These Years

lyrics

Tonight when we ride,
Through this onset with all this regret.
Frail and cold Is the story told,
When my broken soul takes a backseat,
Burn alongside the fire where I hid my fears,
Wondering what these years have taught me,
Have taught you now.

When all is gone,
When my time has come,
Will I lay to rest all the things that make no sense.
Will I find peace in the silent space?
Between my tongue and the words I dare not say.
You might wonder what I'm trying my best to say,
With these hollow prayers that walk beside me everyday.
All I ask Is for some peace of mind,
The joy of the moments that are too far to find.

Take away golden glory,
It only weighs me down,
Puts me in debt to the ones I'd rather crown,
As kings of a kingdom that is as broken as you and as I,
And as I’ve learnt with time,
That fears I did once hide are the ones that must be faced,
Or I'm no better than my face.

To let dead weight go,
Is the hardest we all know,
My heart held on to all those years for hope,

For love is strong,
But it will take you down,
First you must learn to love yourself,
Then love the ones you found.

Tonight when we ride,
Through this onset with all this regret.
All I ask Is for some peace of mind,
The joy of the moments that are too far to find.
