V
I just can’t leave it alone; I’m picking it to the bone.
I act as if the scab’s the thing, when the wound below is festering.

C
I can’t leave it alone, the scab that has grown
I’ll need a backbone.............. to let it all go.

V
I work you over in my mind, but you’re just one in a line.
It’s feeding my OCD to think you’re something that I need.

C
I can’t leave it alone, the scab that has grown
I’ll need a backbone.............. to let it all go.

B
Can’t rush, won’t heal, don’t care how it feels
patience , God’s time, your will, not mine
I will obey, it’s just so hard to take

V
I don’t get what I deserve. I don’t think I’d have the nerve.
I’m addicted to something I think; it’s really no different than drink.

C
I can’t leave it alone, the scab that has grown
I’ll need a backbone.............. to let it all go.
