Lyrics:

THE PIT

if you don't know
who you are
don't go where I've been
don't go too far
don't do what I did
don't try for the Pit
don't do what I did
you're too frail for the Pit

God loved you when He made you
He put sunlight in your eyes
gold dust in your hair
and roses in your smile
God loves what He makes
and He loves when He takes
God loves what He makes

on the rooftop
out in the rain
I cry in agony
I'm calling out your name
my voice writes it in one stroke accross the town
one thousand times your name
in concrete echoes all around

I watch you take off
wrapped in my voice
watch you being tossed up by the wind until we fall
your name and me
all over town
a zillion times we drip down on the concrete

we sit and talk and you smile
your bravest smile
but I see where it hurts
I'll leave you to it for a while and then
I'll touch you gently
till you break down and cry
but you can give me all the pain
I promise I won't die on you
o no this time I won't die
tell me you'll stay now
and I promise I won't die

come over here
let me hold you close to me
I need to know know you're
feeling safe when we are near
I need to know that you won't go down like you did
I need to know that you won't
try for the Pit

God loved you when He made you
He put sunlight in your eyes
red gold dust in your hair
and roses in your smile
God loves what He makes
and He loves when He takes
God loves what He makes
