Comfort me from a world where no one cares
Where the words turn into cages and memories cut like glass
I closed my eyes on you, I put the blames on myself, baby, yeah
The weight is on my shoulders, I'll throw my heart in the wishing well

I've got to face and tame my demons
It's hard to start over again, yeah, I know
Through trials and tribulations
Salvation's like a long lost friend

I'll take back all of the hurt
For your love I've taken for granted
I'll do anything to change
If that's what it takes, yeah

No use in pretending, ain't no pride in it all
A cure for independence is when you're standing in the cold
Have I used, have I used my chances, have my bridges all been burned
Give me a sign of inspiration to find a stone that's left unturned

I see a distant promise of Eden
Lifting my spirits so high
If I can break out of the circle
I'm gonna kiss that carousel goodbye, bye

I'll take back all of the hurt
For your love I've taken for granted
I'll do anything to change
If that's what it takes, that's what it takes

I've got to see a promise of Eden
Lifting my spirits so high
If I can break out of the circle
I'm gonna kiss that carousel, gonna kiss it goodbye

I'll take back all of the hurt
For your love I've taken for granted
And I'll do anything to change, baby, oh
If that's what it takes, yeah

And take back all of the hurt
For your love I've taken for granted
I'll do anything to change
If that's what it takes, if that's what it takes
