lyrics

she was broken, heart was open to it all
you let me stay there, let me lay there, let me fall
its getting heavy, she's not ready, she's alone
let me love you, let me love you, let me give your heart a home

but you're so empty, won't you let me make you whole?
i'm tired of trying, reigniting, building fires in the cold
but i'll be patient, this duration might grow old
so when you're ready, break the levee, let me know

my mother told me, well the old me, not to fight it
but i can't let you, i'll regret you, i can't hide it
you could change me, rearrange me, save my soul
let you break me, reawake me, let you take me through it all

but you're so empty, won't you let me make you whole?
i'm tired of trying, reigniting, building fires in the cold
but i'll be patient, this duration might grow old
so when you're ready, break the levee, let me know

i'm made to stumble, made to crumble into nothing
so love me tender, i'll surrender, that'd be something
your charcoal drawing, night is gnawing at my bones
watch me lie here, watch me die here, watch me learn to let you go

but you're so empty, won't you let me make you whole?
i'm tired of trying, reigniting, building fires in the cold
but i'll be patient, this duration might grow old
so when you're ready, break the levee, let me know
when you're ready, break the levee, let me know
when you're ready, break the levee, let me know
