I never meant to wither, I wanted to be tall
Like a fool, left the river, and watched my branches fall
Old and thirsty, I longed for the flood to come back around
To the cactus in the valley, that's about to crumble down

And wipe the mark of sadness from my face
Show me that your love will never change
If my yesterday is a disgrace
Tell me that you still recall my name

So the storm finally found me, and left me in the dark
In the cloud around me, I don't know where you are
If this old world goes up in arms, all I can do is stand
And I won't fight for anyone, until you move my hand

And wipe the mark of madness from my face
Show me that your love will never change
If my yesterday is a disgrace
Tell me that you still recall my name

Oh here, in the shadow
Here I am
And I need someone by my side
It becomes so hard to stand
And I keep trying to dry my eyes
Come and find me in the valley

And wipe the mark of sadness from my face
Show me that your love will never change
If my yesterday is a disgrace
Tell me that you still recall my name
And wipe the mark of madness from my face
Show me that your love will never change
If my yesterday is a disgrace
Tell me that you'll still recall my name
Oh, tell me that you'll still recall my name
Oh, tell me that you'll still recall my name.
