Behind Silence and Solitude Lyrics

Submitted by level DevilDoll
1. Behind Silence And Solitude (4:19)
you face me in silence and hope is in your eyes
unspoken yet pleading you wait for my reply
alone now i tremble in want of your embrace
let not tears fall for me, let me show the way

don't know why you have such belief in m
to justify this i'd try eternally
i will not forget what you've done for me
shed not a tear i'll be with you endlessly

how i wish i could say
what you want to hear
long ago i swore that i'd always keep you near
i know now it seems like my vow was empty then
but in time you will see i'd do it all again

i lie back close my eyes again
the dreams are there
my last chance slipped away
you'll never know i cared
i count this with reason as most of my regret
now i hope you can see that i will not forget
2. From These Wounds... (4:36)
and now i recognize your face and my folly
for longer days and nights this strange redemption'
with words you've bled me dry
now dust falls from these wounds

into the airless night i'm cast
hear me call you
i know i can't create a lie you won't see through
through in this blessed tone i am a child in wanting
a feeling not unlike regret permeates me
and with the birth of fear i am set free

from these wounds i claim redemption
from these wounds i am redeemed

in passing i recall with such vivid clarity
the soft whispering reminders of foolish notions
too late i realized my wrongs and my carelessness
now from the stone i hear you call
i can not answer

believe me my regret runs deep yet i know peace
for in 24 years i've always been inspired
the loss i do regret and still i know redemption
for you are better gone now you are set free
3. Follow (4:03)
and i see nothing i can do would change this now
this last caress i'll cherish forever
if i could i would kiss all your tears away
this emptiness can only bring sorrow

if you leave
i will follow
wherever you go i will be there for you

i believe that our destines were entwined
now i see that my fate's been decided
how i hope that in some way you'll remember me
can't you see that i'd lay down my life for you
4. Clarity (5:37)
one moment never told that i have seen nobility
my life's been molded
by that which was demonstrated for me
i'll not deny the truth
of right and wrong set forth for me
if i am half of this my simple pride will be released

never believed, deceived by the foolish
the weak embody lies

here in lies the heart of this truth
i know now what it's worth
a second chance at this
or reason to justify this gift
a simple talk or two would let me feel more at ease
six feet an earthen home in silence
the circle incomplete
5. Erase (6:15)
don't leave you said to me
and for a moment i feared i'd stay
but your plea rang hollow so i quietly
walked away
i can see you through the glass
and i wonder was it done in vain
now i'd do anything
to simply make the pain go away

if you'd have me i'd take you back again
and erase the mistakes i've made
if you'd have me i'd take you back again
and add to the mistakes i've made

i remember morning light
and a shower to clear my head
everyday a reminder of what a fool i've
seemed when i left you i'd left everything i'd
now you have shown me
i'm not the man i thought i was

i believed in you
i had faith in you
i was there for you
now i'm lost in you
6. Shading (3:51)
i've seen through the shading
and down to what's within
reaching you will feel me

lost and alone
you said i was what you were looking for
so why do i feel so empty

and it seemed so real
pulled from my grasp taken away
am i nothing in your eyes
reaching out i feel
you were pulling away, never letting me in
i am nothing in your eyes

day in day out i see you live your life again
a fool i stand here in waiting
in letters words and pictures
you profess your love to me
and to the last they were lies

the malice i should feel for you deceitfulness
some how always escapes me
and in the shading
between the words you said to me
i know i'd be left empty
7. Home To Me (6:47)
once again i'll call your name
you'll hear but not answer
foolish heart quakes with pain, mocking embrace

i push away longing, aching my company,
wither decay, this empty inheritance

looking glass shattered eyes, bleeding so softly
selfishness hollow smile, cracks my foundation

bleeding me dry, a foolish display
you walk through my halls and you tear me down
masochist some would say
but you feel like home to me
winter mood illuminates
these lasting impressions i elevate
this last thing i do regret
for you feel like home to me

silver tongue, crystal eyes, follow my piper
for my fear shield of lies, completing my failure

now my sins show the way, to lasting impressions
not for get last of days, to where i will follow

fading colors you've shown me
and your arms have led me far astray

you feel like home to me
you were like home to me
8. One Belief (4:30)
can not a man of modern day
find truth in what he's learned
of all the seventh days a waste
a fool for all the lies i've prayed yet i'm strong
i'll place no blame
although misled i've found the truth

this one belief, strength for this mortal dance
this one truth, i feel i'll be set free
this one faith, i know i'll not falter
this one belief, i know i'll be redeemed

the night once called to me
an eloquent caress she offered
but i'll not make my bed with whores
and in the place she left a harder yet much truer thing
and now by this i gauge the world

strength for this mortal dance

i feel i'll be set free
i know i'll not falter
i know i'll be redeemed
