I know I’m strong
that I can carry on
I just need a little reminding sometimes

I feel no shame
that I can carry pain
I know it’s only a tribute
to what’s is no longer there

and I’ll wait for you
It’s all I ever do
and I’ll break through
I promise this to you

These hands are mine
but they can be so unkind
for reaching out for something that’s
not there to find

Your love has changed
It always waxed and waned
It’s left me holding on
and hoping you’ll return again

and I’ll wait for you
It’s all I ever do
and I’ll break through
I promise this to you

    MemoryThis is my favorite song from this now broken up band. It's heartbreakingly beautiful and I once had a strong understanding of it in my life so it helped to know that I wasn't alone in the feeling.
