the sun, the air, the faithful crashing of waves
carefree comforted knowing eyes watched over me
even now i taste the salt on my lips being dried by the sun
an ocean limitless, taking me back to better days
seems so far away.
somehow, somewhere i've lost a part of me
got caught up in this twisted place and lost simplicity
the things i've seen have tainted everything
i think i gave up living.
when life is stained can it be cleaned?
want to know... if i can
set aright a life that's gone so wrong
in a way, start again.
if not what is left?
i can do it on my own, i could long ago
i'm sure that i have tried
the sun, the air, the faithful crashing of waves
remind me of a child that i'd love to be again
only now finding comfort and peace in trusting a God i'd even more that i might see
and even more than better days to trust again

    General CommentIn this song, Mark is trying to say that he is sorry for how his life has gone. He realizes that he has lost his innocence. He has "lost a part of me(himself)" and understands that he cant have that back. He says that if he could, he would clean himself, but he is tainted and only God can clean him.
