I saw you hangin' 'round late last night,
amidst the falling trees and stars,
there's a silence that follows such lasting grace,
there's peace even after I've been blown apart...
so they say youv've seen Hell and been burnt by its flames,
your skin glows red as a constant reminder,
but somehow you managed to grin through it all,
and I swear by this madness, god help me, I'll find you...
show me the path to enlightenment,
the one made of tears and blood and freedom,
you speak so fondly of a Lord you can't touch,
your faith gives me something I hadn't thought I believed in...
who would have known our paths would cross?
the road that I walk is dark and lonely but true,
I was ready and willing to take the cowards way out,
but instead, at the crossroads I stumbled towards you,
when my world gets noisy you offer me silence,
it's within your chaos that I find my peace,
this tension runs through me like electrified fire,
but in your presence I discover how to let go, to release,
it's a dangerous time to learn how to love,
our hands have been tied by a fickle fate,
it's your hope that maybe we'll learn from eachother,
and forgive all the people who have taught us to hate,
I saw you hanging around last night,
a weak sort of smile crept upon your face,
your confidence faltered and time stood still,
what beauty there is in fallen grace...
