I am STRONG because I am weak...
I am kind because I am mean...
I am a lover because I'm a fighter...
I am fearless because I've been afraid...
I am WISE because I have been foolish...
...I live because I've died...
...And LAUGH because I've cried...


As the winds blow away,
The ashes of an empty day...
I stand alone in washed out embers,
Looking on forever...

At the broken skies,
High above...
And those who died,
For what they love...

I was lost and then you found me,
Finally learned how to live free...
Was once a damned, forgotten soul,
What a sad, cold way to go...

Found with a heart torn to shreds,
But somehow I wasn't truly dead...
You helped me up and let me go,
Into a world I didn't really know...

Fixed my heart with threads of love,
I turned around but you were gone...
You cut me loose and I fell apart,
Then I woke with a shocking start...

To find that it was just a dream,
That it was never really meant to be...
And that I'm alone in this old town,
Nothin' left but to try and get out...
