[featuring Dallas Green]


All along, I've tried to erase this pain.
I persevere but it's always the same.
After all, that's how I'm told you are meant to feel,
But I refuse to believe this is real.

Listening to the sound of surrender.

So many times, I'm lying awake at night.
Still searching for your face in the pale moonlight.
Vacancy is looking back with a hollow glare.
I realize you were never there.

Listening to the sound of surrender.
Listen to the sound.

I don't know where to begin.
I've searched, I'm digging within.
All that I need is to be there standing by your side.
If I could just hear you speak.
I feel the tears roll down your cheek.
Forever searching for a way to turn back time.

Once again this pain has taken me in with open arms and a tender kiss.
All alone I wondered what I've done wrong to feel this way.
It seems its always the same..

Listening to the sound of surrender.
You're here with me, your face I'll see forever.

I don't know where to begin.
I've searched, I'm digging within.
All that I need is to be there standing by your side.
If I could just hear you speak.
I feel the tears roll down your cheek.
Forever searching for a way to turn back time.
Turn back time.
I'm longing for a way to be by your side.
I wish I could begin to cleanse myself of sin
and finally walk away from this pain that's always in my life.

I don't know where to begin.
I've searched, I'm digging within.
All that I need is to be there standing by your side.
If I could just hear you speak.
I feel the tears roll down your cheek.
Forever searching for a way to turn back time.
