I believe it was you who came to my door
I said I’d met you before
It was only a lie to make you feel strong
Now I long for those days

I could fight you forevermore
or let this be the ending for sure
I decided to sign no one will win
It’s a battle forevermore
It won’t go away like before
We have chosen to live like enemies
We have no future in this

Countless nights with my churning thoughts
Now I bid you farewell
I will take back the spells
Erase the joy
Still I long for those days

Mary, can you forgive me, I never meant to hurt you.
You were so young
You were so free
You were the one

Mary, there is no reason with your soft touch and your tender voice
You were so young
You were so free
You were the one

And all I ever saw was trouble
I was totally blind to you

I am, you said
The bearer of all good things
I didn’t know how to take this
so I left you
Sail away into the ocean and the ocean will hide your tears

Mary, can you pretend you never knew me at all
I was so young
I was so wild
Trying to be free

There is nothing more to say
What king of mother leaves
their child this way

I never thought that I’d belong
I never thought that I would find someone
A shelter, some place to call home
A story told, a story never ending

It’s always been so many turns
So many rivers needing crossings
This could be the final stop
The destination for the two of us

Now it’s all so clear
Now it’s all so real

Like the day before the first dawn
Reminding us, calling out to us what we’ve become
Mountains raising to the sky
Seeing through the mist, seeing through the mist
what we have lost

All I ever saw was black
A distant memory of something out there
A vague thought that this might change
That someday everything would turn around

For this reason I’ve lost the fight
For this reason I’ve been losing the light

I could have been the one you loved
I could have been the one you loved eternally
I can sense a spark, I can sense a spark in there somewhere

Three roses in my hands
Three roses in my hands – I bring them to your grave
When the moon is up to dance, we dance all night

I hear you calling me home

In the shadows I see
In the shadows I see your pale face
Tombstones in a row
Tombstones in a row I know which way to go

I ask you through my tears
Can I hold you one more time
In my arms before you leave
You said your love could never die

I know you gave it all your best
I wont forget

Let me love, let me sing, let me dance with the King
All the world for us to see
Let me give, let me live, my life by your side
You will always be the one

Let me stay through the night
I will never ask you why
All the stories still untold
we will never hear them out

I know you gave it all your best, I won’t forget

There will a morning after
There will be time for laughter
But for now, but for now…

There’s a fight tonight at the River-Crossing Café
He turns his head my way – touché
I hear my blood hammer loudly in my veins
I am letting go of all sense
Like I am losing my restraint

Tonight I’ll fly like a swan, I take to the sky
My wings so heavy, my neck stretches and bends
Tonight I will be released of burdens, so high
With an arrow in my heart, arrow in my heart, arrow in my heart I take to the sky

When morning hits my head with crystal clear insight
I know it’s too late to back off, I recall last night
In this very moment I feel no rejoice, still it feels like I made the right choice
I will not return

How can it feel so good to be alive
How can I strive so hard to forget

To everything – turn, turn, turn
There is a season – turn, turn, turn
And a time to every purpose under heaven
A time to be born, a time to die
A time to plant, a time to reap
A time to kill, a time to heal
A time to laugh, a time to weep
A time to build up, a time to break down
A time to dance, a time to mourn
A time to cast away stones
A time to gather stones together
A time of love, a time of hate
A time of war, a time of peace
A time you may embrace
A time to refrain from embracing

To the north is where I’ll go
To the North
When you see the lights in the sky
To the North, to the North, where the cliffs meet the sea
This is where I’ll go
When there is a new day dawning, when there is a new day here
This is my heritage, this is my home
To the North
