lyrics

There's nothing I can say that hasn't been said before
But that doesn't make the emotion behind these words any less vivid
If there are some experiences that we all will go through
Then I hope this song can help you, like it has pulled me through

So tell me the truth, though I've grown close to the moon
When will the tides turn?
How long will this last, and in this black sky so vast
When will the sun shine?

It's funny how we watch our lives fall apart,
Real world consequences of a broken heart
Two years I have spent in this hell, with so little progress made
Those beautiful eyes (Haunt my dreams)
And that smile (Haunts my waking thoughts)
But you won't be the end of me, I will release my demons

So tell me the truth, though I've grown close to the moon
When will the tides turn?
How long will this last, and in this black sky so vast
When will the sun shine?
And when the sun rises in the East
Will I find calm? (And peace)
Or is there more of this journey to complete
More mountains for me?

Everyday when I wake up I tell myself
That in time, this passes
Every time I feel that ache in my chest
I know it's a reminder that my heart is still beating

Now that I've seen how it goes
Now that I've seen what life throws

Now that I've seen how it goes
(I will prepare my heart, my mind, and my soul)
Now that I've seen what life throws
(The next time that we meet, I will be free)

So tell me the truth, though I've grown close to the moon
When will the tides turn?
How long will this last, and in this black sky so vast
When will the sun shine?
And when the sun rises in the East
Will I find calm? (And peace)
Or is there more of this journey to complete
More mountains for me?
