  • I've never really known which way I'm facing
    But I feel like something's changed
    There's a storm outside, my walls are aging
    They're coming back down in the hardest way

    There's a reign protecting me
    Rings around my father's eyes
    Light above the morning sea
    Into darkness I will reach
    Fall into the ocean deep
    Just to bring you back

    Babe, it's almost five
    I've been gone since the moonlight faded
    And punishing rain washed me away
    How can I give back what once was stolen?
    How can I stay all day?
    Well, it's all a lie, I'm just hiding the memory
    Yeah, what awaits for you?
    What awaits for me?

    There's a bridge connecting me
    Rings around my father's eyes
    Light above the morning sea
    Fill the gray into the song
    Feel the wings across your arms
    Under the way it moves its own
    Mm-mm, mm-mm

    As I ride into the wind
    What a restless feeling
    One I've tried to hide so long
    Fill the gray into the song
    To feel the wings across your arms
    Cut the wing in two

    No one really knows which way they're facing
    'Til they're coming back down Writer/s: Adam Granduciel
