lyrics

Sunlight steals into the room
Illuminates the dusty treasure
Piercing grudge and clearing gloom
Reaching deep into the center

Walls all tumble to the ground
Take a chance and look outside
Silence breaking into sound
Reveal the things we tried to hide

This is all that’s left to us
Put the pieces back together
See the picture whole once more
Before the curtain falls forever
This is all that’s left to us
One last chance to set things right
Cover over wounds with words
Before the coming of the night

All the wrongs now stand forgiven
Feeble in the light of day
Little cuts the cost of living
Where the words got in the way

Speak at last the truth we hold
These words are now a legacy
Watch the miracle unfold
As anger fades to clarity

This is all that’s left to us
Put the pieces back together
See the picture whole once more
Before the curtain falls forever
This is all that’s left to us
One last chance to set things right
Cover over wounds with words
Before the coming of the night

Silence falls and tears are shed
Shadows lengthen and take flight
Disaster freed the words unsaid
But loosed them into endless night

This is all that’s left to us
Put the pieces back together
See the picture whole once more
Before the curtain falls forever
This is all that’s left to us
One last chance to set things right
Cover over wounds with words
Before the coming of the night

An olive branch takes root at last
We are the life that we create
Can we learn now from the past
To speak before it is too late
