  • Sometimes life seems to quiet
    Into paralyzing silence
    Like the moonless dark
    Meant to make me strong

    Familiar breath of my old lies
    Changed the color in my eyes
    Soon he will perforate the fabric of the peaceful by and by

    Sorrow lasts through this night
    I'll take this piece of you
    And hold for all eternity
    For just one second I felt whole
    As you flew right through me

    Left alone with only reflections of the memory
    To face the ugly girl that's smothering me
    Sitting closer than my pain
    He knew each tear before it came
    Soon He will perforate the fabric of the peaceful by and by

    Sorrow lasts through this night
    I'll take this piece of you
    And hold for all eternity
    For just one second I felt whole
    As you flew right through me

    And we kiss each other one more time
    And sing this lie that's halfway mine
    The sword is slicing through the question
    So I won't be fooled by his angel light

    Sorrow lasts through this night
    I'll take this piece of you
    And hold for all eternity
    For just one second I felt whole
    As you flew right through me

    And up into the stars
    Joy will come Writer/s: HOWARD BENSON, JAMES CULPEPPER, JARED HARTMANN, LACEY NICOLE MOSLEY, PAT SEALS, SAMEER BHATTACHARYA
