Afterglow

Here I am
Lost in the light of the moon
That comes through my window

Bathed in blue
The walls of my memory divide
The thorns from the roses
It’s you and the roses

Touch me and I will follow in your afterglow
Heal me from all this sorrow as I let you go
I will find my way when I see your eyes
Now I’m living in your afterglow

Here I am
Lost in the ashes of time
But who wants tomorrow?

In between
The longing to hold you again
I’m caught in your shadow
I’m losing control
My mind drifts away
We only have today

Touch me and I will follow in your afterglow
Heal me from all this sorrow as I let you go
I will find my way, I will sacrifice
‘Til the blinding day when I see your eyes

Now I’m living in your afterglow
When the veils are gone
As I let you go
As I let you go

Touch me and I will follow in your afterglow
Heal me from all this sorrow as I let you go
I will find my way, I will sacrifice
Now I’m living in your afterglow

Bathed in blue
The walls of my memory divides
The thorns from the roses
It’s you who is closest
