Track Name: Sanctuary
There was a time when the words I heard made me feel so secure, but those same words became distorted and tore away at everything I knew. I’m falling. What has become of the days we shared? The feelings I knew to be so real? I’m reaching towards a long gone hope and screaming to a silent room, alone. Struggling to defend what I know to be real. Claw at the walls, but you’ll never touch what’s inside.
Track Name: Dreaming
Embers burn low, the flame of trust extinguished. I strain my eyes to regain a glimpse of what I once knew. Can it be saved? I watched you fall away, at first just a step at a time. But with every move you made, I felt the onset of a growing divide. So now, I stand alone. Searching for the strength inside to open my mouth and bare my soul without choking on my words. What can I say? I know I hold the key to reignite the spark. As I close my eyes, I can only keep dreaming. I can only keep wishing, I can only keep hoping, I can only keep waiting for the sun to rise.
