Take My Hand (new rough mix)
Lyrics
The dream awakes you in the night,

The one that happens all the time.

Some distant memory you've repressed,

A ghost that haunts your mind.

Those childhood days you'd cower on your floor,

So petrified of what the nighttime held in store.


(chorus)

Take my hand, take my hand let's run away,

Don't believe the words they say,

They'll only tear you down and rip your heart out,

Hear my words, there's no joy to be found here,

Take my hand, we'll disappear,

So your heart can finally know what loves about.


You were battered by their words,

Left trembling all alone.

Thank god I found your shattered soul,

Before it hardened into stone.


They can't touch you while you're wrapped up in my arms,

As long as I'm right here, they'll never bring you harm.


Take my hand, take my hand let's run away,

Don't believe the words they say,

They'll only tear you down and rip your heart out,

Hear my words, there's no joy to be found here,

Take my hand, we'll disappear,

So your heart can finally know what love's about




I cry just thinking 'bout the shame they've made you feel,

How bruises from so long ago could never heal,

Those tainted evenings you'd pretend to be asleep,

That sun-filled morning when you found the strength to leave.


Take my hand, take my hand let's run away,

Don't believe the words they say,

They'll only tear you down and rip your heart out,

Hear my words, there's no joy to be found here,

Take my hand, we'll disappear,

So your heart can finally know what love's about.
