Verse 1

Your words so strict and stern

Makes this heart of mine burn,

But with the ashes my love's mixed,

And from it rises a phoenix,

Chorus

With new strength to cope

With what you have on next day's cards,

With new found raw hope

That lets me stand and take your darts.

Verse 2

Your stance so cold and calm

Makes this heart of mine numb,

But my love and care's stronger still.

I only want to help you heal,

Chorus

Find new strength to cope

With what you have on next day's cards,

With new found raw hope

That lets you stand and take the darts.

Bridge

And when you're bleeding in dark hue,

I stand there ready with the bandage.

But you keep me away from you,

I have to tend to it from back stage,

Chorus

With new strength to cope

With what you have on next day's cards,

With new found raw hope

That lets me stand and take your darts.

Chorus

With new strength to cope

With what you have on next day's cards,

With new found raw hope

That lets me stand and take your darts.
