Lyrics

A rusty lunchbox still will hold an apple
A squeaky door still closes out the noise
A dammed brook still finds the will to babble
A child still loves her broken toys

I've traveled through the thickets and the fire
I've given up my soul for skies of blue
But your eyes still hold a deep desire
I am broken but I am whole to you
I am broken but I am whole to you

An inferno is born from dying embers
A prisoner may see a beam of sun
A dying man still loves who he remembers
Even as he knows his story’s almost done

The scars form a jagged cartograph
The bruises are deep friends from long ago
But it’s early to write my epitaph
You’ve found my quiet sunshine in the snow

For the wilted flower feeds the earth its flesh
A nova makes way for stars anew
And as the cosmic dust will coalesce
So will my soul be channeled into you

I've traveled through the thickets and the fire
I've given up my soul for skies of blue
But your eyes still hold a deep desire
I am broken but I am whole to you
I’m not broken, I’m in pieces for you
