lyrics

It’s the sidenote on the page
Where truth can hide its face,
But we both know what really happened here
Before love was disgraced.

Did we search for what we’d find
Out of fear we had tried to hide?
The flames that served to only purify
Contrast with the night sky.

Oh, I see the ghost of what we had become.
Tell me everything.
Tell me everything.

Look for beauty in farewell,
And in stories that words can’t tell.
Honesty always resides behind the eyes;
Know I’m wishing you well.

It’s the years that robbed our will,
Sorting through fantasy for what’s real.
Decisions made on the paths we take
Leave us standing still.

Oh, I see the ghost of what we had become.
Tell me everything.
Tell me everything.

Think of the time we lost becoming like silhouettes.
It’s in the faith misplaced in sacred statuettes.
