Don’t try to call
There are some bridges that burn
Beyond recognition beyond repair
Don’t say you’ve changed
There are some forces that turn
Beyond recollection beyond my stare
When I feel the cold in the dark
I know you’re there

Long ago I was a woman in pain
A woman in need
I ran to you
Long ago I did not understand
You were making me bleed
I ran to you
When I feel the cold in the dark
I know what you do


I will crawl through my past
Over stones blood and glass
In the ruins
Reaching under the fence
As I try to make sense
In the ruins

I know your heart has held its own fear
It’s perfectly clear
What they did to you
In my heart it’s the screaming I hear
I won’t let them come near
Since my love knew you
When I feel the cold in the dark
I remember you


Night after night
I am carving it out

I will carry it down to the waterside
Night after night
I am hearing the sound
Of wings that come beating
I will not hide
When I feel the cold in the dark
I will know why


But if I am to heal
I must first learn to feel
In the ruins
I will crawl
