I've been running such a long time
I've been hiding from the truth
I've been better, been broken, been buried
Now I'm death proof, death proof

And I've been known to take a big chance
But I can't waste another shot at redemption
Oh I'm ready, don't let me go passing through the wrong hands
The wrong hands

My confidence is in crisis mode
Your fingertips, well they know the code

Release me
Take another piece of me and there won't be another left
Come on release me, release me
Take another piece of me and there won't be another left
Unless you let go
Unless you let go

I've been waiting for the sun to shine
Another winter ends, the winter's starting over
We met beside a landmine, waiting for the wind to blow

Now I'm in trouble with these friends of mine
But change was in my blood, I lost my sense of direction
I drag us to the bright light
Life was like a TV show

My fuse is set, I'm pressing go
Your match is lit but it's burning slow

Release me
Take another piece of me and there won't be another left
Come on release me, release me
Take another piece of me and there won't be another left
Unless you let go

There will be nothing but sand falling down
Through your fingers to the ground below
Through your fingers to the ground below

Yeah, I've been running
I've been running
I've been running such a long time

Release me
Take another piece of me and there won't be another left
Come on release me, release me
Take another piece of me and there won't be another left
Unless you let go
Unless you let go
