The sky lingers grey
As the evergreens sway
And the wind sweeps on thru
With all my pictures of you
Now I’ve got nothing,
And nothing to lose.
So I stand with my feet at the edge
My toes hang over, I live on this ledge
As dark falls around I stand so still
Spreading my arms and fighting my will.
I gently close my eyes and pray
As the soothing breeze cools my face
My cheeks still red with contempt and desire
My souls a wreck and my hearts on fire.
The depth of the storm is creeping in
As the icy rain caresses my skin
I see the rivers rush from the mountaintop
And now my choices can’t be stopped
The sun bares the weight of my life begun
As I breathe it in, snow falls on my tongue
Yes I have seen this view before
There is only one last step to God’s front door.
