Grant this wish
That I may rest
In your shadow
That dims my flame
Trembling in hope
To cease this breath
In your cold embrace

Let me go
Leave this space
Never reach
So I can breathe
This heart of plume
Back to life
Till it needs you again

Run from me
Forevermore
And do not turn
Or you will see
A shade of pride
In your eyes
Misguided your brain

Set me free
Another day
When I am brave
And we can give
Our false beliefs
A second chance
To feel this ache

Wait with me
As we burn
Our measured air
And you can see
The beast in me
Is just a myth
Of your darker days

Grant this wish
That I may rest
In your moon
That breeds my rage
Gleaming in hope
To free this pain
From your shifting grace
