  • In a swell
    In a swim
    You miss my stare
    In a square
    Take my hand
    My own cross to bear

    You miss my stare
    My name is despair

    Save your soul
    Save your soul
    A path I once shared
    Could my presence
    Be too much

    You will miss my stare
    My name is despair

    You miss my stare
    My name is despair

    Slightly walk
    I was lost

    Slightly marred
    Through defeat
    In a vacuum

    My only prayer
    My name is despair

    You will miss my stare
    My name is despair

    My name is despair
    My name is despair

    My only prayer Writer/s: Anthony Rogers, Jon Brookes, Mark Collins, Martin Blunt, Timothy Burgess
