And I want to close my eyes
And I want a place to hide
I want to leave it all and run
Till it's all been said and done

And I'm crying deep inside
But you don't see it in my eyes
They're like stones but they have sunk
In all the lies that we have drunk

And it's coming I can see
Another bad memory

Chorus:
It'll burn and it'll ache
It'll hurt a thousand ways
A thousand times I'll try to stay
A thousand times I'll run away
A thousand nights I'll lay awake
A thousand times I'll pray for day
One chance only to be free
One of a thousand memories

And I can't take all the guilt
All the water that I've spilled
The broken monuments you've built
The barren land that you had tilled

And the waves, they wash up clear
But they seem black through all your fear
The water's warm but you feel cold
The night is young but you feel old

Chorus

Bridge:
And the leaves have dried and fallen
And the bitter wind is calling
But you stand firm where you are
Underneath a storm of stars
And the sun's rays hit the ground
Winter birds circle around
You can tell it's time to go
Something in you told you so

Chorus
