Until We Surrender

Until We Surrender, Heartsounds

Guitars, Vocals, Bass, Drums: Ben Murray
Guitars, Vocals: Laura Nichol

I know I’ll see an end to this despair
But then I’m sure it’ll start all over again.
I want to know if these years have been in vain
These months spent wasting away.
Obsessing over the end of days
Or at least the impending death coming my way.
Part of me feels I’ll see tomorrow,
Yet I’m not convinced it won’t feel the same.

So take me to the place I love,
Where fears turn to fiction and dissolve
Into the space above the stars and dust and galaxies,
Too far to ever destroy me,
I’m safe from the cosmic blackened seas
Whose waves crash down on me with crushing blows of anxiety.

But sometimes I wonder if things really get better,
Or does the hand of time just beat us down until we surrender?

I’ve never been so scared of waking up
These nights just never last long enough
The sun creeps in and I deteriorate
Into a lifeless, isolated state
Of existence, I hardly exist at all
Until the sun retreats and the night falls
And the shades of grey overtake me
With sheets of armor and a shield of dreams.
