lyrics

"Glow"

I live on memories of a feeling
But my memory is so deceiving
repeating promises I still believe in
writing words for those who were leaving so long ago
So long ago

Trying hard to remember what I felt like
those words that almost made you melt down
those eyes that burned a hole right trough you
those days when no one really knew you
And the pain
so sovereign

The scraps and fragments I can recall
the punches and needles are not enough at all
To make my mind glow
To make my mind glow
To make my mind glow
the way only fire bestows

The street lamps are my friends when I'm escaping
from myself and the world that they are shaping
My inner fire turned into a lightbulb
I shy the sun to tell myself that it's still shining bright
my inner light

Chorus

I try to live a life that I remember
play a part that turned into a memory
I search for clues of greatness in my past life
looking forward has never been my strong side
In the past
is all that lasts

The scraps and fragments I can recall
the punches and needles are not enough at all
To make my mind glow
the way I used to
The scraps and fragments I try to grasp
the words and their meanings are running right through my hands
To make my mind glow
what do I need to do
