you face me in silence and hope is in your eyesunspoken yet pleading you wait for my replyalone now i tremble in want of your embracelet not tears fall for me, let me show the waydon"t know why you have such belief in mto justify this i"d try eternallyi will not forget what you"ve done for meshed not a tear i"ll be with you endlesslyhow i wish i could saywhat you want to hearlong ago i swore that i"d always keep you neari know now it seems like my vow was empty thenbut in time you will see i"d do it all againi lie back close my eyes againthe dreams are theremy last chance slipped awayyou"ll never know i caredi count this with reason as most of my regretnow i hope you can see that i will not forget

and now i recognize your face and my follyfor longer days and nights this strange redemption"with words you"ve bled me drynow dust falls from these woundsinto the airless night i"m casthear me call youi know i can"t create a lie you won"t see throughthrough in this blessed tone i am a child in wantinga feeling not unlike regret permeates meand with the birth of fear i am set freefrom these wounds i claim redemptionfrom these wounds i am redeemedin passing i recall with such vivid claritythe soft whispering reminders of foolish notionstoo late i realized my wrongs and my carelessnessnow from the stone i hear you calli can not answerbelieve me my regret runs deep yet i know peacefor in 24 years i"ve always been inspiredthe loss i do regret and still i know redemptionfor you are better gone now you are set free

one moment never told that i have seen nobilitymy life"s been moldedby that which was demonstrated for mei"ll not deny the truthof right and wrong set forth for meif i am half of this my simple pride will be releasednever believed, deceived by the foolishthe weak embody lieshere in lies the heart of this truthi know now what it"s wortha second chance at thisor reason to justify this gifta simple talk or two would let me feel more at easesix feet an earthen home in silencethe circle incomplete

5. Erase

don"t leave you said to meand for a moment i feared i"d staybut your plea rang hollow so i quietlywalked awayi can see you through the glassand i wonder was it done in vainnow i"d do anythingto simply make the pain go awayif you"d have me i"d take you back againand erase the mistakes i"ve madeif you"d have me i"d take you back againand add to the mistakes i"ve madei remember morning lightand a shower to clear my headeveryday a reminder of what a fool i"vebeenseemed when i left you i"d left everything i"dknownnow you have shown mei"m not the man i thought i wasi believed in youi had faith in youi was there for younow i"m lost in you

6. Shading
