Every corner holds a menace With piercing eyes you spot them all Every word feels like an omen Every sound makes your skin crawl Every glance in your direction Is only meant to steal your tender soul
You've taken shelter in your words I see the cards you've up your sleeve You fire laughter at your rivals And you twitter when your speak When your hands are touching mine I sense a hidden straining grief
Rest your head now, let it go, love
Take the knives out of your pockets Pull the tags that cramp your shoulders Come let me steal your every tear I'll catch them, dry them with my breath That warming wind across your body Turns your cheeks a rosy red
There's no more need for fighting It is over It is done The clouds have floated by The wolves have all been chased There's no more need for questions It's safe now Take my word
Come rest your head here in my hands Till you can't lie anymore Till you slowly, slowly Become at ease and unafraid Come rest your head here in my hands Until your will to think has gone Till you've slowly, slowly, slowly Gotten truly lost and still
Rest your head now, let it go, love Let it go...
