I will wander 'till the end of time torn away from you.

I pull away to face the pain.
I close my eyes and drift away.
Over the fear that I will never find
A way to heal my soul.
And I will wander 'till the end of time
Torn away from you.

My heart is broken
Sweet sleep, my dark angel
Deliver us from sorrow's hold
(Over my heart... heart)

I can't go on living this way
And I can't go back the way I came
Chained to this fear that I will never find
A way to heal my soul
And I will wander 'till the end of time
Half alive without you

My heart is broken
Sweet sleep, my dark angel
Deliver us

Change, open your eyes to the light
I denied it all so long, oh so long
Say goodbye, goodbye

My heart is broken
Release me, I can't hold on
Deliver us
My heart is broken
Sweet sleep, my dark angel
Deliver us
My heart is broken
Sweet sleep, my dark angel
Deliver us from sorrow's hold

    This is what amy said about the song: "a good friend of mine heads up an organization in new york that rescues victims of sex trafficking. My husband and i got involved and were really moved and horrified. As i was writing the song i was putting myself in that place - what would it be like to be trapped? Threatened? Alone? Unable to tell anyone what was happening because you're afraid of what would happen? ".

    Amy wrote this about s** trafficking. I've heard many lectures on this and this really conveys the feeling.
    First stanza (one line): she'd do anything, wander forever, to be away from the trafficker.
    Second stanza: trying to escape the pain. She tries to pull back, numb herself, but she has to face the pain to see if there's a way to healing. She has to heal her soul. She feels obligated to stay with the trafficker but wants to go? ("torn away from you".)
    Refrain: she can only escape in sleep. Death, take me now, away from the sorrow.
    Next stanza: I can't go on like this, but I can't go back to where I was before - at least I get paid a little. I'm chained to this fear, because I know I'm wrong and I don't want to do this. And then I think she feels a bit attached to her captor - that happens - but she knows she has to get away.
    (refrain).
    I'm sad, torn apart. I can't hold on, the pain is too much. Kill me or let me escape. Sleep and death can be my refuge. Deliver me.
    Such a powerful song!

    Someone posted this feb 1 and they took the words right out of my mouth I am living this nightmare as we speak. / my heart is broken sweet sleep my dark angel' she was in love with a guy but he was cruel, dark, mysterious. Until one day he broke her heart and she is trying to bear the pain of being 'torn' away from him. She feels truly lost and wishes her dark love was never gone. But finally she is ready to let him go by telling him 'open your eyes. Say goodbye'. Now he has to see that she doesn't need him anymore.
