please bleed lyrics – ben harper

make me feel like a beggar
make me feel like a thief
make me feel like a battle, that cannot end in peace
make me feel like running, as if i’ve lost my nerve
make me feel like crying, tears i don’t deserve

please bleed
so i know that you are real
so i know that you can feel
the damage that you’ve done
who have i become
to myself i am none
i am none
i am none

is this really living sometimes it’s hard to tell
or is this a kind of gentler h*ll
turn out the lights
and let me stare into your soul
i was born and bled for you old

please bleed
so i know that you are real
so i know that you can feel
the damage that you’ve done
who have i become
to myself i am none
i am none
i am none

never said thank you
never said please
never gave reason to believe
so as it stands
i remain on my knees
good lovers make great enemies

please bleed
so i know that you are real
so i know that you can feel
the damage that you’ve done
who have i become
to myself i am none
i am none
i am none

please bleed
so i know that you are real
so i know that you can feel
the damage that you’ve done
who have i become
to myself i am none
i am none
i am none
