Sigh no more my heart weep no more my eye
Sing some more my crow, and lay me down to sleep
Lonely in pain and alone if this night I die
Holding on to the promises I swore to keep

I have been taught to live, and endure my pain
I have learned to embrace it, to hold it within
I know it will consume me and drive me insane
One day I will lose, and my pain will win

I am Strangled by fate and drained by hope
And this everlasting night have drained my strength
Every breath I take only tightens the rope
In these nights of mine of no earthly length

One day, my pain will break this cage of mine
One day it will enrage and set me free
That day I will accept and won’t say I am fine
That day I will confess what they can clearly see

But dear Lord, of you I beg and ask
That then you would show mercy on me
By taking what is yours within this flask
Dear Lord only you I can hear my plea

And when I am no more make them sing these words
This poor soul’s nightmares have finally slept
Acceptance he found not, so please accept him dear Lord
He was good enough to be loved, but he was not kept

But if I was blessed and this night I survived
My hopes my dreams shall be revived
The sun is up and the birds are singing loud
flying in the sky around the glowing clouds
the light will always come after the darkest hour
another chance is given and I will embrace it’s power
