lyrics

You're just nineteen,
Your world has been so kind enough to shelter all you've viewed,
Just take your time,
To learn your lines,
The words you're fed keep opinions well-subdued,
But you're not the one to blame,
And your friends all say the same,
'Cos living through conditioned circumstance and tailored outlook is bound to impact,

I'm sure it seems I've only gone and found you here,
But I know where you've been,
'Cos those footsteps trace back to the days your smile outweighed,
The heartache in between,
There's no other way,
For you to feel you're justified,
But some other day you'll learn,
In fact, He answered when you cried,

The ceiling that,
You're screaming at,
Shows swirls so reminiscent of your mind,
There's no way out,
You're forced to shout,
'Cos no one hears a word unless you're crying,
Try to lift that heavy head,
And vacate that empty bed,
'Cos you already know the one who can absorb the burden,
And wipe those tears from your face,

I'm sure it seems I've only gone and found you here,
But I know where you've been,
'Cos those footsteps trace back to the days your smile outweighed,
The heartache in between,
There's no other way,
For you to feel you're justified,
But some other day you'll learn,
In fact, He answered when you cried,

Now I don't want to be,
The one who claims to see,
Objectively that which you understand deep down,
'Cos one day everything,
You learned to constantly hold in,
Might stop the one you've been waiting for,
From meaning more,
Than you ever thought possible,

I'm sure it seems I've only gone and found you,

I'm sure it seems I've only gone and found you here,
But I know where you've been,
'Cos those footsteps trace back to the days your smile outweighed,
The heartache in between,
There's no other way,
For you to feel you're justified,
But some other day you'll learn,
In fact, He answered when you cried,
When tomorrow's hope nearly died,
Because He knows how hard you tried.
