Scars Burn

I'll walk away Hoping I'll stay the same But the visions of you I'll remember They're implanted in my brain
I walk back to where I started Hoping that now that we've parted I'll forget What I saw you do But I don't And now I'm broken-hearted
I can turn my back But what I've seen Is now in my mind I can start again But what I know Is forever mine Though I can change my ways That time will never return Though I can close my eyes Memories flash and scars burn

Night's Work

You touch I sting Leave me alone I gotta do my thing You tap I bring All the heat And now you're burning You slip I bite You don't go Anywhere tonight You sleep I fight All the world's battles Then turn off the light

You reach I leave Better take off This is your reprieve You wait I weave Take off the jacket Your heart is on your sleeve You jump I hold The river's way too fast And it is way too cold You swim I mold Somebody's gotta do The things that they've been told
I fly You fall The rocks in your pockets Aren't helping at all I soar You call Maybe you want to rethink Before you freefall I stop You start Nobody's here to hear The beating of your heart I slow You spark Dawn is coming Say goodbye to the dark
