Sorrow - Flyleaf

Sometimes life seems to quiet
Into paralyzing silence
Like the moonless dark
Meant to make me strong
Familiar breath of my old lies
Changed the color in my eyes
Soon he will perforate the fabric
Of the peaceful by and by

[Chorus]
Sorrow lasts through this night
I'll take this piece of you
And hold for all eternity
For just one second I felt whole
As you flew right through me

Left alone with only reflections of the memory
To face the ugly girl that's smothering me.
Sitting closer than my pain...
He knew each tear before it came,
And soon he will perforate the fabric
Of the peaceful by and by

We kiss each other one more time
And sing this lie that's half way mine
The sword is slicing through the questions
So I won't be fooled
By his angel light

[Chorus]
Sorrow lasts through this night
I'll take this piece of you
And hold for all eternity
For just one second I felt whole
As you flew right though me
And up into the stars
Joy will come
