Track Name: Bring My Body Home
I've been counting stars and I've lost count
Distracted as my fear begins to mount
Outside in the dark I was alone
Looking back I wish that I had known

Now I'll tell a tale of weary hearts
Scattered broken pieces, missing parts
Hidden from the hope of pastures new
Ever locked in blackened shades of blue

When my feet met with the road
Knew it was the time to go
Though it was my cross to bear
Never could I hope to care
Searching party follows me
Finds me hanging from the tree
Bring my body home

On a brittle forest limb I trip
Swiftly kiss the earth and tear my lip
In the deepest cavern fall I lay
While away the hours of the day

Long past now the midnight hour
I wither like an aging flower
Clinging to a trusted hand
Feeling like a grain of sand
Find me face down in the lake
Pray the lord my soul to take
Bring my body home
