Fingernails Lyrics

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
Under my fingernails

I'm empty, lonely and accused
Accused without a word
My fingernails, are chipping down, from clawing 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!

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
All my dreams out of reach, under my fingernails

I watch it all slip through my hands
My brokenness revealed
I'm so proud, I'm so proud, I'm crying to be filled
I'm killing, distroying the pain, that's killing me away
I've got to live, I've got to love, like I am unafraid

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
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
All my dreams out of reach, under my fingernails

I'm wasting, wasting 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 frailty

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
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
All my dreams out of reach, under my fingernails

Never reaching me!
