Nothing I Asked For

There must be something in the water that I’m drinking
Because I’ve never fallen this hard
You’re nothing I asked for, but all that I needed
Please catch me before I get scarred

You’re just a ray to my sunrise
And a shadow on my wall
I was falling apart and swimming in anger
But this time I’m giving it my all

And I never asked for you
But you came when I need something new
My whole world is spinning slowly
No time to catch my breath
No more will I be lonely
And I don’t want to miss you yet

If you have noticed what is in me
Then you have seen all that is wrong
And as you look into my eyes
You can’t help but note what’s gone arise
See my nature is broken
And I’m all out of strength
The simple words you have spoken
Have given it back to me

Is there nothing out of place with who you are?
Because I’ve seen what its like
And you’re nothing, no nothing
You’re nothing I asked for, but all that I needed
My heart it was torn, and you’ve gone cleaned it

You’re just a ray to my sunrise
And a shadow in my wall
I was falling apart and swimming in anger
But this time I’m giving it my all

And I never asked for you
But you came when I need something new
My whole world is spinning slowly
No time to catch my breath
No more will I be lonely
And I don’t want to miss you yet
