaming me when I fall and fail
All my dreams splintering under my fingernails
Under my fingernails

Im empty, lonely and accused, accused without a word
My fingernails are chipping down from clawing in the dirt
Im so lost, lost and confused, I threw it all away
How can I be beautiful when I am so afraid

Never reaching what I want to reach
Never being who I want to be
Blaming me when I fall and fail
All my dreams splintering under my fingernails
All my dreams out of reach under my fingernails

I watched it all slip through my hands, my brokenness revealed
Im so proud, Im so proud Im crying to be filled
Im killing, destroying the plague, thats killing me away
Ive got to live, Ive got to love like I am unafraid

Never reaching what I want to reach
Never being who I want to be
Blaming me when I fall and fail
All my dreams splintering under my fingernails

Never reaching what I want to reach
Never being who I want to be
Blaming me when I fall and fail
All my dreams splintering under my fingernails
All my dreams out of reach under my fingernails

Im wasting, wasting every moment
I want to be tasting, tasting every moment with you
Im suffering, Im bleeding, on my knees, whos going to save me?
Suffering, bleeding, save me from this pit of frailty

Never reaching what I want to reach
Never being who I want to be
Blaming me when I fall and fail
All my dreams splintering under my fingernails

Never reaching what I want to reach
Never being who I want to be
Blaming me when I fall and fail
All my dreams splintering under my fingernails
All my dreams out of reach under my fingernails

Never reaching me
