I don’t know what to say
Every prayer goes away
And you can try to hold it close
Father, Son, Holy Ghost

You can crawl on your knees
Through the glass of apologies
And you are what you become
Bloody wine, contradiction

For the wrong and for the right
But you cant escape the night

Feather heart measures right
And heavy soul carries fright
Through the streets and the cold
Carry young, bury old

For the wrong and for the right
But you can’t escape the night
For the love and for the light
But you can’t escape the night

So you try to hold on
But the thread of all your love
And you will let go
Oh you will let go

Every heart has a beat
Some are soft, some are sweet
And of all the things you know
Every heart dies alone

For the wrong and for the right
But you can’t escape the night
For the love and for the light
But you can’t escape the night

    General CommentI'm not really sure what this is to be about really but I love it, first heard it on One Tree Hil and I just had to google it. Maybe it's about being really down and trying to pull you're way through it all. Or maybe it's about someone who has done something bad and they want forgiveness, they want to make it go away and so they try so hard but they can't, it's still there in their head. Or maybe it's simply about the loneliness of the human situation-everyone dies alone.
