Creed - Weathered lyrics
I lie awake on a long, dark night
I can't seem to tame my mind...
Slings and arrows are killing me inside
Maybe I can't accept the life that's mine, no
Maybe I can't accept the life that's mine
Simple livin' is my desperate cry
Been trading love with indifference
An' it suits me just fine...
I try to hold on but I'm calloused to the bone
Maybe that's why I feel alone, yeah
Maybe that's why I feel so alone... 'cause me,
I'm rusted and weathered, barely holdin' together
I'm covered w/ skin that peels & it just won't heal
...(repeat) ...No, it just won't heal, no, no, no
The sun shines and I can't avoid the light
I think I'm holdin' on to life too tight...
Ashes to ashes, and dust to dust
Sometimes I feel like giving up... yeah, I said,
Sometimes I feel like giving up... 'cause me,
[Chorus x2] ...It just won't heal, no
The day reminds me of you
The night hides your truth
The earth is a voice, speaking to you
Take all this pride, and leave it behind
'Cause one day it ends - One day we die
Believe what you will - That is your right
But I choose to win - I choose to fight...
To fight... 'Cause me,
[Chorus] / [Chorus (alt)] (minus "heal", into:)
...Covered with skin that peels & it just won't,
...Covered with skin that peels & it just won't heal
