"Please,  Please, Please, Please"

I deny, depressed and wry
And guess at weights, my legs drag on
To stay the night, to fight, to die
It's hard I said, come hold my hand
Come hold my head against your knee

Baby please, please, please, please
I found the nerve but I lost the need
Baby please, please, please, please
My grasp exceeds the past I dreamed
But I had it, oh I had it
But I grew weak, but I grew weak, but I grew weak

But I never looked away
No I never turned my head away from you
But I never looked away
No I never turned my head away from you

I abide by rules and lies
I tried the fire and I tried the ice
My smiles are tied now to rows of rye
And it burns me alive from the inside
And I try to cry just to prove to myself that I'm still alive

Baby please, please, please, please
I need your breath and I need your eyes
Baby please, please, please, please
To bleed, to sweat, to scream, to cry
But I had it, oh I had it
But I grew weak, but I grew weak, but I grew weak

But I never looked away
No I never turned my head away from you
But I never looked away
No I never turned my head away from you

Baby please, please, please, please
I need your breath and I need your eyes
Baby please, please, please, please
Please, please, please, please
