lifeblood: songs: lyrics: holler


come and sit down at this table
where we've shared all of our food
where we've argued til we're nothing
but a shell of what we knew

let me count the ways i love you
and the ways i hurt you too
let me hang there in the balance
i would die to be anew

cause it's true
most of the time
i'm treading water
with no sign
keeping my head just
high enough to holler
if you believe
then i believe too

and it's true i'm scared of dying
i let it shape me through and through
i don't take much stock in heaven
if i can't make this right with you

so let me reckon with my blessings
let me find my way to you
cause i ain't afraid of living
i never say i got nothing to lose

cause it's true
most of the time
i'm treading water
with no sign
keeping my head just
high enough to holler
if you believe
then i believe too
