I dig my heels into the dirt 'cause this one's gonna hurt
Won't let the waves wash me away, is what I always pray
In my heart I know you couldn't see in the dark
Or find your way through me
Now I'm alone, my hands are numb, how do I carry on?

And at the turn of the tide I feel this part of me die
Am I washed on your shore and barely alive?

Now I'm held hostage in my head with every word you said
God, all those lessons in my past
I spit them out so fast I see myself
With you I act so small, see myself with you I always crawl
So someone leave a raft for me, the water's getting deep

At the turn of the tide I feel this part of me die
Am I washed on your shore and barely alive?

Here I am in my insecurity
Here I am with my damaged dignity
Here I am, you're pulling me in too deep
Here I am

Here I am, I'm in the mercy seat
Here I am, running without my feet
Here I am, oh, what's come over me
Here I am

When I was melting in your hand, you didn't understand
You slip through me like grains of sand, you still don't understand
Overboard, I'm thrown out to see what you are and what I mean to me
But I will always have my dream where you can swim to me

At the turn of the tide I feel this part of me die
I've been on your shore before and it was no waste of time
Over my head and in my mind
Am I washed on your shore and barely alive?
Am I washed on your shore and barely alive?
