lyrics

Ignorance gives way to lies
Those words, they tore me up inside
Who knew that he could be so fragile

It's all a mess of shattered dreams
I live the novel's recurring themes
As bombs tick away all the while

But through it all your warmth is in the air
Pale blue and amber gold, I feel you there

And in a sudden flash of brilliance
You are all I see
Oh, how I long for forgiveness
Is it true that I could be free?

I seek redemption in my own eyes
I've fallen for blessings in disguise
But still, I find it all worthwhile

To try my luck and try again
Convey the message I'm trying to send
All just so I can see you smile

Poison turns to medicine
It traces where I am, as well as where I've been
And throughout all the mayhem and the din
You can't always act so masculine

Cause in a sudden flash of brilliance
You are all around
I leave behind all my diligence
Sink into your arms without a sound

Ignorance gives way to lies
Through it all

In a sudden flash of brilliance
You are all there is
