The Song I'm Singing

In a time of innocence
I was a sinner just for fun
now there's so much to feel
but all I feel is numb
and when everything is illuminated
I'm a blind man stumbling into walls
the rain feels like a symphony  
but I can't hear it fall

And it's the last taste left on my tongue
that concurs empires within my soul
but if there's still a battle yet to be won
I'll be on that hill come morning
can you hear the song I'm singing
oh my love
oh my love

At a glance I am a man
but I'm still a child underneath
now there's so much to be
but I'm bankrupt on belief
and as everyone dances in the arms of love
I'm a wallflower wilting on the vine
the stars sing in harmony
but I can't see them shine

And it's the last taste left on my tongue
that concurs empires within my soul
but if there's still a battle yet to be won
I'll be on that hill come morning
can you hear the song I'm singing
oh my love
oh my love

Break down
cut the rope
I'd be strong
and still standing if it weren't for you
but the universe will have it's way
at the end of the day
it's just another slow motion ballet
to the earth our hearts' traumas are mere whispers
less than an afterthought
but darkness has a shape
and I've got mine and you've got yours
but if you could just hear the song I'm singing
open your ears and your heart
hear the song I'm singing
I'll sing till the darkness has come apart
even if you can't hear me
even if you don't love me

And it's the last taste left on my tongue
that concurs empires within my soul
but if there's still a battle yet to be won
I'll be on that hill come morning
can you hear the song I'm singing
oh my love
oh my love
my love
can you hear me
oh oh my love

These gentle lines reflect my own sentiments, SD.
