You were my hero
Until you were human
So please do not blame me
For all my confusion

Here now I see you
Stripped down and naked
All of my answers
Are recast to questions

In a blink of lost resistance
You stepped back to take a breath
One footprint blurred to a chasm
So much darkness in its depth

In our time of no surrender
We could heal our wounds and pain
Walk through fire hand within hand
We could swallow acid rain

Now us is just me
Again for the first time
Lost my perspective
In all of this devotion

Where did our time go
When did this happen
How could I save us
From all this indifference
