You saw my pain, washed out in the rain.
Broken glass, saw the blood run from my veins.
But you saw no fault no cracks in my heart.
And you knelt beside my hope torn apart.
But the ghosts that we knew will flicker from view
And we’ll live a long life.

So give me hope in the darkness that I will see the light.
Cause oh they gave me such a fright.
But I will hold as long as you like
Just promise me we’ll be alright.

So lead me back
Turn south from that place.
And close my eyes from my recent disgrace.
Cause you know my call
We’ll share my all.
Now children come and they will hear me roar.

So give me hope in the darkness that I will see the light.
Cause oh they gave me such a fright.
But I will hold as long as you like
Just promise me we’ll be alright.

But hold me still.
Bury my heart on the cold.
And hold me still
bury my heart on the cold.

So give me hope in the darkness that I will see the light.
Cause oh they gave me such a fright.
But I will hold as long as you like
Just promise me we’ll be alright.

But the ghosts that we knew will flicker from view
And we’ll live a long life.
