lyrics

I saw you from a distance
You caught me by surprise
Suddenly frozen for a moment in time
It was exactly how I imagined it all in my mind
Everything stopped and we had only just begun
Was I asleep?

I never should have given away my all
If I had only opened my eyes to care
We're in trouble, we're in a maze
But as the years add up
I'm just to numb to escape my pain

I gave up everything
And you drug me through this hell
Enough to kill someone
If they don't kill them self
You said you trusted your faith
But now you don't feel the same somehow (I see it)
You justify excuses
You just see what you want to
Oooh, you're not making sense
I don't know you baby

I never should have given away my all
If I had only opened my eyes to care
We're in trouble, we're in a maze
But as the years add up
I'm just to numb to escape my pain
Just show me what to prove, I'll make it okay
But don't expect the changes in just one day
We're mistaken, we're in a maze
But as the years add up
I'm just to numb to escape my pain

And all along
You were scared to believe
Too afraid
So all along
Was I sound asleep?

(This one's crying out for freedom)
And all along
You were scared to believe
(This one's screaming please don't let me go)
Too afraid
(This one's crying out for freedom)
So all along
Was I sound asleep?
(This one's screaming please don't let me go)
I'll take it from here
I don't know you baby

I never should have given away my all
If I had only opened my eyes to care
We're in trouble, we're in a maze
But as the years add up
I'm just to numb to escape my pain
Just show me what to prove, I'll make it okay
But don't expect the changes in just one day
We're mistaken, we're in a maze
But as the years add up
I'm just to numb to escape my pain
I never should have given away my all
If I had only opened my eyes to care
We're in trouble, we're in a maze
But as the years add up
I'm just to numb to escape my pain

I don't know you baby
I never should have given away my all
You just see what you want to
I don't know you baby
