New Divide

I remembered black skies / the lightning all around me
I remembered each flash / as time began to blur
Like a startling sign / that fate had finally found me
And your voice was all I heard
That I get what I deserve

So give me reason / to prove me wrong / to wash this
memory clean
Let the floods cross the distance in your eyes
Give me reason / to fill this hole / connect the space
between
Let it be enough to reach the truth that lies
Across this new divide

There was nothing in sight / but memories left
abandoned
There was nowhere to hide / the ashes fell like snow
And the ground caved in / between where we were
standing
And your voice was all I heard
That I get what I deserve

So give me reason / to prove me wrong / to wash this
memory clean
Let the floods cross the distance in your eyes
Across this new divide

In every loss / in every lie
In every truth that you’d deny
And each regret / and each goodbye
was a mistake too great to hide
And your voice was all I heard
That I get what I deserve

So give me reason / to prove me wrong / to wash this
memory clean
Let the floods cross the distance in your eyes
Give me reason / to fill this hole / connect the space
between
Let it be enough to reach the truth that lies
Across this new divide
