I used to live my life
Like an old Swiss army knife
All self contained and lyin’ ‘bout the pain
I always felt

Oh I was sharp as steel
That don’t seem to help me heal
Had to bleed ‘til I learned that I need
A little help

You’re a part of the first aid kit
I didn’t know I had
Always ready when I reach for it
You taught me that

No bandaids no pills no red cross on the side
This is something better
A couple of friends just one day at a time
Healing together

Sometimes I still forget
I got this fancy first aid kit
Call 911 like everything’s undone
Or call you instead
