lyrics

Did I hear you falter? Or stumble on the phone?
Led to the altar – you never shifted from your throne.
No expectations, but my emotions were resigned.
You think that’s funny? Your absolution made me cry.

You left me branded and stumbling like a fool
The mark of Cain on my intentions when I broke your golden rule
Your silence icy and your heart as hard as stone
Your tears stinging: cut me to the bone

But stare into the darkness and dare to conquer your demons
And there, turn back to the start, follow your heart
And you’ll learn you’re still part of the world

To be blameless but I let weakness drag me down
You know I’m learning: I don’t expect you to be proud.
Weighed by the chains, the ways that I was wrong
No scripture comfort in the verses of this song

But stare into the darkness and dare to conquer your demons
And there, turn back to the start, follow your heart
And you’ll learn you’re still part of the world

Count the days and mark them on my soul
Learn the taste of tears, the sounds infatuations toll
No regrets but my ambitions unredeemed
Don’t take pity: your absolution sets me free

But stare into the darkness and dare to conquer your demons
And there, turn back to the start, follow your heart
You’ve travelled so far just to stare
Into the darkness and dare to conquer your demons
And bear the pain of your scars, accept who you are
You can still be a star
Just shine
