When you came back
I knew you'd have a story
You need someone
To ease the pain of living life

You're like a soldier in the fray
Seeking shelter
From all the madness
That you've seen raining down now

I know things change
Your world has slipped away
I know things change
But you're living like a soldier
Who's caught in the fray

Don't lose your faith
It's not so cold
It's not too late

When you were naive
You were so invincible
And you laughed at anyone
And anything that ever got in your way
Yeah, yeah

But now the mirror shows the change
And you don't see that
You're sinking back into the crowd
An echo fading

I know things change
Your world has slipped away
I know things change
But you're living like a soldier
Who's caught in the fray

Don't lose your faith
It's not so cold
And it's not too late

And I never thought I'd see
You living on your knees
A slave to some disease
That holds you captive

And you can look inside of me
But the answers that you seek
And everything you need
Is all inside you

I know things change
Your world has slipped away
I know things change
But you're living like a soldier
Who's caught in the fray

Don't lose your faith
'Cause it's not so cold
It's not too late
