lyrics

Hey there, whatchya got there?
I've seen a lot here
It looks real nice, it looks real beautiful
You've got your rocks to lean on
You've got your shelter over
And when you cry it's in the cleanest hands
and when you lie you just pray he'll forgive

So take your lines and your passages
and tuck them safe where you like to keep them
'Cause I've been given the lines and passages
and nothin' seems to be workin'
Nothin's bringing me to my knees

I want what you have
I want what carries you home
You sleep so quiet, restful, sound as a stone
I want what you have
I wanna know that I am safe in the end
I wanna know, I wanna know.

So here I lay now, in a bed with no faith
The cloudy sky breaks,
is this a sign I'm dealing with?
I'm suffocating on the lack of trust that I breathe
I'm losing sleep now, I'm slipping farther with ease
Oh you have no idea.
(Oh I want it)

I want what you have
I want what carries you home
You sleep so quiet, restful, sound as a stone
I want what you have
I wanna know that I am safe in the end
I wanna know, I wanna know.

You sleep so soundly while I am wrecking my arms
building questions on tight ropes and ledges.
