The darkness was my Savior,
The blood was my wine,
Wings chained down and painted
Black, I couldn't fly.
I couldn't breathe, a hollowness
Lay in my chest, cold, unfeeling, I
Lashed out in anger, wanting to feel
More than pain.
Scars shadowed my heart and
Blinded my eyes, thought it didn't matter
So I reached for the blade and
Scarred my wrist.
But still I kept on, still I held
Hope there was more than this,
More than the pain of the Past and Present,
Still I searched.
My heart finally broke one too
Many times and I was about to
Give up on finding real Love,
When I met you.
I spent my life praying to a God
Who showed me the waiting and
The tears were worth it, the heartbreaks
I've been afraid, not because I'm
Afraid you're like the others but afraid
I won't be good enough, afraid this is a dream and
I'll wake without you.
But I don't want to be afraid anymore,
So unlock my chains and help me fly,
I'll carry you with me, I promise you, I'm here to stay,
Always and Forever...
