#MusicMonday ALL I HAVE TO GIVE by HURTS

Happy Monday! Back with another song for MUSIC MONDAY – hosted by Drew over at The Tattooed Book Geek – which is your weekly chance to share a song or video you love!

A new release from Hurts for me! They’ve just released their fifth album, FAITH, and it’s wonderful! This song is ALL I HAVE TO GIVE….

You’re staring in the mirror
Watching as the walls are closing in
The shadow of a figure
Tryna make the best of this state that I am in

I guess I could do it
With the friends I’ve been pushing away
But I’m destined to suffer
Until I discover the reasons I’m afraid

God knows I tried
It might not be good enough
But it’s all I have to give
This is all I have to give
You might be right, sometimes
I never open up
But it’s all I have to give
This is all I have to give

You’re staring in the mirror
Picturing the face of a younger man
He buries it away
‘Cause he’s gotta try and cope in a way he’d understand

Be there for your brother
And strong for your mother again
‘Cause he’s too young to get it and she’ll get upset
If she knows you feel the pain

God knows I tried
It might not be good enough
But it’s all I have to give
This is all I have to give
You might be right, sometimes
I’m too scared to open up
But it’s all I have to give
This is all I have to give to you

I tell myself there’s nothing left to lose
I don’t know why I’m hiding from the truth
I face myself and all I see is you, is you

You’re staring in the mirror
Watching as the walls are closing in

But God knows I tried (God knows)
It might not be good enough (Might not be good enough)
But it’s all I have to give
This is all I have to give
You might be right, sometimes
I’m too scared to open up
But it’s all I have to give
This is all I have to give to you
To you
This is all I have to give
