Lyrics: Hollie Smith – Please

We all fighting a battle that no one else can see
We all have our own reason, excuses we can’t release
We all need a haven, when all there is, is rain
We all need forgiveness to have our slates wiped clean

I wish I that I could tell you
I wish that you could hear
Oh I’m never gonna hurt you, always gonna be here
Never gonna turn my back
I wish that you could listen
Cause I know that you are strong
Oh I’m never gonna hurt you, always gonna be here
Know that you are not alone. Please

Only hold the burden, inherit all the shame
Refusing there’s a saviour, can’t let go of the blame
If the cycles keep on turning, you need to break the chains
The scars may never leave you but there’s a spirit to reclaim

I wish I that I could tell you
I wish that you could hear
Oh I’m never gonna hurt you, always gonna be here
Never gonna turn my back
I wish that you could listen
Cause I know that you are strong
Oh I’m never gonna hurt you, always gonna be here
Know that you are not alone. Please

Where we don’t, cast any stone
No longer, know you’re alone
Holding feet to the fire, don’t walk this alone
You can change your fate
