Verse 1

Turned away from the Gates of Heaven,

Tainted with the black of a raven,

All alone, I didn't know,

Where I was supposed to go.

Verse 2

Fallen in the eyes of my old self,

Too far gone to even ask for help,

I didn't have the answers

To questions that turned to scars.

Pre chorus 1

They said that time will heal,

And that I'll just rebuild

The castle in the sky,

When the tears in my eyes

Abandon me for good.

But now I've understood.

Chorus

When the breathe catches in your chest,

And the North wind starts to head west,

It's not life taking one more test.

Time won't put your troubles to rest.

Only you can tame the tempest,

Only you can tame the tempest.

Verse 3

Tucked away in the depths of despair,

Out of touch with the heart that cared,

I struggled with my own change,

When my spirit felt estranged.

Verse 4

Fallen from my own once sacred oaths,

Turned into the beast I used to loathe,

I never knew what to do

When the ground caves, I felt through.

Pre chorus 2

They said that time will heal,

And that I'll someday feel

That old flutter of hope,

In a heart tied with ropes

That don't break easily.

But it occurred to me,

Chorus

When the breathe catches in your chest,

And the North wind starts to head west,

It's not life taking one more test.

Time won't put your troubles to rest.

Only you can tame the tempest,

Only you can tame the tempest.

Bridge

And I was told by a friend,

Nothing ever really ends.

So I stopped waiting for the times to change,

And the tempest felt like home, ain't it strange?

Chorus

When the breathe catches in your chest,

And the North wind starts to head west,

It's not life taking one more test.

Time won't put your troubles to rest.

Only you can tame the tempest,

Only you can tame the tempest.
