about

Martyrdom comes easily to a girl with a saviour complex when faced with an impossibility, pouring love onto hard baked sun-beaten ground. The ideal, the illusion, the promise anyway.

lyrics

Shadows
hide you
bleeding
silent

Weighed down
love drowned
raging
empty

My tears
stone ears
Your fears
Hands tied
who cried?

Sundown
night falls
blackness
thunder

Waves crash
wind roars
heart pounds
sinking

My tears
stone ears
Your fears
Hands tied
who cried?

Dreaming
reaching
someone
smiling

Blind eyes
open
kind words
spoken

Come home
I’m here
no more
searching

Safely
guarded
love me
set free

My tears
fog clears
Your fears
Hearts tied
eyes dried
