Lyrics Edit

Lights:

I never meant to wither,

I wanted to be tall.

Like a fool left the river,

and watched my branches fall.

Old and thirsty I longed for the flood to come back around

to the cactus in the valley, that's about to crumble down;

Both:

and wipe the mark of sadness from my face,

show me that your love will never change.

If my yesterday is a disgrace

tell me that you still recall my name.

Owl City:

So the storm finally found me,

and left me in the dark;

In the cloud around me,

I don't know where you are.

If this whole world goes up in arms,

all i can do is stare.

And i won't fight for anyone,

until you move my hand;

Both:

and wipe the mark of madness from my face

show me that your love will never change.

If my yesterday is a disgrace,

tell me that you still recall my name.

Lights:

Oh, here, in the shadow,

here I am;

and I need someone by my side.

Both:

It becomes so

hard to stand

and i keep trying to dry my eyes.

Come and find me

in the valley;

and wipe the mark of sadness from my face,

show me that your love will never change.

If my yesterday is a disgrace,

tell me that you still recall my name.

And wipe the mark of madness from my face,

show me that your love will never change.

If my yesterday is a disgrace,

tell me that you still recall my name.
