lyrics

KEEPING ME HERE
Benny and April Rodriguez / Darden Smith / James House

Mentally, physically, emotionally
I'm as broke as you can get
I’ve been close but I ain’t hit bottom yet
Lately it feels like I’m just treading water
Everyday seems the same
Round and round and around circling that drain

It’s your love
That’s keeping me here
And it breaks my heart to think
I might cause you tears
If I push you away
It’s just to keep you safe
While I’m trying to get my head clear
It’s your love that’s keeping me here

I know inside I used to be different
After all that I’ve been through
If you’d seen what I’ve seen you’d be different too
I've been living my second life
The first one ended, can’t tell you why
I'm just lucky I’ve got something worth living for

It’s your love
That’s keeping me here
And it breaks my heart to think
I might cause you tears
If I push you away
It’s just to keep you safe
While I’m trying to get my head clear
It’s your love that’s keeping me here

It’s not tomorrow
It’s not yesterday
It’s not about trying to make right
All of my mistakes
I just want peace
And a little truth
If it’s the last thing
That I do

It’s your love
That’s keeping me here
And it breaks my heart to think
I might cause you tears
If I push you away
It’s just to keep you safe
While I’m trying to get my head clear
It’s your love that’s keeping me here
