Savior (I Knew You Wouldn't Love Me).

this skin stretches so I tear it off
and lay it at your feet
I dig around inside myself
have my own personal meet and greet
see I knew you wouldn’t love me
if I let you see right through
so I painted my skin and dyed my hair
so you’d never find the truth

I’m not your savior
get off your knees
I’m not perfect
and I never promised to be
I’m not your protector
this sword is too big
this boy in shining armor
outgrew clothing fit for your king
no, I’m not your savior
no matter how much I’d like to be

I stifle all my uniqueness
and hide among the sheep
I’m afraid if you see my true colors
your wolf would destroy me
see I knew you wouldn’t love me
if I held you in my arms
so I bound my hands with unspoken words
to shelter you from harm

I’m not your savior
get off your knees
I’m not perfect
and I never promised to be
I’m not your protector
this sword is too big
this boy in shining armor
outgrew clothing fit for your king
no, I’m not your savior
no matter how much I’d like to be

and you say I can be anything I want to be
but I don’t know what I want to be
when you’re standing over me

see I knew you wouldn’t love me
if I let you see right through
oh I knew you wouldn’t love me
if I told you the truth

I’m not your savior
get off your knees
I’m not perfect
and I never promised to be
I’m not your protector
this sword is too big
this boy in shining armor
outgrew clothing fit for your king
no, I’m not your savior
no matter how much I’d like to be
no matter how much I’d like to be
no matter how much I’d like to be
no matter how much I’d like to be
