Sleep Away

Here in sleep, I find my closure
Farther still, yet a bit closer than
Before I pushed myself to try and understand you better

Sleep Away

Still I try to understand the reason for your painful plan
It hurts to think I'm not included
I know that I still play a part, though the purpose remains clouded
All I ask is that you give me faith enough to never doubt you

Like in shadow, light's denied
The path that it would take to find
The answers to the riddles lie
Alone and far away from God

Like a candle, faith will flicker
Burning still, yet fading quicker
All I ask is strength enough to take a chance and risk the heartache

Sleep Away

Mumble all your prayers in shame believing faith is all the same when hope is gone you'll know you've lost it
Never lend a hand again

Reaching out to take advantage of the truly hopeful kind who give and offer sacrifice of penance where the darkness lies

Lost in shadow, light's denied
The path that I would take tonight
This hope I know I'll never find
Alone and far away from God

Like a candle
Like a candle
Flicker like a candle, fade away and hope that darkness binds you to the truth that light could never handle in the coldest nights
Your faith alone will never save you, trust in God and God will take you to the path where you decide to follow or be crucified

Lost in shadow, light's denied
The life I hope I'll one day find
You'll never fade and never die
Alone and far away from God

Lost in shadow, light's denied
The path that I would take tonight
This hope I know I'll never find
Alone and far away from God
