lyrics

I’m back home again and everything’s new
Nostalgia creeps in; oh, I never knew this town like I do now
Weary roads, tired streets wait for me here
The place are the same, they’ve all got new faces

I’m tired of feeling like this
Feeling remiss because I miss you
I’m not as strong as I thought
The battle fought but lost

I’m a ghost in this home, a ghost in these bones since you left me alone
It seems to me that time’s been moving free not following what we’ve defined it to be
Because this year flew by like a blur, though that might have been because of her
Here’s to you, my fallen star, may your road not be hard

Yes it’s true we’ve come so far; may your heart not be marred
Oh - Oh - Oh -
No we won’t be the same; feel that pain, feel that shame
Our - Our - Our -
Paths were crossed, stars were lost, feelings tossed aside
You threw your punch, I threw mine, your cutting words deride
We did - Oh, we did - Though we did have our fun
It’s over now, and we’ll never be the same again

The script may stay the same
But we all can change together
So we’ll go our separate ways
Maybe someday we will meet again with different names

Fire in her eyes and fire on the horizon
Ashes and embers in mid-December
As this bridge is burning down and down, the world spins around, around
My heart’s in my throat; feels like I’ll choke

Guide my heart my hands my mind
Fix the wrong in me that you find
When I’m overwhelmed by the light and sound
You keep my feet on the ground

When all we’ve built is gone; we’re left feeling wrong
I can hear Your call and there’s writing on these walls
In my heart that you’re tearing apart
And cutting out these strings that tie me to these earthly things

So I’ll fall into your arms and trust that you won’t do me harm
I’ll let go and in my life Your love I’ll show
Losing control
You found Your way to me and I’ll give You my soul ‘cuz you make me whole

Guide my heart my hands my mind
Fix the wrong in me that you find
When I’m overwhelmed by the light and sound
You keep my feet on the ground

Guide my heart my hands my mind
Build a fire in me, deep inside
Shine your light across the earth
Only you can give us worth
