lyrics

How do I take this?
Something so close to home has now been invaded
I feel the walls of my mind collapse and my chest is caving
Behind my eyes I'm waging war inside just to try and take this
Nothing I know could have prepared me for this

Unlike nothing I've felt before
It doesn't seem real at all

I saw it bare the horizon like the morning sunrise
I saw it coming but refused to believe my eyes
I felt it was right but I could not accept it
You are gone now, I just wish I could've been there

The sun that rises must later set
What has begun, has an end
I just wish I could've been there

Your sun has set
And now your star shines bright
I have a lot to learn
From the strength you had in this life
You always persisted
Through the pain and the sickness
And that strength is now my father's
I just wish I can take after you and him

A shadow has overcome me
The darkness has frozen me
I feel suddenly incomplete
This has never happened to me

Unable to move, stood still
I feel Death breathe on my neck
He's never been so close
I will never forget

I know now you're at peace

I dreaded the day this would come
I feel so lost and I feel so numb
I can't comprehend that you're gone
I need strength to carry on
Through it all you overcame
Every obstacle in your way
You taught me more than words can say
I will embody strength from this day

A lionheart

Lionheart

The sun that rises must later set
What has begun, has an end
I just wish I could've been there

I know now you're at peace
I know that you won't be void in me

I'll see you on the other side
