Looking through the pictures of you
The still shots filled with so much silent animation
Listening to the nothing voice from these pictures

There is so much I see
So much I hear
So much I know

Watching and waiting
Redemption from life
I lived so little before

Sometimes I feel the fear
The hours that flow into days
The days which slip into nights

So much time alone left to think
Wrong thinking is punishable
Lay my heart on the wrack twisting my own screws

Sometimes it all fades away, sometimes it all goes away
In those moments I feel free and light
In those moments I know your thoughts and feel the love

Everyday I struggle, everytime I fall I get back up
Every scrape I bitch and moan
Every hurt I dream of you making it all better

You make everything better no matter how insignificant the pain, or how trivial the joy.
You make everything louder than everything else
You make me better than I was before

Brick by bloody brick
Tearing down my wall
Getting up one more time, for you.
