When you came back I knew you'd have a story
You need someone to ease the pain
Of living life
You're like a soldier in the fray
Seeking shelter
From all the madness that you've seen
Raining down now

I know things change
Your world has slipped away
I know things change
But you're living like a soldier
Who's caught in the fray
Don't lose your faith
It's not so cold
It's not too late

When you were naive you were so invincible
And you laughed at anyone and anything that ever got in your way
But now the mirror shows the change
You're sinking back into the ground
An echo fading

I know things change
Your world has slipped away
I know things change
But you're living like a soldier
Who's caught in the fray
Don't lose your faith
It's not so cold
It's not too late

And I never thought I'd see
You living on your knees
A slave to some disease
That holds you captive
You can look inside of me
But the answers that you seek
Are everything you need
Is all inside you

I know things change
Your world has slipped away
I know things change
But you're living like a soldier
Who's caught in the fray
Don't lose your faith
It's not so cold
It's not too late
