I've left it all behind to move forward Cut the ropes and removed the chains Smiled and sang and held nothing I had nothing to feel everything
There's so much to hold to when I'm alone How do I escape from the prison I hold the key to I gave my life for this, where do I buy one now I've wanted a life so empty, my arms are heavy from holding to nothing
Golden light leaks out of the broken clouds I see it as I approach the top of the hill It takes me back to the time when you said you were so broken, you didn't think anybody could ever love you Well, I did I loved every broken part of you I got to see the parts of you that you so often hid away, waiting for someone to care enough to pry you open And I did Not all the way But enough to realize you weren't this uncaring, heartless person I thought you were You have a heart Such a beautiful, loving heart that has felt such relentless heartache that you...

Where have you been hiding your love, for it does not show It no longer happily shines with the sounds of our laughter It no longer sweetly glows to the tune of our song What could I have done differently? Where did I go wrong? I'm sorry you feel like you're the broken one One day we will find the sun
