lyrics

For The Sun

Here I stand alone, With open eyes that seek the glow,
Atop the tower of stone. The raven’s eyes reflect the light,
Of the candle burning bright, As we stare into the night

Waiting for the sun.

Inside of me what is this, Are these dreams I’ve confessed?
The poison burns me still, As I’m waiting for the sun
How could this moment have transpired? To flood my heart with my desire, I’m a slave to the filth and mire, I’m unworthy of your sun

But I am wanting, And I am waiting…

My love is waiting for, For the sun,
To chase my darkest fears away. So I don’t have to run

The hands about my wrist whisper the hour is late,
I gaze up at the moon to ponder, if not to wait

Is it destiny that’s chosen? Or is karma the one to blame?
The oracle has spoken; the bones cast across the plate

Heavy are the hands that shuffle the cards of fate,
Heavy is the hand that dealt you the jack of spades
Heavy are the hands that paint the sky with gray,
Heavy is the hand that wipes your tears away

My love is waiting for the sun to chase my darkest fears away

Here I stand alone with open eyes that seek the glow,
Atop the tower of stone. I see my life flash before my eyes
The sun, the moon, the day and the darkest night,
And though it all seems so mundane
I cannot close my eyes to look away.

Don’t go searching for it.
Close your eyes and look away.

My love is waiting for the sun.
