I fell asleep in the silence
Before the street fights the fire

Free in the world that you've given
Lay in the sound
The water still calls
Still calls

Afraid of the dark that surrounds me
Hide in the dirt of the ground
Free in the wind that surrounds me
I'm not afraid to sleep in the night
Not afraid
To sleep in the night

Free like a bird of the holders
Holding the wake of the sun
I know the road that you send me
I know the way it leads to home

Real like the bones in my body
Real like the flesh that covers the grave
It's real
Like the flesh
That covers
The grave

Wait for the guards that you send me
Before I'll show myself
Wait for the storm
That comes to me
Maybe I'll just change my mind

Plea for the will of forgiveness
I'm not afraid to say I was wrong
I was wrong
Maybe I won't
So long
So long

    Song Meaningthis song is about being in a relationship and then getting back into it, and the power struggle involved. "i know the road that you sent me" there is only one option, you can do want your other says, and you probably like it in a way, but it's so restricting. but you know that you may have been "so wrong, so wrong," so there's no choice, you submit to their will to get that love that you need.

    i wish i could meet hope sandoval, her lyrics are just too direct. straight to the heart
