Oh I wish I never knew at all You lit a flame and now you’ll watch it blow And with every thought it’s worse And with every sight it burns But I wouldn’t change it for the world Oh wont someone help me lift this curse I didn’t know a lot but this is worse And with every tear I cry There goes a shining light And it’ll lead me back again
2.
Drifting through in my conscious Passing by without a sign Sitting down in my highness Letting the world float on by Your light shines, brightest in the joy In waiting for the rain to come Laying down enjoy the silence Forget the world that made you cry Keeping hold of all the goodness Letting the bad and rotten die Your light shines, brightest in the joy In waiting for the rain to come Waiting for the fall, let it all come down In their hearts and in their minds

And with all these memories, sinking like a stone Falling to my knees, whatever have I done And so he says to me, you cant fight this alone Just take me by the hands and I’ll show you Down into the night and I wont let go Now the time has come, to face another day I’ve learnt to use this lie, from all this time away These things they always fade, away into the dark So take me by the hands and lead me Down into the night and I wont let go Down into the night and I wont let go

Justify the wrongs to right and you’ll touch the sky with me tonight Leaning on the ever lasting, ever lasting arms Lean on that little man, on the cross Testify to those who care and lust for all of those who fear Leaning on the ever lasting, ever lasting hate Take these lines to cure, this never ending pain

Every night i sit and wait on my own anticipate that the end is coming in but i never shed a tear cause it never comes it never comes for me everytime the sun comes up i can feel it creeping on another day , another chance to forget about the past oh here it comes oh here it comes again
6.
Your eyes that run along my frame They cut deeper without pain My eyes they see what you have done and the sweat drips until I’m cold Until I’m cold, but not in my heart Day falls away, as we stay inside This time slips away, when we’re side by side We are the things that we despise We stay and keep things locked inside The dark that like to fill your mind Is trapped as long as we embrace Until I’m cold, but not in my heart Day falls away, as we stay inside This time slips away, when we’re side by side

And its slipping through your hands as the weight comes crashing down and the world is hard to take as your will begins to break when you run against the grain the world is hard to take and the heat it takes its toll and theres nowhere left to go

See through the eyes of me, look at what you are Stare across the changing land, see just what you’ve done Be the things you want to be, grab it in your hands Look at what these eyes have seen change it while you can Wait for the dreams to fade, before you’re lost again Come with an open heart, curse the world without Pray for what you’ve tried to be, learn to be a man Look at what the past has been and change it while you can

Is this the dream that I’ve had before Where the sky came down and we tried to hide Or is this the life that I’ve lived before, everyday Or is this the place that I’ve tried to find, I can’t say Where is the love that I felt before When I held you near, as the rain came down Or is this the truth, that I’m missing you more each day Or is this the place that I’ve tried to find, I can’t say
