You slipped from my arms, I knew you had to go
Such a heavy heart, who could hope to hold
And I know where you're going, and that's the hardest part
No matter where tonight ends, you won't escape your broken heart

Stay a while

Helpless for the words, and it tightens up the air
It's not what you deserve, it's not for lack of care
Inside of me is screaming out, I'm praying for my prayers
Distracting and unworthy of each and every burning tear

Seems insincere

Do I see God in all of this, maybe all along
It's just that we're so small, and simply not as strong
Strong like wings of silver, and feathers made of gold
To carry heavy hearts, to cover all our helpless souls

To cover all of us

Under wings of Gold and Silver sometimes we have to hide
For shelter from this bitter winter at least tonight

If it were mine to give I'd give you your own time
Turn it back or forward whatever you decide

Stay a while
winter, at least tonight

    General Commenta few weeks ago i was told that a friend of mine committed suicide. i was going nuts, and then i put on some music, it just happened to be this song. i got calmed down real fast. and i started thinking about the part
    "It's just that we're so small, and simply not as strong Strong like wings of silver, and feathers made of gold To carry heavy hearts, to cover all our helpless souls"
    and i remembered that God will always be there to help me through the crappy times, no matter what. and i felt better and now i dont cry every time i hear this song, i smile and think of my friend and his funny stupidness. thank you Stavesacre for singing songs like this one to help remind us that God will always care about us and 'carry heavy hearts' that we have. God bless!!
