Forsaken

You are not forsaken
Although you cannot waken
So quiet your saddest song
In your darkest moment, you are strong

You’d rather close your eyes
Then try to believe
They don’t know why you hide
Still I can see, your silent need

When the sun comes out
A little too brightly
And the hours bring about
The tears you’re fighting

Don’t you see?
No you don’t see
Because you won’t breathe
You won’t let it be

You are not forsaken
Although your heart keeps breaking
For some old time melody
In your darkest moment, you long to be

You say you’re never free
Too much was taken from you
You ask me why believe
When the chains could still restrain you

A heart forsaken
I pray to waken…
