lyrics

I was under the impression that there was nobody here
I was under the illusion that I’d kill myself this year
Cold wind visiting, long time is the wind

I was sinking all the feelings that I never could ignore
Placed my heart beneath the window hoping wind would take my soul
So lives misery, no longer to be

All the leaves are burning as the forest is reborn

And the time that it takes to be living in the world
In the world I exist for the suffering assist
As I change my mind I look for the brighter future

And the ways that I feel like a ceremony twist
Like a bird in the trees, in a sanctuary mist
And I need to believe, yes I need to believe in something

All the trees are burning as the forest calls for more

And I feel that I need, that I need to believe
To believe in the love, in the love that I am
In the love that I am – I am – I am – I am

All the leaves are burning as the forest is reborn

And the chance that I take in the wisdom of the light
I believe in myself with all my might
With the cold wind in my sails I move forward

And the pain that I feel will empower my embrace
I will let it go, I will void that place
I will talk myself alive myself alive

All the trees are burning as the forest cries for more

And the truth that I was in a very dark place
In a place without love, without my faith
And I love who I am, who I am – I am – I am – I am
