Here I Stand

Sometimes you have to save yourself...

Words slice like a double-edged knife; my heart cannot endure
So watch me bleed, tainted blood pouring from my soul 
I tried to save you, but it was all in vain 
You cut me down, to ease your own pain 

Now here I stand, wounded, broken and alone…
Here I stand, yearning, bleeding; I've come undone… 

Broken mirror on the wall, watches me tumble as I fall
Refracted light blinding me to a truth that's buried deep
A shattered reflection helps me see 
The strength that’s left inside of me 

Now here I stand, wounded, broken and alone…
Here I stand, falling, flailing; I've come undone… 

While you were fighting your war, I was fighting for my life
Wounded soul bared, harsh reality dealing it a bitter blow 
Slow demise on mortal plains 
Spirit drenched in eternal rains 

Now here I stand, wounded, broken and alone…
Here I stand, forgiving, forgiven; no longer undone… 

A glimmer of light still shines behind my broken eyes
Window of hope reminding me how to love myself again 
Time has come to leave this all behind 
Time to get you off my mind 

You’ll only die a dream. I am my own salvation…
This is my Heaven. Watch me stitch my own wounds…
