Forgive The Silence
 

Can you give me water
I’ve been here far too long
Thirsting in this desert  
This land has dried my soul

Though I had streams and rivers
For miles and miles, 
I left them for
my barren desires  
Even amidst my thirsting
I drank the dust
Of purposeless dreams
And futile stories 

I’m the thief of my life

I gave life to distance
The warmth has turned to cold
Brought silence to existent  
And it's deafening my soul
Our once sweet communion  
Made quiet by my ways  
The feast that fed my spirit
I have left to decay

Though I heard you calling me
Through my silence, 
I reveled in
This mute existence
Where I found crippled joy
And broken sorrow
a numb today
And dim tomorrows

Though I had streams and rivers
For miles and miles, 
I left them for
my barren desires  
Even amidst my thirsting
I drank the dust
Of purposeless dreams
And futile stories 

I’m the thief of my life
I'm the thief of my life

Forgive the silence of my soul
Forgive the silence of my soul

I see the light
I hear You cry
I come
I come
