lyrics

My cards are on the table
I’ve got nothing up my sleeve
Thought I was on to something big
But didn’t know who to believe
I always thought I’d go down fighting
Now I’m back where I began
Now I’m reaching out to you girl
Won’t you come and take my hand

If Hell’s for the unholy
And Heaven’s for the forgiven
It makes this long and lonely life
That much harder for the living
God knows I’ve made mistakes
Things are quite the way we planned
Now I’m reaching out to you girl
Won’t you come and take my hand

Known exactly what I wanted
Known just what I had to say
But then sat alone in silence
Watched it all just slip away
Prisoner of my indecision
Seems it’s always been that way
You know I’ve wasted so much time
I just can’t wait another day

I tried so hard but in the end
I didn’t know where to begin
It seems with every breath I take
I shed another layer of skin
Not expecting any answers
I just hope you understand’
Now I’m reaching out to you girl
Won’t you come and take my hand

Known exactly what I wanted
Known just what I had to say
But then sat alone in silence
Watched it all just slip away
Prisoner of my indecision
Seems it’s always been that way
You know I’ve wasted so much time
I just can’t wait another day

My cards are on the table
I’ve got nothing up my sleeve
Thought I was on to something big
But didn’t know who to believe
I always thought I’d go down fighting
Now I’m back where I began
Now I’m reaching out to you girl
Won’t you come and take my hand
