Still alive she cried
To face another day
With all the years gone by
The luster tends to fade
Her pain will not subside
I feel so cold inside
Still alive she cried
To face another day

Its cold out tonight
As she reached for her shelter
Like the hunger inside
So savage it felt to her
Every word spoken yes
Mist it would follow
Her eyes like the windowsill
Sunken and hollow

I know there was a time
When laughter was divine
And kindness seemed to fill the morning days
Like the ebb and flow of a moonlight tide
So like a grain of sand
The grain is washed away

So alone she cried
Spreading deep inside
The silence made its way
Gets stronger every day
The sadness grown in size
Her pain will not subside
So alone she cried
Spreading deep inside

From mother’s womb to earthly tomb
Cradle or the grave
Embraced by life, embraced by death
Cradle or the grave
(embraced by life, embracing death)

So far from home
Please take me home
Through the eyes of a child
Where this pain is denied
To a happier time
Full of dreams and belief that the world could be mine…
