I feel the reins in my fingers,
I feel them all just slip away.
I open my eyes,
And I fall behind.
So I run towards the stables,
But the colts have bolted now.
And I watch them fly,
Out into the night,
Out into the night.

I felt a shiver in my ribcage,
And I could feel the fever grow.
No more hanging on,
But I can’t let go.
I jump from sweat in the night, love,
But I swear you came to me,
Just as you always were,
And may you always be.

Now I’m just a broken parable,
Of values I used to hold,
Somewhere I lost it all,
But, babe, I’m dying to be born again.
Lost footsteps in the snow,
Down the paths we used to roam.
Don’t say it was only love,
Don’t say I didn’t love enough.

Not a ripple in the water,
Not a whisper in the wind.
Awaken the evening,
Hoping the sun will shine again.
But my colts they have all gone now,
And all that I could not contain.
Though the seasons may change,
Love is all that remains.

Now I’m just a broken parable,
Of values I used to hold,
Somewhere I lost it all,
But, babe, I’m dying to be born again.
Lost footsteps in the snow,
Down the paths we used to roam.
Don’t say it was only love,
Don’t say I didn’t love enough.

Now I’m just a broken parable,
Of values I used to hold,
Somewhere I lost it all,
But, babe, I’m dying to be born again.
Lost footsteps in the snow,
Down the paths we used to roam.
Don’t say it was only love,
Don’t say I didn’t love enough.

Did I not love enough?
Did I not love enough?
Did I not love enough?
I’m dying to be born again.

Did I not love enough?
Did I not love enough?
Did I not love enough?
I’m dying to be born again.
