lyrics

My body is small
Sometimes it feels like I don't have a body at all
But I burn and I bruise and I bleed when I stumble and fall
And I know you know what I mean
'Cause all of our bodies are made of the same things.

When we touch
The boundaries of our bodies blur so much
It's like all the hardest edges become soft
And we know what it means to be alive
It almost feels like we can fly
If only our bodies would comply.

All of the darkness turns to light
All of the sadness is made right
Don't be scared now
Don't be scared now
Don't be scared.

My body is weak.
Brittle bones and blood with a heartbeat
I feel it pulsing even when I sleep
And when I dream
I imagine things I've never even seen
'Cause our eyes can't pick up everything
Our bodies can be so limiting.

All of our blindness becomes sight
Lay down your armor in this fight
Don't be scared now
Don't be scared now
Don't be scared.

My body is young
But one day when I'm older I'll become
A singer whose songs have all been sung
Then I'll be dead
You can look upon this shell that I have shed
Please say the things I know I should've said
Like thank you, I love you, I'm sorry
Thank you, I love you, I'm sorry
Thank you, I love you, I'm sorry

All of the darkness turns to light
All of the sadness is made right
Don't be scared now
Don't be scared now
Don't be scared.
