penholder lyrics – flyleaf

i feel your eyes crawling over me
as though i am something more than me
but i don’t have anything good enough to say
i did not make myself this way

i’ll show you what he did but i wont take the credit
it’s not mine anyway i just held the pen that day

[chorus:]
i don’t deserve this
this time right now
it’s not something for which i can take the bow
i don’t deserve this; it wasn’t me
i can’t take glory for something that i can’t create
i don’t deserve this

i know what perfection is like
i cannot stand before its might
and i’m so far from what you think that i must be i just drown myself in mercy

i’ll show you what he did but i wont take the credit
it’s not mine anyway i just held the pen that day

[chorus]

i don’t deserve this
this time right now is not something for which i can take the blame
i don’t deserve this

and all the art that i supposedly create
is simply a faded reflection of something he’s already made

[chorus]

i don’t deserve this
