Dust

 

Lyrics

I wish that I could read your words
From the walls that hold your hurt
Hear your joy and your pain every night and every day
I wish that I could read your words

I with that I could hold your hand
All across this tear-stained land
In your heart to be known and to never be alone
I wish that I could hold your hand

Take this life
And wash the tears from their face
And the blood of my disgrace
Oh Lord take this life away from me

Take this life
And all the memories replaced
With these broken dreams now wasted
Oh take this life away from me

Take this life
And wipe the thought of me away
With the dust of my decay
Won’t you take this life away from

Then the stars would awake shown across this old lake
And reveal a new life where the shore isn’t fake
There’d be sung this refrain and there’d be no more pain
All the grays will wash out and there’d be color in rain

How this would be…
Oh how this should be…

Take this life
Won’t you take this life
Won’t you take this life…
