The Mile Past Forever
unknown

While ghosts of you invade
 1
this war of words is waged
 2
no victory
 3
nor defeat
 4
for tears of heartless truth
 5
owned nowhere but the grave
 6
 
 
On the empty beach
 7
with its cold crushed sea
 8
skies paint shivers where we lay
 9
Once our shadows
 10
fired purples and pinks
 11
but the sun burns lies today
 12
 
 
Dream me the courage
 13
that turns from the land
 14
embraces freedom's tide of faith
 15
to stride out barefoot
 16
the mile past forever and into your arms
 17
never looking back again
