Track Name: Darkest Days
And you, you were the field
You were the forest, you were for real
You were the song I sang when no one was around
And you, you were for real
You were the one I saw concealed
You were the one I searched for, forever in the dark
But then you were caught by the wolves, the tools of the world
Pestle and soil. You were the one who found the future after all
And you, you were the fruit, you were the first one that I knew
You waved goodbye, and that finally broke my heart

Now nobody knows where the darkest days go
But they know that the future is here
And nobody knows where the waterfall rolls
But they know that the ocean is near

You’ll be alone, you’ll be alone, on the darkest days
You’ll be alone, you’ll be alone, on your darkest days
You’ll be alone, so far from home, on the darkest days
You’ve ever seen

And you, you were the eye, the eye of the storm, hurried and warm
Headed for shore, with destruction in your wake
And I, I tried my best, to batten the hatch
Close all the windows, remember the latch
Then fall to the floor and watch our dreams decay
And I, waited till dawn, to sound the alarm, close off my heart
Watch as you leave, then lock those maps away
And the storm went on its way, but it took you away
Tangled and grey
You were alone when you found your darkest day.
