Blood Horizon

I have seen a blood horizon
Northern lights swept down into the sea
And I knew in that perfect stillness
For a moment what it feels like to be free
Well it seems there’s just no more charm in sunset
Baby now you are no longer here with me

But I will run, I will run,
‘Til my feet will not carry me
I’d sleep, I would sleep
‘Til the end of time
If it meant I would wake with no lingering empty trace
Well it seems it may take a lifetime
To forget that I ever saw your face

Well I know that the world is full of grieving
And I feel ashamed by the things that make me cry
But to say you’ve got nothing left to believe in
That’s like letting all, all the hope slip from your eye
Well I guess, I just didn’t know how to love you
Mmm baby at least, my arms reached out to try

[Alt] Don’t you see there’s no picture book prize for winning
You already win if your hands reach out to try

But I will run, I will run,
‘Til my feet will not carry me
I’d sleep, I would sleep
‘Til the end of time
If it meant, I would wake with no lingering empty trace
I will run, I will run,
‘Til my feet will not carry me
I’d sleep, I would sleep
‘Til the end of time
If it meant, I would wake with no lingering empty trace

Man it seems it may take a lifetime
To forget that I ever saw your face
