Wide Open Light

I know what it's like to be half dead
And the other half gone out of your head
Time is only mercy
Time, give me time
It's in everything we all must leave behind

You looked at me and my skin jumped from my bones
I knew I would never be alone
Bring me your day's dust
And if you're staying here, you'll be staying with me I trust

Silence always picks up where it left off

If tomorrow starts today
We'd best be on our way
There's no time to waste
Only you restore my faith

Mistakes I am destined to repeat 'til I get them right
Walk with me into the wide open light
