For All Those Sleeping — My Funeral lyrics

[Intro]
I never asked for your touch, I never asked for anyone.
I never wanted to feel, I never want to be loved.

[Verse 1]
Take my hand, but don't hold too tightly,
Cause it seems that my favor comes and goes nightly.
And I hate the silence but I keep fighting
Off everyone till their bed seems inviting.
Don't go trying to change me,
Cause it'll take more than you just to save me.
I'm so far gone that there's no place for me
In anyone's arms, in anyone's arms so...

[Chorus:]
Break it like you mean it, cause I don't need it.
Now you got me thinking, is this what I want?
When I die, they'll say "No one's here today".
It's my funeral, it's my funeral.
Break it like you mean it, cause I've been thinking:
I don't really need it.
There's nothing that I won't give up,
So what if I die alone?
It's my funeral, it's my funeral.

[Verse 2]
See these hands, they work hard to spite me.
They're artists of their craft,
That's why I'll never hold your burdens like they carry mine.
But I've learned to love misery,
And that's why I'll
Take the curse with me.
Down to the grave, down to the grave, I'll
Take this curse with me​.
When we're below, then you'll be safe.

[Bridge]
I never asked for your touch, I never asked for anyone.
I never wanted to feel, I never want to be loved.

[Hook]
This is the fall, this is the remedy,
(I never asked for, I never wanted)
This is your way out, way out.
(I never asked for anyone)
This is the flood, this is my reckoning
(I never asked for, I never needed)
This is the reason I can't be loved!
(I never wanted)

[Chorus:]
Break it like you mean it, cause I don't need it.
Now you got me thinking, is this what I want?
When I die, they'll say "No one's here today".
It's my funeral, it's my funeral.
Break it like you mean it, cause I've been thinking:
I don't really need it.
There's nothing that I won't give up,
So what if I die alone?
It's my funeral, it's my funeral.

[Outro]
And I believe, we meet the person we were meant to love
When we're ready for it.
I'm just afraid that some of us never are,
So if these are my last words,
Then I want it known, that I tried,
But there's a part of me
That just won't let me be happy.
You were enough.
I just wasn't enough for me.
