A little sleep, a little slumber

A little folding of the hands

Left you weak, left you hungry

When there’s supply you still demand

​You’re beginning to drag the ones you love

down

Will this phase ever end?

A thousand arms to hold you

But you won’t reach for any hands 

I don’t feel like I’m getting through to you

Let me paint this clear, life is short, my dear

See your mother here, her last painful year

I wish you only knew…

She stuck around for you

She stuck around for you

Maybe you should just fall

And leave the world and lose it all

And if that’s what you need

To finally see

I’ll be with you through it all

Bring on the pills, roll the dollar bill

Medicating will never heal

Relapse, rehab, repeat

Always thinking about the me, me, me

Self-destruct, spiral down

Until your want becomes your need

Please get up like I know you can

Or forever love the fall Cause

I don’t feel like I’m getting through to you

Let me paint this clear, life is short, my dear

See your mother here, her last painful year

I wish you only knew…

She stuck around for you

She stuck around for you

Maybe you should just fall

And leave the world and lose it all

And if that’s what you need

To finally see

I’ll be with you through it all

(I’ll be with you through it all)

I can’t stand to see you down

Strung out, off the wagon, and unwound

But steady, steady, Oh God,

I can’t bear to hear the sound

Of your body, body hitting the ground

She stuck around for you

(She stuck around for you)

She stuck around for you

Maybe you should just fall

Leave the world and lose it all

If that’s what you need

To finally see, she loved you through it all​

I’ll be with you through it all
