(Lyrics)


I'll tell you flat out, it hurts so much to think of this
So from my thoughts I will exclude this very thing
That I hate more than everything is The way I'm powerless
To dictate my own moods

I've thrown away so many things that could've been much more
And I just pray my problems go away if they're ignored
But that's not the way it works, no that's not the way it works

When I go down, I go down hard
And I take everything I've learned, and teach myself some disregard
When I go down, It hurts to hit the bottom
And of the things that got me there, I think, if only I had fought them

If and when I can clear myself of this clouded mind
I'll watch myself settle down Into a place
Where peace can search me out and find that I'm so ready to be found

I've thrown away the hope I had in friendships
I've thrown away so many things that could have been much more
I've thrown away the secret to find an end to this
And I just pray ,y problems go away if they're ignored
But that's not the way it works, no that's not the way it works

Any control I thought I had just slips right through my hands
While my ever-present conscience shakes its head and reprimands me, reprimands me Then 
there I confess I'll blame all this on my selfishness
Yet you love me, and that consumes me
And I'll stand up again, and do so willingly

You give me hope, and hope it gives me life
You touch my heavy heart, and when you do you make it light
As I exhale I hear your voice And I answer you, though I hardly make a noise
And from my lips the words I choose to say
Seem pathetic, but it's fallen man's praise
Because I love you, Oh God, I love you
And life is now worth living if only because of you
And when they say I'm dead and gone it won't be further from the truth

When I go down, I life my eyes up to you
I won't look very far, 'Cause you'll be there
With open arms To lift me up again, to life me up again

great work, but i think at the chorus when u strum the chords, if u listen closely, it sounds like it should be a little different. but over all i give yooh a 5.
