She had a hole in her heart.
Caused by the days of frustration.
When things were falling apart.
She left the pavements of patience.

Down the depths where the pale lights won't shine.
Straight to the bottom of an old gracious ocean.
Wade through the waters and the myths of our time.
Break with the curse and the creeks of constriction.

Enter new tides to swim against.
Endless new tides to swim against.

Come back to the surface.
Rise up like a star.
To beat the beast in your basement.
And feed the feast in your heart.

Standing on the edge of an ancient divide.
Hanging on the hands of a luminous angel.
Flying through the skies where the sun hits your eyes.
Making your way to higher grounds.

Into the light to shine again.
Endless new light to shine again.

Find those curves in life.
Try to resolve weary times.
My lonesome star.
Go climb the stairs to higher grounds.
That take you home to feel the vibe .... again.

Where the best hearts go.
I'll take you near.
And gracefull eyes, will break your fear.
