Silver In My Hands

This song was created for Game of Bands round 125 : "Metal"

Lyrics:

Tripping through the darkness

On a summer day

I shield my eyes from the burning sun

As I try to get away

Despite my best intentions

All the pages have been torn

From the story I’ve been writing

Since the day I was born

Oh! Nothing stopped me from

Swiping at her bands

The tattered jewelry left her neck

And settled in between my hands

I don’t remember

When it started to burn

It’s pushing on my lungs

I feel it on my skin

It won’t be long til the silver sinks in

Stretching out my arms

Absolving all my sins

It won’t be long til the silver sinks in

Filling up with something

That I might have called regret

If I were a younger woman

With a heart inside my chest

The silver necklace coiled up

And wrapped around my arms

I imagined all the harms that were

About to come to me

“Don’t you see?” a voice inside me said,

“You get all that you give”

I tried to give her back the silver

Cuz I just wanted to live

But the good lord had sent

My punishment

It felt so real

But it was just a dream

Just a nightmare, just a dream

It’s pushing on my lungs

I feel it on my skin

It won’t be long til reality in

Stretching out my arms

Absolving all my sins

It won’t be long til reality in
[Exit]
