Under The Falling Sky

lyrics

looking out my window tonight i see a fading sky
the light is leaving the day behind but it’s firmly in my mind
today gave nothing more to my heart than yesterday
but it was how i took it in that humbled my weary soul
for in every hour there are countless things to behold
there is kindness in a smile and a tale behind all tears
you can slip into a fairytale and find a hidden truth
you can look in a lie, gaze over the walls it built
under the falling sky you can find hope
use what you hold within to live the story you wrote

every soul, even my own is fighting some kind of war
protecting their heart from hurt with words that bruise and scorn
and me i’m just kinda nowhere right now, not lost nor dazed
i’m watching the shadows move through the glass hallway
i have dreamt a thousand dreams over a thousand nights
some came through the darkness while others died with the light
and what felt so right today tomorrow could fade away
i’m not gonna judge you but i gotta do it my way
under the falling sky you can find hope
use what you hold within to live the story you wrote

there will be a final time for everything wrong and right
all that rises with a dawn must fall with a night
my heart was built for love and through time i gotta stay strong
i gotta accept the other side of the penny i wished upon
there is beauty in a moment, hope inside a dream
there can be a crushing truth in the light of reality
but looking in my hand i see what i truly hold
i've got all the answers i just gotta take control
under the falling sky you can find hope
use what you hold within to live the story you wrote

for every word i’ve spoken, the clever and the absurd
will one day lose any meaning or feeling they were given
there are times when i’m lonely, feel lost and confused
it was in those moments when i really needed you
but nobody upon this earth is under any command
to act in a way that isn’t according to their own plan
i for one am bound to the story that i’m writing
nothings gonna shake me, not the shock of the lightning
under the falling sky you can find hope
use what you hold within to live the story you wrote

this place where i stand today isn’t my final stop
time won’t stand still, i can’t stop the clocks
and a single step won’t take high above the clouds
but i will ascend, i will wear my crown
in the hours of blissful sleep my heart never misses a beat
but i am easily deceived when i dare to believe
under the assault of time not even love can last
but i accept the challenge to hold on for as long as i can
under the falling sky you can find hope
use what you hold within to live the story you wrote

the moon is full tonight and the stars are shining above
i feel so lucky to be playing the game of life and love
and through the passage of time i’ll stroll, never looking back
the images of the world will guide me to every dawn i see
the whisper of expectancy could easily distract my mind
but i just gotta stay focused, learn to enjoy the ride
a story of love can be written by the turn of a page
and whatever lies ahead i gotta stand up and face
under the falling sky you can find hope
use what you hold within to live the story you wrote
