I've stopped biting the hand i've been feeding, and rearranged my words and the hearts i've been needing. And though time always changes and leaves us behind, it's the warmth in this darkness that will always be mine. I wish you'd learn what to say, when your dreams run astray, or when we're talking or hitting a wall for it reaches the smallest talk of the shortest days and casts the longest shadow of the deepest fall. It's the old pen that keeps the new sadness fading and the endless years of hoping that I know i'll be saving.

    General CommentI appreciate you contributing these lyrics because I haven't been able to get my hands on this 7 inch, so I had no idea what the lyrics were. Now that I look at them, it seems more to just be an all out rant about bouncing back from problems and tough spots. He has learned to thrive in his adversity and he's explaining to someone else that they need to learn how to do the same. Might I add that Billy is my favorite lyricist out there because of pieces like this.
