Lyrics

Make Me Whole

Unable to move forward
Unwilling to look back
I?m locked within the prison
From the mirror staring back
An incompleted entity
An unfinished soul
Long always longing
Find the pieces
Make me whole

That our lives were so connected
I never realized
But now that yours is gone
Mine?s been compromised
The lessons that I?m learning
Exact a growing toll
And leave me always longing
Find the pieces
Make me whole

And so I reach out to you
But my arms are far too short
I call to you each evening
Though your name impales my heart

The answers you took with you
To the questions I must bring
So now deep into this song
I reach for hope to sing

I sing this song with anger
I sing this song in tears
And hope that in its singing
This song allays my fears
For I must go on living
Though I?ve heard death bells toll
And end this endless longing
Find my pieces
Make me whole
