Come Up For Air

You don't cope at all
You turn your mirror to face the wall
You say that things have changed
Nothing's different
Just rearranged

There was a time your hollow face seemed so alive
There was a fire in your heart, fire in your eyes

Oh, why are you on your knees
You need more than prayer
If you cannot breathe
Then come up for air

And you don't leave your room
You tell yourself again and again it's much too soon
You say your walls are bare
But you can't blame him for what's not there

There was a time when you did everything on your own
And you were happier when you were on your own

So, why are you on your knees
You need more than a prayer
If you cannot breathe
Then come up for air

So, why are you on your knees
You need more than a prayer
If you cannot breathe
Then come up for air

Why are you on your knees
You need more than a prayer
If you cannot breathe
Then come up for air
