With an open heart I'd close my eyes; I'd pray for you.
I'd watch the teardrops falling down your face.

This isn't right, this is all wrong.
I never wanted this to break, and leave me here,
Surrounded in my thoughts.
(But I never wanted this to hurt you.)
I won't back down as I'm breaking hearts and watching angels fall.
I can tell by your eyes that there's one shot dead in Birmingham tonight.
Your message was too clear, so I could only lie.
The time to vent is over, so you're screaming out His name.

I never wanted this to break your heart, to make you cry –
I'd die for you.
But only in my mind I see you smile.

This isn't right, this is all wrong.
I never wanted this to break, and leave me here,
Surrounded in my thoughts.
(But I never wanted this to hurt you.)
I won't back down as I'm breaking hearts and watching angels fall.
I can tell by your eyes that there's one shot dead in Birmingham tonight.
Your message was too clear, so I could only lie.
The time to vent is over, so you're screaming out His name.
