Regrets and Repair

They say live a life of no regrets
Take a breath and pass the test of time
Kid you’re gonna be just fine
But I’m looking back on such a mess
That if I stare I’ll stay here petrified
In the ruins of my life

They never told me just how easy it would be
To find myself consumed with all this longing left in me

So burn me down
I know that I deserve this
The hurt behind the verses
I can’t hold out
I’m weary of this burden
I don’t wanna be this person anymore

I thought all was for the taking
Didn’t care who I was breaking just to find
A new way to feel alive
And escape the pain I hated
So I threw my cares away like they were lies
But they’re breaking me this time

I’m hollow and so desperate
The lie of life with no regrets is through
But I wish it weren’t true
For these failures I’m a veteran
Now I know much better than you do 
No, you never had a clue 

I heard about a way to find new life in me
But finding this forgiveness is just too hard to believe

So burn me down
I know that I deserve this
The hurt behind the verses
I can’t hold out
I’m weary of this burden
I don’t wanna be this person now
So burn me down
I know that I deserve this
The hurt behind the verses
I can’t hold out
I’m weary of this burden
I don’t wanna be this person anymore

You said I just have to cry out and You’ll be there
And not even my brokenness is lost beyond repair

So burn me down
I’m weary of this burden
I don’t wanna be this person anymore
