Shroud 04:28
No one hears you when the lights go out No one hears you when the tears roll down All these words but the page is bare all these shadows and a deep despair I hear you… I feel you… you're not alone please take my hand I hear you... I feel you… please help me to understand it's always darkest when the clouds roll in they're weighing heavy as your hope wears thin the stars are shining and you're not alone You wear a veil of misery You wear a shroud of suffering I hear you crying in your sleep I want to hold you close to me to calm the screaming in your head no pain let me in Someone hears you when the lights go out and I will hold you when the tears roll down All these fears but a hand is near no more shadows or a dark despair I hear you… I feel you… you're not alone please take my hand I hear you... I feel you… please help me to understand it's always darkest when the clouds roll in they're weighing heavy as your hope wears thin the stars are shining and we're not alone You wear a veil of misery You wear a shroud of suffering I hear you crying in your sleep I want to hold you close to me to calm the screaming in your head no pain let me in
