  • Am I faithful, am I strong, am I good enough to belong
    In your reverie a perfect girl
    Your vision of romance is cruel and all along I played the fool
    All your expectations bury me

    Don't worry,

    [Chorus]
    You will fine the answer if you let it go
    Give yourself some time to falter
    But don't forgo knowing that you're loved no matter what
    And everything will come around in time

    I own my insecurities I try to own my destiny
    That I can make or break it if I choose
    But you take my words and twist them 'round
    'Till I'm the one who brings you down
    You make me feel like I'm the one to blame for all of this

    [Chorus]

    You need everybody with you on your side
    Know that I am here for you but I hope in time
    You'll find yourself alright alone
    You'll find yourself with open arms
    You'll find yourself you'll find yourself in time

    The riot in my heart decides to keep me open and alive
    I have to take myself away from you
    'Cause I can't compete I can't deny there's nothing that I didn't try
    How did I go so wrong in loving you

    Don't worry,

    [Chorus]
