Let Me Walk

I let my hopes up, my guard down
Now I’m lying here on the ground
Got hit before I even left these walls
And I’m so careful not to fall

And you wait for me to stand
For my feet to feel steady in the sand
Start to take a step and then
You knock me back down again

Can’t you pick me up and let me walk
And when there’s nothing left to do
It will have to be quietly
But maybe I’ll walk to you
And you may have to find me
‘Cause I’ll be too scared to knock
I just need a gentle, loving hand
Please let me walk

I understand people must go
That there’s so much that I don’t know
I have to trust that you know best
But trusting at all is always a test


I don’t know if you can sympathize
With trying to see through blurry eyes
But they don’t clear up when they crying stops
I don’t hate you and I’m not mad
Just tired, I hope you know that
Feel like I’m trying to float on a sinking rock
