Flatlands - Pope Jane

I pray you see someday the trust you broke in vain
But right now you're so blind, you won't hear
I made you my home, then you left me all alone
The victim of the wandering in your bones-

CHORUS-
I am the Flatlands, and the storm is coming in
There is no refuge from the hail when it begins
And I pray for the sun to come, before I wear to thin
...But that's a long time from now.

I pray for you a path, to help and guide you back
To everything you were before they came
They sold you a bill of goods, just like I knew they would
And they left you by the road to choke on shame-

CHORUS-
I am the Flatlands, and the storm is coming in
There is no refuge from the hail when it begins
And I pray for the sun to come, before I wear to thin
...But that's a long time from now.


-Bridge-
I tried to take your hand, but you left me in the end
For better or for worse, your demons reigned
If you could only see what actually was me
Instead of all the worry and the pain
And we would never be the same

I pray that you forgive yourself for how you've lived
Slaying those around you with their own sin
Now you comprehend what it's like on the other end
The daggers that you threw now pierce your skin-

CHORUS x 2
I am the Flatlands, and the storm is coming in
There is no refuge from the hail when it begins
And I pray for the sun to come, before I wear to thin
...But that's a long time from now
That's a long time from now.
