"Atlas" as written by and Claudio Sanchez....
We carried on, unnoticed, thinking that
All dreams were ours for the taking
And now, dear love, we've found ourselves
Back at the start of it all
So starting incomplete

Only now I've come to this moment in my life
Bits and pieces to a puzzle, with no regrets
But if I had just one chance left
I'd hold onto her close with
What little confidence I have
And make no mistake, as your life's surely
About to change for the better
Now on your mark, get set, clock starts to count
'Cause boy everything's about to go down

So sleep tight, little Atlas
'Cause when your daddy goes off, just you know
That you're the weight of his anchor
The love that is guiding him home
The love that's guiding him home

I've had my share of leaving this retreat
But never did it once feel anything like you, you see
And if there's one good thing that comes from my away
It's that you won't be anything like me
Oh, and so, better for it you will be

So sleep tight, little Atlas
'Cause when your daddy goes off, just you know
That you're the weight of his anchor
The love that is guiding him home
The love that's guiding him home
The love that's guiding him home
The love that's guiding him home
The love that's guiding him home
The love that's guiding him home

So sleep tight, little Atlas
'Cause when your daddy goes off, just you know
That you're the weight of his anchor
The love that is guiding him home

So sleep tight, little Atlas
'Cause when your daddy goes off
Just when your daddy goes off
That you're the weight of his anchor
The love that is guiding him home

There's no running away from what's been done here
Will you sink with this ship or will you burn it down
Now give us the man that you've been hiding
'Cause this is your, this is your life, this is your life now

There's no running away, there's no running away
Will you sink with this ship or, will, will you burn it down
Now give us the man that you've been hiding
'Cause this is your, this is your life, this is your life now

This is your life now
This is your
This is, this this is, this is your life now
