And yet you're still laying the rose
That wont bring back the dead
their gone, there not coming back
She's gone, she's not coming back

When the carnage came I couldn't speak her name
Breathless and stuttered was the sound
Step down, step down, step down and bleed alone
Step down, step down, step down and bleed alone

And silence sleeps alone
And silence sleeps alone
Day by day
We're learning to stand tall
These bruises and feelings
Show us we're not alone
Just let your voice be heard

They cling to their hearts in defence
Their grip can't last for ever
They'll weaken as your fists
Lay contrast to their's

Dismember the memories in vain
Dismember from back which it came

This is what we hold dear
Now we stand tall
Now we stand tall
You'll sleep alone
And silence sleeps alone
And silence sleeps alone

Day by day
We're learning to stand tall
These bruises and feelings
Show us we're not alone
Just let your voice be heard

Day by Day
You'll sleep alone..
You'll sleep alone..
You'll sleep alone..
You'll sleep alone..
You'll sleep alone..
You'll sleep alone..
You'll sleep alone..

Now we stand tall
Now we stand tall


And he held in his hands what thought was love
And when he looked in her eyes
All he saw was flashing lights and butterflies
And then he realised....

I lost you.
This is what we hold dear
Like butterflies
Holding back
We'll unfurl
Wings of ourselves

never again will i speak these three words to you
never again will i speak these three words to you
never again will i speak these 3 words...

I lost you.
Never again.
