beloved lyrics – my epic

there are nights now
when i don’t dream
i awake in the darkness
to find i’ve been weeping
but it has been ages
since i’ve cried while awake
’cause centuries wear on the heart
they wrote it away

i’m still trying to record each word you spoke
if i finish i’ll fill up this earth
but the memory of your voice leaves me empty

’cause i’ve been banished and boiled alive
and yet i remain
they still call me by name
they don’t say it the same

i’ve watched all of my brothers become martyrs and die one at a time
but i’ve often wondered if waiting for you is the harder sacrifice

and i’m still trying to record each word you spoke
if i finish i’ll fill up this earth
but the memory of your voice leaves me empty

i may be feeble and barely alive
but i have yet to forget
a single word that you said

if my voice breaks down
and all of my strength gives out
and i’m just a sh*ll left breathing my last days out
(let it be known)
and time is a thief who surely steals everything
but in my case it just cleared out the waste for me
nothing has dimmed, you have simply eclipsed all the stood in the way
i’d give twenty more lifetimes, it would all be the same
in the end i know i’ll find you will come once again
you’ll come call me by name.
