In Search of Eden Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level
1. A New Beginning (1:28)
2. It's All Good... I Got My Applejacks (4:18)
Salvage the ruins of a heart
That was left an empty tomb

"As I prepare to cross the valley of the shadow of death
I will fear no evil for you are going with me" - Paraphrase from Psalms 23
Your rod and your staff will comfort me,
keep me from harm
You give me the strength to stand on my own
I can feel the platelets inside of my blood trembling

Salvage the ruins of a heart that was left an empty tomb
Sinners forgiven is all that we ever are
It's all that we are

Give me hope give me something worth dying for
Salvage the ruins of a heart that was left an empty tomb

Hold your head high you undeserving soul
Your worth more than you know
Our hands rip from the ground
We're reaching to the sky
Don't look so defeated
There's mercy waiting to wash you clean
Our hands rip from the ground
We're reaching to the sky
Forgiveness is all that we needed
Mercy has washed us clean
Salvage the ruins of a heart that was left an empty tomb
3. Take These Hands (3:41)
My memories are haunted by your face ,
and I don't know what I am going to do if I don't get any sleep tonight.

You can rest easy tonight
knowing I will be home soon.
Close your eyes.
Don't wake up
You'll sleep where you make your own bed

These street lights flicker faster than ever
and these road lines are what's keeping me together
but these words you've thrown at me are so confusing now
all this reckless abandonment is what's been leaving me breathless
and your recent actions have proved that you were never worth any of this

how many times have I told you to drop the burdens that are weighing you down
so take these hands and and they will carry you

you've made me the culprit when I overlooked your flaws
now look their backs are turned

my memories are haunted by our fate
and I don't know what I will do
if I can't get sleep tonight
my memories haunted by your face
and I don't know what I will do
if I cant get sleep tonight

how many times have I told you to drop the burdens that are weighing you down
so take these hands and and they will carry you

the recent thoughts of everything
have been exploding in the air surrounding me
I've tried so hard to piece everything together
but gathering everything that shattered right in front of me
is exhausting all my efforts to care

how many times have I told you to drop the burdens that are weighing you down
so take these hands and and they will carry you
4. Huh? I Thought I Ordered A Large (3:28)
Only you could take me away from everything that we both knew I needed
but someday you might need me
as much as I needed you

you wept as you fell into someone else's arms condemned
and I'm constantly thinking that if we would change things
then we would be together
Because together I know we could be stronger now
now that we know what were getting ourselves into
are you ready for what happens next?

I've used all your pictures
to fuel the fire
that burned everything down

Damn I knew that you thought what you were doing was worth this all in the end
but living our love through letters it never worked
this distance is tearing me from you
this distance is tearing us apart

I will stay strong 'til I see you again
Hold on I will be there soon
5. The Healing Process (0:54)
I didn't realize what I was losing in my life
What was I thinking?
What have I done?
I am so lonely here

In the process of healing is accepting the fact that you're gone
6. The Tin Man Ain't So Tin Anymore (3:37)
The first steps to healing was admitting that I was wrong
The way to recovery is accepting the fact that your gone
I'm hurting but I'm learning how to deal
This is killing me
But the fight for air gets easier

There was a time when you were my oxygen
When you looked me in the eyes
I realized the air was getting thinner these days
As you slowly slip away

You couldn't break what was broken in the first place

Why do you keep wishing for things that you know will not come true?
Live and let die the things we swore would keep us alive

This wasn't love it was loving the thought of not being alone

The first steps to healing was admitting that I was wrong
The way to recovery is accepting the fact that your gone
I'm hurting but I'm learning how to deal
This is killing me
But the fight for air gets easier
7. Some Build Cities (3:26)
Brother!
You won't fight alone
How much blood would you shed to save our life
I will always be there for you
We will never taste the agony of defeat
We will rise on the wings of victory
You and me
Brother, you will never fight alone
The key to survive lies inside me
This is not the end
I'm coming for you
For you I'll tear down the walls of Jericho

We've never been closer to victory
Do not let up until their blood has reached our knees
I think its time that we reclaim what's rightfully ours
We will tear down the towers that hold our enemies to the stars
We will never taste the agony of defeat
We will rise on the wings of victory
Together we will tear down the walls of Jericho
8. You Got Served (3:24)
Tell me why you don't believe in me
You said that I never had a chance
But I'll make my own destiny
I'll prove you wrong
I'll show you what I can become

Just open your eyes and see everything that you have left behind
A wise man once told me "Only you can your dreams a reality."
But I'll be more than you know
He said my younger years were for making mistakes like you
Did you know that I won't forget that you have turned your back on me

Open your eyes and see what you're leaving behind

Just open your eyes and see everything that you have left behind
Thanks to you I've realized only you can make your dreams a reality.
I'll be more than you know
I see my younger years were for making mistakes like you
You know that I won't forget that you turned your back on me

A wise man once told me to leave you behind
Know that I won't care that you won't be there when I get home
9. You Can't Tie A Ship To A Single Anchor (Or Life To A Single Hope) (4:08)
We're going down
Like the bow of a battleship
Lost in enemy waters
Oh my God!
We're sinking!
we're sinking beneath the reef
Throw our love overboard
Feed the ocean with thoughts that keep us sinking down
Why does it feel that we're treading water here
I'll get us both out of here just give me time to plot out our escape
When I look to the sky why does it feel
That the stars are always crashing down on top of me
I've kept my eyes a constant North for so long
I'll anchor this sinking ship and get us safely to shore
Time wont wait

but I will
Until love restores our life
WHEN MY WORDS FAIL MY MUSIC SPEAKS
You are my drug, my burning addiction
My heartbreak my healer all in one
You are the sea of beautiful bliss
That I always get lost in
You are my faith
When I am afraid to take a breath and dive
You are the arms there to always catch me every time I fall
Time wont wait but I will until love restores our lives
Don't throw our love overboard
feed the ocean with thoughts that keep us sinking down
I am not afraid as Long as you're here with me
10. The Eyes Of A Deceiver (3:27)
You are only as good as you've made yourself out to be today
So, should we think back on everything that you said?
You're just an angel that fell when you broke your wings
bitch, you won't learn how to fly again
Liar! you're such a liar

Your eyes don't hide the thousands of lies that you think have disguised you
Your eyes don't hide the truth anymore

The fictive words of your witty tongue will be the rope that gets you hung
I always knew you were full of lust on envy
What hurt the most is that you lied to my face

Your eyes don't hide the truth anymore
(Nice try telling lies through the teeth of your smile)
Your eyes don't hide the thousands of lies that you think have disguised you
And girl you're highly mistaken if you think you're breakin' my heart this time around
The fictive words of your witty tongue will be the rope that gets you hung

The fictive words of your witty tongue will be the rope that gets you hung
What hurt the most is that you lied to my face
11. The Ballroom Floor Is Empty... Let's Dance (3:19)
I could've danced with you all night
but your eyes were like an empty ballroom floor
I could've said a thousand words
but to me I feel you closing your hearts door

I miss the way you use look me in the eyes
I miss the way we use to dance all night
so take my hand
we can mend us together
You and I, just you and I

There's a love that will last forever
And it starts tonight?
yeah, It starts tonight

I was so afraid that you and I were disappearing
but I want my touch to make you feel loved once again
You stole my heart from behind a wall that I've building up for so long
I need you now more than ever
I don't want to wake up from another nightmare all alone

Our love will lead me back to your heart and bring us home.
