And so this world is strange
told me it'd never change
left me in the sorrow burning in the sun
Surrounded by the wolves
the pounding horses hooves
told me not tomorrow faster if you run

... let it go, won't you let it go
Here I'm a shaking, now I'll awaken oh…
Deep in the slumber, feet buried under tow
Now its wonder, I'll get a chance to grow

Alley in the night
ready for the fight, I made it through
something that you said, leaving me for dead,
I know it not your fault its true

How could I be here, standing in the clear
right next to you? right next to you?

but If this world would give
me shelter, let me live
I don't mind it never telling me the truth
And If the world would end
oh my beloved friend…
I'll say its forever with a lie to you
