lyrics

for such a long time I said I'll wait on fate to bring me back where I'm longing to return
I never quite knew where that would be or what I'd see but I believed it was something you could earn
since those days I've let that dream quietly fade away like the toll of a bell
but I try again to console myself and pick the flowers that grow in the midst of hell

stumbling drunk in the aftermath of the last hope that you had
everything changes and nothing looks the same and it seems like the world's gone mad
so one day the question comes whispering, can you cut through the fog of your vice?
now you're walking that reckoning road bound in fire and paved in ice

well I was raised by temptation
and damned by salvation
made to look hopeless and proud
everything in its place
barely leaving a trace
and you another face
in the crowd

little girl lost in the tides, washed up, wandering through the haze of her dreams
she could have anything she want but what she's got, always caught in between
I never quite knew what she meant when she said she'd always been around
but even the closest of heart's never truly know where the other is bound

well I was raised by temptation
and damned by salvation
made to look hopeless and proud
everything in its place
barely leaving a trace
and you another face
in the crowd
