Ballad of a Battle​-​Scarred Heart

from by This Holy House

lyrics

I've been asleep too long,
Wake me up,
I'm suffering from a broken heart,
Please sew it up,
Darlin' you're the reason why I survived the war,
Swords ran into my side,
I've gotta leave those scars behind,
I've gotta leave those scars behind,

So take my hand in yours and lift me up,
Take me where you are and heal me with your love,

Fear was all I had,
Will I ever see you again?
They told me I had already died,
I just didn't know it yet,
But there were glimmers inside,
Hope was building up,
You came and brought me back to life when I had almost given up,
When I had almost given up,

So take my hand in yours and lift me up,
Take me where you are,
Darlin' heal me with your love,

Somehow I always knew that you would break through,
Somehow I always knew that you would break through
