Shackled


Vertical Horizon - Shackled 



For so long my life's been sewn up tight inside your hold
And it leaves me there without a place to call my own 

I know now what shadows can see
There's no point in running 'less you run with me
It's half the distance through the open door
Before you cut me down
Again
Let me introduce you to the end 


And I feel the cold wind blowing beneath my wings
It always leads me back to suffering
But I will soar until the wind whips me down
Leaves me beaten on unholy ground again 

So tired now of paying my dues
I start out strong but then I always lose
It's half the distance before you leave me behind
It's such a waste of time 


'Cause my shackles
You won't be
And my rapture
You won't believe
And deep inside you will bleed for me 

So here I slave inside of a broken dream
Forever holding on to splitting seams
So take your piece and leave me alone to die
I don't need you to keep my faith alive 

I know now what trouble can be
And why it follows me so easily
It's half the distance through the open door
Before you shut me down
Again
Let me introduce you to the end 


Though you know you care 


And my laughter
You won't hear
The faster 
I disappear
And time will burn your eyes to tears
