I thought you'd come back at least I prayed
The romance has been dead for years
But i've been too afraid to dig the grave
relief support never came
memories carry me through the day
of when we were kids
and angels came to watch us play
close my eyes just for tonight
the sun still sleeps and when she wakes
a movie that plays in my mind
remembering you helps me survive
every day a re-run of the next
I promised to stay by your side
that all would change i can't complain
another victim of the game
maybe love will find us again
for there is always tomorrow
sincerely till the end close my eyes
just for tonight the sun still sleeps
and when she wakes you'll be a memory

    General CommentThey are the most amazing hardcore band I have ever heard. I still haven't gotten a chance to see them live though. It does make it even more amzing that they ARE a Christian band, when most of the listeners are of a secular world. Most the time Christian bands get labeled as "lame" just because they are God inspired, and never get the chance to voice their music because of the prejudices of the blind secular world.
