Monsters

I see your monsters I see your pain
Tell me your problems I'll chase them away
I'll be your lighthouse I'll make it okay
When I see your monsters I'll stand there so brave and chase them all away

A cup of coffee still steaming staring back at me and it's blacker than the night eh
I'm awake but still sleeping I keep telling myself I'll be alright (I won't)
And I know it can't get worse than today sitting here
And she's trying to rehearse what to say
See she's in the bathroom and hoping I'm not in earshot
While she's getting used to the sound of her teardrops
Splash it hits the towel and I know it's been awhile
Since you've seen me smile and laugh like I used to
I've been in denial since it happened just take me to the past cause I just can't imagine losing you too
I can't explain this so I keep it all inside wear my pain but it's masked by my pride
She came to hold me and she cried told me this and she stared into my eyes and said

I see your monsters I see your pain
Tell me your problems I'll chase them away
I'll be your lighthouse I'll make it okay
When I see your monsters I'll stand there so brave and chase them all away

I can't you won't like what you see
If you were in my head and had to hear my plea
It's like I can't believe this is happening to me
And could someone please shut off this fucking answering machine
So I can stop leaving these messages that you will never get
And all these cries for help you'll never see you'll never check
But I guess it's easy for you to leave me
But believe me see this isn't something that I'm a just forget
I would trade it all for one more minute don't you see I really need you to talk to
Uh I'm still sitting here wondering who did it while I'm staring out our front door knowing you'll never walk through
Said you'd come right back now you're gone like that
A blank stare as I stand so alone I know you're never coming home Damn

I see your monsters I see your pain
Tell me your problems I'll chase them away
I'll be your lighthouse I'll make it okay
When I see your monsters I'll stand there so brave and chase them all away

Uh I got a heart made of fools gold got me feeling so cold
They keep chipping away
All the promises I told felt like I was on those they keep slipping away
I want nobody else but it's hard to get to know me when I don't know myself
And it helps cause I felt I was down I was out then you looked at me now and said

I see your monsters I see your pain
Tell me your problems I'll chase them away
I'll be your lighthouse I'll make it okay
When I see your monsters I'll stand there so brave
I see your monsters I see your pain
Tell me your problems I'll chase them away
I'll be your lighthouse I'll make it okay
When I see your monsters I'll stand there so brave and chase them all away
