I've been down, I've been out
I did it all on my own
Seems growing up
Didn't take long

I feel strange, I feel good
I feel better with you
You've changed, you should
'Cause I think I did too

I made my mistakes
I did a few things right
But it will take what it will take
And baby, that's life

You cannot change what you do not own
Everybody knows
But if you live deep and love strong
You get pretty damn close

It moves fast and it scares me
I close my eyes, oh, but I still see

I'm fading in and out
What are you supposed to do? Save me now
From all of this danger you don't know, how
And I'll find my way out when I'm in the red

Listening to strangers inside my head
The darkening angels beneath the bed
I still see everything you said, crimson in red

I shake and I smile 'cause you said
Baby girl, it may take a while
But take the good from the bad
And never minds are never sure
So never leave them wanting more

What are you waiting for?
How you love is who you are
I dive in and I sink in
I find new colors to think in

I'm fading in and out
What are you supposed to do? Save me know
From all of this danger you don't know, how
And I'll find my way out when I'm in the red

Listening to strangers inside my head
The darkening angels beneath the bed
I still see everything you said, crimson in red

In the distance is a line defining where I've been
The state I'm in and ever since
It began to slip from my two hands I've been
Taunting fires, touching wires, been believing liars
Everything they said, painted in red
Painted in red, painted in red

I am fading in and out
What are you gonna do? Save me know
From all of this danger you don't know, how
I'll find my way out when I'm in the red

Listening to strangers inside my head
Darkening angels beneath the bed
I still see what you said

What are you gonna do?
No way for you to save me
What are you gonna do?
Everything that you gave me
Is painted in red
