So i will pave this road til glory
Sets our broken spirits free
From every cross soaked nail pours endless rain
With tears no eyes should see
But they could fill our highest ocean
And the rivers in between
But every blade that flowers
Must grow then drown
With love our cruelest scene

So with a wonder and a wild desire
I will crawl from under every weight
With a wonder and a wild desire
Bless the day it was I shared your name
Yesterday forever speaks your grave

Hail the shower from the broadside
To the heavens down below
Draw one last breath from your fanning ship
Sink the hunger in us all
Shake the hand that speaks of freedom
Kiss hate one final bow
Till each twilight falls then rests till dawn and tomorrow's never sleep

So with a wonder and a wild desire
I will crawl from under every weight
With a wonder and a wild desire
Bless the day it was I shared your name
With each word forever speaks your grave

And of the fool we shall not mention
That depraves the cries of youth
Drag not your strength from government
But from the voices they abuse

So with a wonder and a wild desire
I will crawl from under every weight
With a wonder and a wild desire
Bless the day it was I shared your name
Yesterday forever speaks your grave

Only time will tell when this rain of hell, shall wither in defeat
Separate the bread they forgot to share, till the milk still left to feed
Though this body aches then disappeared into the ground, our seeds
He said, "I'd, I'd always comfort thee"

So I will pave this road to glory
Which is the broken spirit's soul
Resignate with perfect reason
Shut life's last gloomy door

So with a wonder and a wild desire
I will crawl from under every weight
With a wonder and a wild desire
Bless the day it was I shared your name
With a wonder and a wild desire
I will crawl from under every weight
With a wonder and a wild desire
Bless the day it was I shared your name
Yesterday forever speaks your grave

    General CommentI have been in love with this song since I first heard it. It just is SUCH an amazing song, and I can't possibly believe that anyone could hate it. OR Flogging Molly, for that matter.

    General CommentI would say this song is mostly about perseverance, and staying strong. Still has quite a romantic touch to it, as Delta observed. ^^

    General Comment"Drag not your strength from government

    Favorite line. This is basically my motto. I love it.

    I totally agree with reiko57 about the resistance idea--this song is all about having an idea and the passion to go through with it, to restore what is right.
