This decaying flesh is coming back to life
Reanimate me, give me a chance
And I’ll be right here
When the sun hits the sea
Watching these waves wash the pain away
And it will radiate so brilliantly
That we can keep pushing on and get on with life
Cause we deserve it

Now I know that the worst part is behind us now
Onward and upward
We take flight on bruised and battered wings
We soar above our clouded thoughts
Never looking back
We can regain a sense of balance
Gone so long

This decaying flesh is coming back to life
Reanimate me, give me a chance
To reason with the odds
To pick myself back up
Regain a balance that’s been gone so long

Now I know that the worst part is behind us now
Now I know that we’ll get on with life
Cause we deserve it

I fear that I am ordinary just like everyone
To lie here and die among the sorrows
Adrift among the days
For everything I ever said
And everything I’ve ever done is gone and dead

As all things must surely have to end
And great loves will one day have to part
I know that I am meant for this world

My life has been extraordinary
Blessed and cursed and won
Time heals but I’m forever broken
By and by the way
Have you ever heard the words
I’m singing in these songs?
It’s for the girl I’ve loved all along
Can a taste of love be so wrong

As all things must surely have to end
And great loves will one day have to part
I know that I am meant for this world

And in my mind as I was floating
Far above the clouds
Some children laughed I’d fall for certain
For thinking that I’d last forever

But I knew exactly where I was
And I knew the meaning of it all
And I knew the distance to the sun
And I knew the echo that is love
And I knew the secrets in your spires
And I knew the emptiness of youth
And I knew the solitude of heart
And I knew the murmurs of the soul

And the world is drawn into your hands
And the world is etched upon your heart
And the world so hard to understand
Is the world your can’t live without

And I knew the silence of the world

Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening

Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound’s the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

Another turning point, a fork stuck in the road
Time grabs you by the wrist, directs you where to go
So make the best of this test, and don’t ask why
It’s not a question, but a lesson learned in time
It’s something unpredictable, but in the end it’s right
I hope you had the time of your life

So take the photographs, and still-frames in your mind
Hang them on a shelf in good health and good time
Tattoo’s of memories and dead skin on trial
For what it’s worth, it was worth all the while
It’s something unpredictable, but in the end it’s right
I hope you had the time of your life

I dreamed that you had died
I’m forever alone
I’m weakened, I’m frightened
This place’s about to change
Things you said to me
Believe and the things you might find
Will turn into a march

I stand alone and breathe again
I won’t stop until this is through

And I can’t wait to see the sunrise again
(It’s moments like this)
I am what you’ll never be
To better what I am
You won’t hear lies from me

Feel the sudden aches
Time to get moving
Getting somewhere with no directions
I swear to you it will never be the same
It’s astray, but the road lies open
Leaving all deaths behind

I stand alone and breathe again
I won’t stop until this is through

And I can’t wait to see the sunrise again
(It’s moments like this)
I am what you’ll never be
To better what I am
You won’t hear lies from me

Erase darkness from my mind
Last remaining night
From here to everywhere

I stand alone and breathe again
I won’t stop until this is through

And I can’t wait to see the sunrise again
(It’s moments like this)
I am what you’ll never be
To better what I am
You won’t hear lies from me

Weep not for roads untraveled
Weep not for paths left lone
‘Cause beyond every bend is a long blinding end
It’s the worst kind of pain I’ve known

Give up your heart left broken
And let that mistake pass on
‘Cause the love that you lost wasn’t worth what it cost
And in time you’ll be glad it’s gone

Weep not for roads untraveled
Weep not for sights unseen
May your love never end and if you need a friend,
There’s a seat here alongside me
