lyrics

Verse 1

I was born with the moonlight on my back

Old memories filling in for the faith I lack

There’s a peculiar sound of ringing in my head

As it fills up quickly with the words left unsaid

Prechorus:

The wreck between my ribs and the quiet on my lips

There’s a darkness that descends with the moon eclipse

Softer than the night and silent like a thief

Footsteps all adrift and searching for relief

Chorus:

This old lullaby will be gone by the morning light

For the lonely daughter born from sacrifice

And her sweet voice will have faded

And all that they hold sacred

Will become marks upon my skin

Verse 2

I was running with the city chasing me

Old nightmares hounding but I want to be free

He held my hand and knew there was a secret chord

And I knew I wanted to know more

Prechorus:

The glowing of my palm and the quiet of his lips

There’s a darkness that descends with the moon eclipse

Softer than the night and silent like a kiss

And I spent my whole life wanting this

Chorus:

This old lullaby will be gone by the morning light

For the lonely daughter born from sacrifice

And her sweet voice will have faded

And all that they hold sacred

Will become marks upon my skin


Bridge:

But here we stand now

Feet on the ground now

And the sky is torn open

Let nothing be left unspoken

And let the night

Let the night end


Chorus
