When the dragons grow too mighty
To slay with pen or sword
I grow weary of the battle
And the storm I walk toward
When all around is madness
And there's no safe port in view
I long to turn my path homeward
To stop awhile with you

When life becomes so barren
And as cold as winter skies
There's a beacon in the darkness
In a distant pair of eyes
In vain to search for order
In vain to search for truth
But these things can still be given
our love has shown me proof

    General CommentExcellent song about how, at the end of the day, no matter how crappy life is, he's got this girl who is awesome and that's all that matters.

    They made a typo. It's Madrigal. No "n."

    General CommentIt's not
    When life becomes so barren
    And as cold as winter skies...
    It's
    When life becomes AS barren
    And as cold as winter skies...
