Vulnerable

Music & Lyrics: Ray Holt, Andrew Donaldson & Martin Faulkner

Lyrics

Take a ride on a day that don't care
Breathe a sigh, wave goodbye to the one
Who won't share your feelings

Dreams die, disintegration
Crushed under a cloud of fresh frustrations
Bitter and tired here

Tears burn, the sound of her heart breaking
You're missed and her voice just keeps
Crying "I need you"

Break down, screaming in anger
"Other things need my attention,
You're not important just now"
She's begging for you now

And you say "not today, not today"

If you really loved her
You'd find a way to be here for her now
If you really cared here
You'd find a way to be here now, to be here now
You'd be here now

Take a ride on a day that don't care
Understand that this time things aren't fine
Now you know you're alone here

Love dies, lost understanding
With regret she chooses to lose
All that you built with her

Tears burn, friends treat her better
You're home late when she breaks and she goes
For the last chance to leave here

Guilt bites, you try and reason
What hurts is the way she's gone
She's places to be right now
You're begging for her now

And she says "not today, not today"

And if you really loved her
You'd find a way to be here for her now
If you really cared here
You'd find a way to be here now, to be here now

(Priorities change, you'd be here now)

And if you really loved her
You'd find a way to be here for her now
If you really cared here
You'd find a way to be here now, to be here now
You'd be here now
