Heartache is a cold place and winter was my birthplace
Alone, I can only run
Sorrow is a freed space when tears have a good taste
And dry in the heat of the sun

Glory is my weakness when all I wants to seek it
To see that bright light shine
Failures are for reasons, my pride is left conceding
In loss, all the glory is mine

Pain is more than just a fight
It breaks and builds my might
Faith, man, it’s more than just my words
It begs my soul to turn

Hope it’s more than just a plea
It’s a light I choose to see
Love, man, it’s more than just a state
It’s a true and selfless place

Lonely is a cold place and laughter is a mute case
And my breath is all i hear
Emptiness is bottomless when all I pour is hopelessness
Alone, I can only fear

Trying is a helpless plea if giving up is all I need
To feel my days are done
Righteousness is meaningless if suffering can steal its bliss
And joy goes down with the sun

Pain is more than just a fight
It breaks and builds my might
Faith, man, it’s more than just my words
It begs my soul to turn

Hope it’s more than just a plea
It’s a light I choose to see
Love, man, it’s more than just a state
It’s a true and selfless place

I’m not giving up
Giving up on this life
I’m not giving up
Giving up on this fight

    General CommentThis song is really special to me because of the deep meaning of the song. It's really about that total enraptured darkness or emptiness you can feel when you are really down or depressed.

    The singer, creator and writer of the song, Dave Wilton, said this in an interview about the song: “I wrote it for a family member who struggled with deep depression and was in a barren place void of relationships,” Wilton said. “I’m happy to say that situation has turned around and they are experiencing a life filled with love and healthy relationships.”
