I never thought I’d forgive the past that follows me
I never even imagined I’d forget the beauty of the blanket that tucks the moon in

I know the notes in my soul, I just haven’t heard the words
O, dearest Resolution, you have cured my broken heartbeat
I am at peace
Back in the back of my mind, I stare at this glowing alphabet
And I see the brightest of smiles

I never thought I’d forgive the demons chasing me
At my fingertips I can taste the dawn that’s coming soon
No longer am I the pawn that looks past the truth

I can feel the breeze
Though biting, it relieves the hottest of Suns and sweat stains
Though unborn, the Sun remains a light to shine and brighten the weary road
Pictures of the past are forgotten and taken away to the fire’s embrace
Does it seem as bright as it feels?

I never thought I’d forgive myself so easily
The moon is falling, and I feel the dawn approaching slowly
Slowly—O, so slow!

So this is what butterflies do for a living
And this is how Happiness makes me feel
This is how my heart stops when you’re here with me
And this is how the Sun hides when you’re not around
