Everything You Love - Lyrics

Your little nails, bitten back and snarling
Speak volumes upon volumes, my darling
Out of reach of the light of day
In a veil of dirty lace
With a heart made of wood and a bruise on your face
You were given a choice between fire and ice

I can see you now, clear as a bell
With your arms full of thorns and your heart like a well
Holding your arms clenched to your chest
A song in your throat and a tongue at rest

Your eyes are searching boldly
For a stronger one to hold you
A softer bed to warm you
For every man to swarm you

But if you could just wait patiently
I can see him standing in front of me
So fold your arms to your chest
A song in your throat and a tongue at rest
But everything you love will leave at best
For until you're alone you will know no rest

I still see you standing so solemn and cold
In a white dress and blindfold, knee-deep in the snow
With the birch trees just like swords
Touching the sky in a silent horde

Like an army of your past strifes
Frozen for a lifetime
I can see you now, clear as a bell
With your arms full of thorns and your heart like a well

Holding your hands clenched to your chest
But everything you love will leave at best
Everything you love will leave at best
For until you're alone you'll know no rest
