Before the Dawn

from by Borrow Tomorrow

lyrics

Well I focused on the dreams that you once shared with me
Long before the ashes did fall
I can feel the burn as they brush against my skin
Though too numb were you to feel at all
My expression was steady, my fists were clinched tight
Like a fighter engaged in a bout
Though prepared as I may be, you know that it’s not me
Whose survival is in doubt
There were few reasons left to rise
Her palette of wonder predictably dry
Speaking as softly as the morning
Passes by
Don’t come to me for happiness, for help, or for truth
We both know you’d rather do it on your own
To revel in your bitterness and starving for love
While you ignore everything you’ve grown
I know what I am and I stray from what I’m not
Choose wisely my times to protest
Don’t suffer more than you’re bargained for
The world takes care of the rest.
There were few reasons left to rise
Her palette of wonder predictably dry
Speaking as softly as the morning
Passes by
We awake before the dawn
Feel the daybreak, try it on
Confirming with each breath I take
It’s better to leave than to be the one that stays
There were few reasons left to rise
Her palette of wonder predictably dry
Speaking as softly as the morning
Passes by
