Fingernails Lyrics

Music & Lyrics by John L. Cooper

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 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'm so afraid?


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, destroying the plague that's killing me away
I've got to live, I've got to love like I'm unafraid


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 see me suffering, bleeding? Save me from this pit of frailty!

Never reaching me!
