My arm extended towards Your flame
With a candle in my hand
All my efforts were in vain
As the melted wax
Hardened over the pain
My prayers I rehearsed
But it only made things worse
All You want is conversation
Not verbose manipulation.
"Today if you hear His voice do not harden your hearts."
Through suffering we enter;
Through afflictions we'll arrive.
Long, my soul, for conversation

The shame of a child's heart that longs for one more hug
The shame of a boy's heart that wonders what he's worth

Can you replace all that was taken?
Like snow in a warm climate
These affections are out of place
I thought these long arms were designed for an embrace
Can you teach me love without restraint?
During the tragedies in life I called out to You
During the victories in life I called out to You
The reflection on the mirror distorted more and more
And as our feelings waver we're commanded to endure.
Oh, as our feelings waver we are yearning for the cure

My arm extended towards Your flame
With a candle in my hand
All my efforts were in vain
As the melted wax
Hardened over the pain
My prayers I rehearsed
But it only made things worse
All You want is conversation
Not verbose manipulation.
"Today if you hear His voice do not harden your hearts."
Through suffering we enter;
Through afflictions we'll arrive.
Long, my soul, for conversation

I will take your hand dont worry.
I AM, listen when I say:
Take your tears, faithful.
We'll sow the promise that with joy
We'll reap the suffering.
We marched down the path that led so many to their apathy,
As the winter that makes love grow cold came so violently.
It's the temperature.
It's the temperature. and its dropping.
It's dropping so low.
Despite this long winter
There before us stood an eternal flame.
It never goes out.
It will always stay the same.
The warmth of Your flames is touching my skin,
The death that precedes the new birth is a cold painful sting.
