Cries Of The Past

Album: Cries Of The Past (2003)
  • It happened all so fast heavy with sleep my eyes closed
    The next thing I remember was crawling out from the car and
    Seeing you lying there
    Holding your head kissing you for the last time
    The taste of blood on my lips
    Your clothes torn apart perfumed with gas
    It seems like it was yesterday when the rain poured down
    I can still hear your screams as if it was happening all over again
    Saturday, December 4th that night would become a grave
    That would crush my heart
    Joy and laughter exchanged for grief and silence
    Searching for so long to find you and the moment
    You were ripped from me
    Laying here on this empty shelf never to be read again
    In these pages lie every memory of you
    The wind blew your heart over my eyes and I slept for days
    Praying not to awake, but these dreams can only last so long
    Facing the day looking through these tears
    I'll always look back and remember that night as you lay there
    Looking over that casket seeing your face times of past rushing
    Touching your cold hand wishing it would touch me back
    You look so pretty lying there just like the first day we met
    It feels so real like old times but it's nothing, it's nothing
    I can taste the stale air on my tongue and death lights up the sky
    Hope finds itself an end stopping at my thoughts
    Pictures of you help bring back the tears
    Walking in the present but living in the past
    How much longer will I embrace sorrow?
    From the moment you entered my life
    My whole outlook on love would change
    You brought out a happiness I didn't even know I had
    And now you've gone leaving without a goodbye
    That glass heart that rested in my chest has fallen and shattered
    Here on lord is the remains of a broken heart
    For I have faith you can give me joy and life again
    Death has fallen but love covers me
    Heaven is now home to my angel of love Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
