Lyrics

You saw my pain, washed out in the rain
And 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
And turn south from that place
And close my eyes to my recent disgrace
'Cause you know my call
And we'll share my all

And our 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 coals

And hold me still, bury my heart next to yours
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 on with all of my might
Just promise me we'll be alright

The ghosts that we knew made us black and all blue
But we'll live a long life

And the ghosts that we knew will flicker from view
And we'll live a long life
