The Day

The Day

Cold, a word freezing my eye
Blindness is at my door, it steals my time
I am the one who will hold your heart
You do not go unheard, the man you need warms you
You will not give up and you will have your choices
And you will have your ladder to the stars

You are not alone in this space
You are not alone in this space
No more reaching out to the sun

Hold your hat, hold your hand, you will see
As one, we will stand, and we will hold the torch
I will tell the night to loosen it’s grip on you
Dirty hands in my pocket, washed by faith
Looking for the one, in front of my face
I feel your skin, it screams to me

You are not alone in this space
You are not alone in this space
No more reaching out to the sun

The next time, does not exist as we are now
Breathing fire with your hands, to the last one
The click of metal, you feel your safety
Warmth is the fresh smile across my face
I untied my knot and loosened up my light
Hold your cup, hold your pain, you will see

You are not alone in this space
You are not alone in this space
No more reaching out to the sun

The Day you called out, lifted the stars to my soul
The moments of time knew what was taking place
My fingers reached out and sliced the air
I said “I will not let go, I’m right here”
Hold on to my heart and let’s dance in the room
With a sharp turn, a gentle push, back into my life you are

You are not alone in this space
You are not alone in this space
No more reaching out to the sun

I do not live in a dream, wheels turn and turn
I am right here with you and the night is yours
Luck only matters with us, the horse is not blind
Giving up the ghost as I have seen his bed
Waking you up I did, with a rush of the rusted sun
Sunsets and neon temples will call upon us

You are not alone in this space
You are not alone in this space
No more reaching out to the sun

Endless roads on which we will find ourselves
Silence will look back in the distance
Grin she will,
I rolled my dice, played my cards
The move was right as the city lights are soft
You doubled down, in my direction
Your words are in my pocket, I am able to see

You are not alone in this space
You are not alone in this space
No more reaching out to the sun

Hold your cup, hold your pain, you will see
Hold your hat, hold your hand, you are not alone

The Day
