I was walking, was living
My melody was acapella
There's a beat I was missing
No tune, or a scale, I could play

The sound in the distance
No orchestra playing together
Like a boat out to sea,
The silence was too deafening

So come and revive me
I can't feel my heartbeat
It's just me surviving alone

Before you,
My whole life was acapella
Now a symphony's
The only song to sing
Before you,
My whole life was acapella
Now a symphony's
The only song to sing

Everything was the same
One color was just like the others
An assembly routine
My memories were all black and white
Till I stopped over thinking
Decided to draw back the curtains
And I cleared all the cobwebs
And began to let in the light

So come and revive me
I can't feel my heartbeat
It's just me surviving alone

Before you,
My whole life was acapella
Now a symphony's
The only song to sing
Before you,
My whole life was acapella
Now a symphony's
The only song to sing

You are the drum in my heart beat
Bass and guitar lead
Stuck on the notes you play
My heart that you play on
Red like a crayon
I can't walk away

You are the drum in my heart beat
Bass and guitar lead
Stuck on the notes you play
My heart that you play on
Red like a crayon
I can't walk away

You are the drum in my heart beat
Bass and guitar lead
Stuck on the notes you play
My heart that you play on
Red like a crayon
I can't walk away

Before you,
My whole life was acapella
Now a symphony's
The only song to sing
Before you,
My whole life was acapella
Now a symphony's
The only song to sing

Before you,
My whole life was acapella
Now a symphony's
The only song to sing
Before you,
My whole life was acapella
Now a symphony's
The only song to sing

Before you,
My whole life was acapella
Now a symphony's
The only song to sing
Before you,
My whole life was acapella
Now a symphony's
The only song to sing
