lyrics

I have been this way for forever
Yeah always waiting on your honest reply
What more can I give than my heart, my come and my cry

You didn’t get this far all on your own
You didn’t get this far by leaving home
You didn’t get this far by avoiding my calls

So why can’t you open up your heart
Is being honest all that hard
You have no reason to be scared
Or under prepared

All that I can hear is singing
Sometimes I think I’d rather hear your disgust
At the way that you think you’ve been treated since you rose from the dust

You didn’t get this far all on your own
You didn’t get this far being all alone
You didn’t get this far by pretending I’m dead

So why can’t you open up your heart
Is being honest all that hard
You have no reason to be scared
Or under prepared

You’re telling me lies every single day
Think you’re keeping the peace
You’re only paving the way
For a bitter day
You think I should suffer all over again
Are you my enemy or friend
What you want now is what you’ll get in the end

So why can’t you open up your heart
Is being honest all that hard
You have no reason to be scared

So you’re free to run away from here
Down to the depths I’ll still be near
A simple no is all I need
Honestly
