Nothing here to hold you

Learning to breathe
as walls close in around you
Learning to see
the things that surround you
Once you believed
in every word he sold you
there’s nothing here to hold you

Learning to fly
while things fall down around you
You’re wasting your time
With the people that surround you
Don’t ask me why,
But once you’re on your own
You will soon realize –
It’s true what I told you

Real love is all
It takes to walk away from comfort
Real pain to know;
Nothing scares you now
Real life will show the naked truth
In what I told you:
There’s nothing here to hold you

Learning to hide
from memories you’ve built a life on
They’ll wonder why
the sudden change of mind?
But just passing time
no longer is an option
– you must re-organize,
and feed the fire in your belly

Real love is all
it took to bring you back from sleep
Real pain to know
you are still alive
Real life has shown
the truth in everything I told you
There’s nothing here to hold you

You have come to despise
everyone who adores you
so you wave your goodbyes
to everything that bores you
There’s a whole world outside,
and you know you shouldn’t buy it
but you just have to try it
– cuz there’s nothing here to hold you

Real love was all
it took to raise you from the dead
Real pain to know
you’re still inside your head
Real life is all
– to see the truth in what I told you:
There’s nothing here to hold you.

Learning to fly
A pair of broken wings
but still you’re willing to try
cuz there’s nothing here to hold you
