Sometimes life seems too quiet
Into paralyzing silence
Like the moonless dark
Meant to make me strong

Familiar breath of my old lies
Changed the color in my eyes
Soon he will perforate the fabric of the peaceful by and by

Sorrow lasts through this night
I'll take this piece of you
And hold for all eternity
For just one second I felt whole
As you flew right through me

Left alone with only reflections of the memory
To face the ugly girl
That's smothering me
Sitting closer than my pain
He knew each tear before it came
Soon he will perforate the fabric of the peaceful by and by

Sorrow lasts through this night
I'll take this piece of you
And hold for all eternity
For just one second I felt whole
As you flew right through me

And we kiss each other one more time
And sing this lie that's halfway mine
The sword is slicing through the question
So I won't be fooled by his angel light

Sorrow lasts through this night
I'll take this piece of you
And hold for all eternity
For just one second I felt whole
As you flew right through me
And up into the stars

Joy will come!

    Well this song is awesome just like all of Flyleaf's songs haha but if you notice, most songs pertain to religious things. Like in Do You Hear Waht I Hear? it ties to baby Jesus. All Around Me speaks of angels, in OK Tina, she praying to God near the end so basically this one is about good and bad, God and the Deviil. This proves that they may sound goth, but they're not. I think Lacey sings aout God to remind herself how she's not alone in bad times.

    I think that this song means that there will be times when you feel like the world is against you but theres always a light at the end of the tunnel and you can make it through no matter how far that tunnel is.

    It doesn't mean she can just enjoy life sometimes and go back to sorow.
    It says 'joy will come' meaning, it has not come yet.
    Thanks, blob4ever, for giving me a bad rating, just because you don't agree, and you have the density of a fishbowl.
