Fingernails
by Skillet



Chorus: Never reaching what I want to reach.
Never being who I want to be.
Blaming me when I fall and fail.
All my dreams splintering under my fingernails.

Verse 1: I'm empty, lonely and accused.
Accused without a word.
My fingernails, are chipping down,
from crawling in the dirt.
I'm so lost, lost and confused.
I threw it all away.
How can I be beautiful, when I am so afraid??

*REPEAT CHORUS*

Verse 2: I watched it all slip through my hands.
My brokeness revealed. I'm so proud,
I'm so proud, I;m crying to be filled.
I'm killing, destroying the plague,
That's killin me away.
I've got to live. I've got to love,
Like I am unafraid.

*REPEAT CHORUS*

Bridge: I'm waisting, waisting every moment.
I want to be tasting, tasting every moment, with you.
I'm suffering, I'm bleeding, on my knees,
Who's gonna save me? Suffering, bleeding, save me from this pit of frality.

*REPEAT CHORUS*
