lyrics

PHOENIX (SLEEP WITHOUT DREAMS)
Written by Trinity Demask © Excaligurl Music (BMI)

She was a wide-eyed believer, the one who took you to heart
Her faith was infectious, enough to convince even you,
At least at the start
But love is a savage emotion, and you were never so brave
When the shadows grew tall and you feared you might fall,
You put that girl in her grave

Oh, to sleep without dreams when the wind is rising
Under wings of flame
Oh, to rest in the silence ‘til the rising sun whispers my name
Out of the ashes I came

The bottom’s as dark as December and cold as the wages of sin
But hard as I tried, I just couldn’t find regret that my heart took you in
For I willingly drank of that darkness, so you would not bear it alone
Thinking the tangled could never be torn
I bled out your fear with my own

Oh, to sleep without dreams when the wind is rising
Under wings of flame
Oh, to rest in the silence ‘til the rising sun whispers my name
Out of the ashes I came

You stepped away from the edge
And turned as the night stole my voice
You missed the lesson, the moment of redemption
When you breathe because it isn’t a choice
You climb without looking when your devil’s behind you
You run ‘til you’ve run out of road
And in the end you find that there isn’t one
I just thought you should know

Oh, to sleep without dreams when the wind is rising
Under wings of flame
Oh, to rest in the silence ‘til the rising sun whispers my name
Out of the ashes I came

Oh, to sleep without dreams when the wind is rising
Under wings of flame
Oh, to rest in the silence ‘til the rising sun whispers my name
Out of the ashes I came
