lyrics

there are stories that we tell ourselves 'cause we want to
or 'cause we must believe it
that someone really loved us even for a moment
just before they found we weren't needed

and these stories that we tell ourselves come to shape us
in ways we leave unheeded
a universe uncertain leaves us cold and frightened
better keep the blanks completed

And when the passion is over
and I'm getting older
take me away from believing in you

For I have a mission
sweet as the rose in bloom
she's the destiny I never knew

sleep soft as the snow I will carry you home
find meaning in all our strife and fun
like warrior bold I'll defend you alone
both mother and father I'll become

There are stories that we tell ourselves, 'cause it hurts to
and we must conclude it
that love can be a frail thing easily forsaken
if we seize the bravery to do it

And these stories let me walk away from a coward
who betrayed and left me
and has the gall to sit there pitying his own lot
I can't let him so upset me

and every night when I hold her
I'm getting closer
to a fire brighter than I felt for you

For her I will raise up
and empire long overdue
she'll have everything I never knew

sleep soft as the snow I will carry you home
find meaning in all our strife and fun
like warrior bold I'll defend you alone
both mother and father I'll become

There are stories that we tell ourselves 'cause the world moves
though we cannot feel it
and truth is such a hard word floating through my fingers
I can't bear to let the silence steal it

And these stories that we tell ourselves let me choose her
though control is illusion
and in the end it's feeling sculpted out of nothing
forging everything that's human

and every time I console her
I come to know her
someone peculiar and waiting to be

And love reassembles
from feeble to everlasting
exception to all I have seen

sleep soft as the snow I will carry you home
find meaning in all our strife and fun
like warrior bold I'll defend you alone
both mother and father I'll become

sleep soft as the snow I will carry you home
find meaning in all our strife and fun
like warrior bold I'll defend you alone
both mother and father I'll become
