Under the boarded tree
I saw you next to me
Closing your eyes and looking in
Clouds in the sky today
Thoughts as we drift away
Free from our wounds and from our sin
Islands of lost turn around and bring your feet to the ground
For the sun shines within you and burns when you stand all alone
Outside the temple gates something eternal waits
Endless soul that's misunderstood
Soldiers in time will fall down from the highest wall
Clinging for life to watch it all
Careless in faults 'til you find myself I seem so blind, so blind
So I can't dream of yesterday
And everything I see remembers who you were
The day that you were gone from me
And I can't find the words to say
Shouldn't it be easier than this
So much easier than this for me
Under the falling rain
I carry a broken chain
Poisoned from fighting for myself
Simple and mesmerized, lost in this exercise
Slowly my heart has turned to cold
I can't say no...
I can't give in...
I can't let go of what I'm in...
I don't know how it might be now...
but it won't be all that you are from me
I can't believe in me...
