Take What's Left

I took what you gave me, destroyed it all
I had to lose everything to know that I was wrong
And now I see what was true all along
A void in me, now that everything is gone
 
Now that everything is gone
 
The emptiness can be a source of clarity
Taking away a way for us to hide, always revealing
No choice but to rebuild, no voice, no peace, no love, no home
Nothing left to hold, nothing left but hope
 
Take my broken frame
What still remains free from the chains, free from the chains
 
Nothing left to hold, nothing left but hope
Like hunting for prey that we don't even need to track
So easy to follow what's next, we are left with only one path, one path
No choice but to rebuild, no voice, no peace, no love, no home
Nothing left but hope
 
Take my broken frame
What still remains free from the chains, free from the chains
Take what's left in me, what's worth saving
No matter how much time it takes
 
From merely hope, we are brought back to life
 
From broken bones, we revive
Take what's left and create
Take what's left and then rebuild
 
You had every reason to give up on me
But you stood and waited when everyone ran away
 
I took your gifts, destroyed them all
And then lost everything to know that I was wrong
But you still carried me when you could barely walk
You reminded me I was never too far gone
 
Take my broken frame
What still remains free from the chains, free from the chains
Take what's left in me, what's worth saving
No matter how much time it takes
Take my broken frame
What still remains free from the chains, free from the chains
 
Take what's left
Take what's left and rebuild
 
Thanks!
