lyrics

I had a bad dream
It lasted two years
It was the frightening sum of all my tiny fears
I was a stranger
You didn’t know me
I became the something you could never see

You be the sparrow that flies
I’ll be the lion the roars
I’ll be the one who will cry when you can’t cry anymore

My heart kept beating
I couldn’t hear it
I was night and then the sunlight disappearing
It was a long time
But it seemed easy
I let go of all the things that I’d been keeping

You be the sparrow that flies
I’ll be the lion that roars
I’ll be the one who will cry when you can’t cry anymore

And now it’s over
The song is ending
I ripped the seams of all the dreams that I’d been mending
I was a heartbeat
Or just a sentence,
I was everything and nothing but the past tense

You be the sparrow that flies
I’ll be the lion that roars
I’ll be the one who will cry when you can’t cry anymore
I’ll be the one who will try when you can’t take anymore
I’ll be the one who will cry when you can’t cry anymore

See what can a word do but bring me back to you.
