lyrics

lyrics by Ethan Nickerson
music by The Mines

This is a moment, I’ll give away
Completely open, to what you say
I’ve seen the ocean, I’ve felt the tide
I won’t hold back, and I will not lie again...

I’m done with safe and sound and ordinary
My back is aching from the load I carry
So when I don’t know who to be,
And I don’t know where I am
My purpose will unfold for me,
In a song that never ends

The root of darkness, it continues on
It grows in shadows, and lives on wrong
But in my heart there’s, a hope to carry on
The world grows dim around me
The loud sounds fade to soft...

And then I’m gone...

I’m done with safe and sound and ordinary
My back is aching from the load I carry
So when I don’t know who to be,
And I don’t know where I am
My purpose will take hold of me
In a song that never ends

‘Cause so far behind my eyes is He
So deep within my soul,
A place that man will never see
That the winds cannot control

And still I’m aching for my home, my life
Beyond the stars beyond the dark, of night
To feast my eyes upon the soul of light
Until then dreams will be my hope, my sight
