Our Lips

Give me the strength I need, To love you through everything
Give me the hope I need, To live again through anything
Give me the faith I need, To live through every pain
Give me the the heart I need, To love you forever and a day
 
A fool, A liar, A sinner, A killer of saints and every hope inside
I am the darkest of souls, The purest of devils without a doubt
A monster, A pariah, A soldier, A killer of angels and every courage they hold
I am the darkest of hearts, The purest of demons that ever existed
 
Everything I touch turns to gold, In my greedy hands, I stole myself away
Inside my hell, I captured my essence and bled dry the blood inside
Everything I touch turns to ash, In my burning hands, I washed myself away
Inside my tears, I poured myself into the river and fled through every drop
 
Through my burning eyes, I see you approach in all your angelic glory
The way you walk, Your hair flowing so perfectly, My heart turns inside
Through my battered ears, I hear you call my name in your angelic voice
The way you talk, Your words flowing so perfectly, My soul lives inside
 
My demons fade away, The voices fade as quickly as they came  
My devil walks away, The pain fades as quickly as it came
My hands are welcomed into yours, As you smile so innocently
Behind your eyes, I see a love my blackened heart has never seen
 
You kiss my cheek, And smile as if I told you of the brightest days imagined
You squeeze my hand, And speak as if you know of my darkest days survived
Your eyes see straight through me, As I feel myself melt before your opened lips
As our lips meet in broken embrace, My world fades away as I walk fractured into yours
