04. Resurrect Me

Limbs And Branches
by Jon Foreman



 

It takes a long time to kill a man
fifty-five years at least
until he breaks down
starts to look underground
to go off, and get him some peace

I want to die a lot quicker than that
if itís my only way out
Iíve been counting up the cost
getting up on that cross
I want to know what this is all about

Father Time/ steals our days
like a thief
thereís no price/ that I wouldnít pay
to get some relief
Iíve become the empty shell
of a man I donít like so well
I am a living, breathing hell
come on and resurrect me!

I tried to drown the pain
with a friend of mine
It didnít seem to help
Sheís got a pretty face
with her wedding lace
But Iím still waking up with myself

I know what it means to choke it down
up down until your legs get weak
I know what itís like
on a Saturday night
To be alone in a crowded street

Father Time steals our days
like a thief
Thereís no price that I havenít
paid
to get some relief
Iíve become the shell of a man
I canít begin to even understand
Have I forgotten who I am?
come on and resurrect me!

Resurrect me
Resurrect me
