all As I Lay Dying lyrics

94 Hours
94 hours of regret for me to realize what i held
unfading beauty, not just a face
i held its innocence within my heart, now i wonít let go
the torment of your eyes has awakened my soul
the pain of a momentís time will forever beg your forgivenessback to top
Falling Upon Deaf Ears
the sound of silent voices surveying my thoughts
regularity defining perfection
neither sorrow nor contentment
whispering emptiness, frail words collapse
my weight only stirs the ground
how long can i hold your hand as you walk over graves
you search for tears of compassion
yet find the comfort of winter
reassurance dead like the falling leaves
losing hope in your unchanging ways
all of my strength cannot save you
if you are unwilling to help yourselfback to top

forever your eyes will hold the memory
i saw your heart as it overtook me
we tried so hard to understand and reason
but in that one moment i gave my heart away
that perfect breath where my mind lay beside me
and all i knew was what had overtaken me
with no explanation i am comforted by inability to understand
when i wake from this dream will you still be here
will your smile still open my heart and leave me transparentback to top
can you understand my meaning hidden in the roses around my eyes
i want you to know how much it means to have you in my life
your love brings me close again in this instance when our worlds collide
the wire of eternity twists around us
i can feel this river rising, moving up my back
some things never change
some things never go away
i could never forget you
and i will never be the sameback to top
Distance Is Darkness
the contingencies of a day unravel my senses
and now your distance is darkness
my hope has been beset by your absence
i decay from inside
underneath it all there is still life
despite it all there is still loveback to top
Behind Me Lies Another Fallen Soldier
i want to bring you all that is in my heart
i want to give you my everything
but i've failed you so many times
how can i stand here before you
when i begin to steal what only belongs to you
i am able to bring you nothing that isn't already yours
i am so ashamed of what i ever called my own
take what i have, take these broken remains
what can i give you that you don't already deserve
you laid down your life when i refused to give mineback to top
what is this world, what is this we've created
in the burdens of this life i cannot rest
this world means nothing
everything we hold will pass away
with a void of completion comfort will ever fade
i long for this wind to cease
we once held undying devotion
now dead to our thoughts, undefined like our loveback to top
A Thousand Steps
we climbed a thousand steps without a single imprint
this drowning regret will die, forgotten like my past
moving bodies lie in rest
carried by each otherback to top
The Beginning
i see who you are and who else can compare
i meant what i said, i promised to stand by your side
until the end, that's where we begin
from here to eternity we begin understanding
it is our hearts that define what has meaning in life
some will ask how can this be
but it was you who made me feelback to top
Song 10
one night opens wounds and words utter pain
the truth cannot breathe a one in your soul
you've hid hearts and songs as long as you recall
his kind words just fall near your feet
with their last air, all they want done is to be heard in your sweet ears just onceback to top
The Pain of Separation
how can i bear this any longer
arms stretched out only to hold separation
take me away
i'm dying inside, emptied before you
take me into your arms
i will fight until the day when i will see
sight given to these blind eyes
when will i be taken from this life
take what is yours
you deserve more than my lifeback to top
did you ever see me or could you even see at all
i looked at your cold white face, so still, so empty
yet i knew you were at rest
much more comforted than i
what else could i find to replace who you were
it was the carefree unrestricted love that you never meant to give
you never had the choice
it was your innocence
it was part of who you were
it was the comfort of a friendback to top
