lyrics

Well it seems we're here again my friend. With you on the ground feeling sorry for yourself and me extending my hand. You tried to fix another broken heart, when you had your own to mend. So what's it gonna be? You gonna lie there and die, or get up on your feet and take control of your life? I guess we'll see...

They say idle hands are the Devil's plaything. Just like your idle mind is where he's dancing.
My feet feel heavy. It's as if I'm sinking. These four walls are closing in on me, but I won't let this house of bones become my grave. Through its not so easy, once you've lost your footing. The hardest part is losing everything and being left with nothing, but keep your head up kid. Keep fighting. This isn't the end. Keep moving. I know she was your everything, but she was just the beginning.

Only you could bring me to my feet.
Only you could give me reason to sing.
Only you could make me believe.
Without you I'm left idling.

Only you could bring me to my knees.
Only you could give me reason to breathe.
Only you could make my heart beat.
Without you I'm left idling.

So sick of just idling!

So pick yourself up off the ground and get yourself moving. Let this music build your momentum. Let these words be your motivation.
We never said it'd be easy. We never promised anything, but I promise you this. She was just the beginning.

Only you could bring me to my knees.
Only you could give me reason to breathe.
Only you could make my heart beat.
Without you I'm left idling.

ONLY YOU COULD BRING ME TO MY FEET
ONLY YOU COULD GIVE ME REASON TO SING.
ONLY YOU COULD MAKE ME BELIEVE.
WITHOUT YOU I'M LEFT IDLING.

ONLY YOU COULD (×2)
Without you I'm left idling
ONLY YOU COULD (×2)
Without you!

Your love was the light that guided me.
Your love was the wind beneath my wings.
When I held you close I felt the warmth of the sun, but like iccurus I flew too close and now my wings have come undone in the flames of our love.

And as I plummet to the earth below. From the heavens above. I take one last look at the sky. I hold my breath and close my eyes and give thanks to have known your light. You will always have a place in my idle mind.

They say idle hands are the Devil's plaything. Just like your idle mind is where he's dancing.
My feet feel heavy. It's as if I'm sinking. These four walls are closing b in on me, but I won't let this house of bones become my grave.
