Hold Your Breath

Would you come heal my sorrow
Just for tonight?

For when the dawn breaks tomorrow, I fear I must fight
I know my time is borrowed, by the look in your eye
This valley is hollow, without you by my side

 

Will you hold your breath until I return?
Save a place by the fire, I’m watching it burn

 

Blessed assurance, this penance is mine.
As I walk through this forest, I feel your heart beat in mine.
Oh what a fortress, this loneliness binds.
I long to be with you! Our love intertwined

 

Will you hold your breath until I return?
Save a place by the fire, I’m watching it burn

If those tears stain your cheeks, love, you know they’ll be spurned.
I’ll send ‘em down to the dust, dear, when I return

Your lips end my atrophy
