  • When you came back I knew you'd have a story.
    You need someone to ease the pain of living life.
    You're like a soldier in the fray, seeking shelter
    From all the madness that you've seen raining down now.

    I know things change, your world has slipped away.
    I know things change, but you're living like a soldier
    Who's caught in the fray.
    Don't lose your faith,
    It's not so cold,
    It's not too late.

    When you were naive you were so invincible,
    And you laughed at anyone and anything that ever got in your way.
    But now the mirror shows the change and you don't see that
    You're sinking back into the crowd, an echo fading.

    I know things change, your world has slipped away.
    I know things change, but you're living like a soldier
    Who's caught in the fray.
    Don't lose your faith,
    It's not so cold,
    It's not too late

    And I never thought I'd see
    You living on your knees,
    A slave to some disease
    That holds you captive.

    And you can look inside of me
    But the answers that you seek
    And everything you need
    Is all inside you.

    I know things change, your world has slipped away.
    I know things change, but you're living like a soldier
    Who's caught in the fray.
    Don't lose your faith, 'cause it's not so cold, it's not too late.
