lyrics

Take me to a place where I will never be alone
The light is cold in a sky of gray where I make my home
I long to see a blade of green or a traveler on the road
Reach out my hand and feel the life in something I can hold

Place your hands upon these scars and feel
What I could’ve been
My deadened eyes can not reflect the flame
That lived within
I buried my soul as my body cried to live
And begged for you
If only...

Doors stood open but I lacked the courage to walk through
The darkness on the other side froze me in my pursuit
Solitude is what I reap of a misbegotten view
But while there is breath in me I yet may begin anew

Place your hands upon these scars and feel
What I could’ve been
My deadened eyes can not reflect the flame
That lived within
I buried my soul as my body cried to live
And begged for you

Wash me...
Make me clean...
And I will start again
