Then you find it's been a hundred days
When's the last time you remember feeling safe?
You're surrounded by assassins in this place
But you wanted to be here and I'm amazed
If I appear in every story that you tell, that you tell
How can you say that I don't know you well?
Wasn't I the one that caught you when you fell, when you fell?
How can you say that I don't treat you well?
When I'm ringing out your name like a bell, like a bell
How can you say that I don't wish you well?
I wish you well
