Cactus In The Valley Lyrics

by Lights

I never meant to wither
I wanted to be tall
like a fool left the river
and watch my branches fall
old and thirsty I longed for the flood to come back around
to the cactus in the valley that's about to crumble down

And wipe the mark of sadness from my face
Show me that your love will never change
If my yesterday is a disgrace / Tell me that you still recall my name"

So the storm finally found me
And left me in the dark
In the cloud around me
I don't know where you are

If this whole world goes up in arms
All I can do is stand
And I won't fight for anyone
Until you move my hand

And wipe the mark of madness from my face
Show me that your love will never change
If my yesterday is a disgrace
Tell me that you still recall my name

Oh here
In the shadows
Here I am
And I need someone by my side

It becomes so hard to stand
And I keep trying to dry my eyes
Come and find me in the valley

And wipe the mark of sadness from my face
Show me that your love will never change
If my yesterday is a disgrace
Tell me that you still recall my name

And wipe the mark of madness from my face
Show me that your love will never change
If my yesterday is a disgrace
Tell me that you still recall my name
