Give It Our All

When the night winds are driving on

Be the one to light the way

Shining like a lighthouse from the sea

 

The grains of soul engraved in my ribs

Scars carved meticulously on our limbs

The stars envy our companions

The earth quivers beneath our feet

 

A hand touches and is lost

The raised come at a cost

Faithless in the events we see

Yet somehow tuned to you and me

 

I ain’t made for a rivalry I could never take the world alone

I know that in my weakness I am strong, but

It’s your love that brings me home

 

We stumbled in the dark

Wondering where our lives had gone

Emerald eyes embraced in blue

Fires dancing in different hues

 

I fell, I rebelled, I did it, all of it for you

A gesture of love and faith

Perpetually sound in our road and chase

Righteousness enveloping me in its warmth

 

We’ve lost everything, and now you are going to bring him back

A plea made to the Heaven above

Repeated in its longing

Black and broken wings keeping me whole

 

And on those days when the sky begins to fall

You're the blood of my blood

We can get through it all

Based on the song "Brother" by NEEDTOBREATHE
