Say Anything

if i ever say anything at all  
i'd say watch for the fall  
if i knew anything at all  
i knew it'd be that easy  
afterall  
 
hanging from the same tree  
buried six feet below  
the only way to be free  
is letting go of the halo  
 
if i ever say anything you'd hear  
i'd let you know i'm sorry  
i gave you something to fear  
if you'd know anything of me  
know that i wish you the best  
and the love, you couldn't find here  
 
handcuffs and a rosary  
no keys and a checklist  
the only way to be free  
is letting go of the halo  
 
eventually they'll see
i never stopped to see
who was trailing behind
 
eventually they'll see
i didn't need them
they need me
 
and if i ever said anything at all  
it's love was all i ever wanted and all  
the lack of understanding is all  
i could pull from the ashes, as they fall
