lyrics

Start a fire,
Let it burn my old shirts, tattered and torn,
That somebody else must have worn.
I’m so tired of being down in the dumps
On a sunny day- it makes no sense to live this way.

Let it end soon.

Images still remain of the haints living in my brain,
I can feel them fly through my veins.
I can’t stop e’er to think-
The future it terrifies me, some days it’s just so hard to be.

Let it end soon.

Every hurt we have felt will live on in the homes we build
Sometimes old wounds cannot be healed.
Resentments that I hold will add on to my shoulders’ weight-
I cannot be consumed by hate.

Let it end soon.
