lyrics

I can't keep up with the world around me
A cruel place with a cancerous breath
I long back to sacred ground
The faces I loved, the warm hands that held me high
Tidal waves they crash at my feet
But that sense of drowning has shown me what I need
I had to believe this is the place where I'll be
Chasing glory and building my legacy

Listen,
All together, it will catch us all
We'll stand strong to break our falls
In my heart I'll never cherish myself
So I will share this path with someone else

And maybe I've looked down for way too long
I tried to right my unchangeable wrongs
But now I'm here singing different songs
Coming to terms with all the harm that's been done
Tomorrow's like a light at the end
I do believe that I'm a better human today
Can I be that person that I've always dreamed to be?


What does it take?
Will we bend or break?
I can promise to you, my dear
You won't get the best of me

You won't get the best of me
You won't get the best of me

I never thought I'd find myself
Right here, right now
I never thought I'd find myself
Right here, right...

Now,
Was it worth it?
To give up shelter and routine
To chase the promise
Yet feel (so) hollow once again

I gave up my heart, and left with the storms
Wailing and seeking for a place to call my own
Somewhere far away from where my heart was buried


When I saw your face, my heart started pumping
My blood started to flow, and I found a reason to love again
A reason to fight, with pride, with fires raging inside
You give me everything that I have given to you
And I am so fucking sure, that this is worth all the pain
The blood, the sweat and the tears without shame

But there's something on my chest left to say:

You don't know what you mean to me
You are the rose in my battlefields, you are my friend
You are my family, you are my love
You are the haven that I call home

I carry you in my heart, right where you belong
But will you mourn me when I am gone...?

Will you mourn me?
When I'm gone?

Will you mourn me, when my body hits the waves?
