Have Heart

Inside my darkest hour, my heart beats still
Inside a memory, I find, a surging chill

Came over my bones like winter cold
Came to a place in my head, nobody knows

I saw the solstice, claim its place in the sky
I saw you, the disconnect, and I did fight

With every breath I have, I'll struggle for you
With every passing day, I feel more confused

All at once, the trip seems less like a twilight
All the places we’ve been disappear in a night

So bad I wish to hold a rose while life wills
So many colors we have shown, and red kills

The precious painted expression when you grin
The mysterious mindful intensity when you sin

Call on prayer when demons begin culling
Call my name when living means nothing

Know storm fall mirrors the mood of home
Know I love you deeply, and your not alone

For sane reasons, I give my lung and heart
For insanity, and thought, I give much, not

Plain as day we can stand and weather rain
Plain as people, we are who we are either way

Where will the light come in, when it is ready
Where will we be when our hearts stop beating
