Don't try to call
There are some bridges that burn beyond recognition beyond repair
Don't say you've changed
There are some forces that turn beyond recollection beyond my stare

When I feel the cold in the dark
I know you're there

Long ago I was a woman in pain
A woman in need, I ran to you
Long ago I did not understand
You were making me bleed, I ran to you

When I feel the cold in the dark
I know what you do

I will crawl through my past over stones, blood and glass
In the ruins
Reaching under the fence as I try to make sense
In the ruins

I know your heart has held its own fear
It's perfectly clear what they did to you
But in my heart it's the screaming I hear
I won't let them come near since my love knew you

When I feel the cold in the dark
I remember you

I will crawl through my past over stones, blood and glass
In the ruins
Reaching under the fence as I try to make sense
In the ruins

Night after night I am carving it out
I will carry it down to the waterside
Night after night I am hearing the sound
Of wings that come beating I will not hide

When I feel the cold in the dark
I will know why

But I will crawl through my past over stones, blood and glass
In the ruins
Reaching under the fence as I try to make sense
In the ruins

But if I am to heal I must first learn to feel
In the ruins
I will crawl, I will crawl, I will crawl
