I try to fly away but it's impossible 
And every breath I take gives birth to deeper sighs 
And for a moment I am weak 
So it's hard for me to speak 
Even though we're underneath the same blue sky 

If I could paint a picture of this melody 
It would be a violin without its strings 
And the canvas in my mind 
Sings the songs I left behind 
Like pretty flowers and a sunset 

It's heavy on my heart 
I can't make it alone 
Heavy on my heart 
I can't find my way home 
Heavy on my heart 
So come and free me 
It's so heavy on my heart 

I've had my share of pleasure 
And I've tasted pain 
I never thought that I would touch an angel's wings 
There's a journey in my eyes 
It's getting hard for me to hide 
Like the ocean at the sunrise 


Love, can you find me in the darkness, and love, 
Don't let me down 
There's a journey in my eyes 
It's getting hard for my to hide 
And I never thought I'd touch an angel's wings 


[Chorus: x2]
