 Struggling with Beth/Rest? Become a better singer in 30 days with these videos!

Errant heat to the star
And the rain let in
And the hawser rolls, the vessel's whole and Christ, it's thin

Well, I'd know that you'd offer
Would reveal it, though it's soft and flat
Won't repeat it, cull and coffers that
For the soffit, hang this homeward
Pry it open with your love
Sending lost and alone standing offers

It is steep, it is stone
Such recovery
From the daily press, the deepest nest, in keeper's keep
All the news at the door
Such a revelry
Well, it's hocked inside of everything you said to me

It was found what we orphaned
Didn't mention it would serve us picked
Said your love is known, I'm standing up on it
Aren't we married?
I ain't living in the dark no more
It's not a promise, I'm just gonna call it

Heavy mitted love, our love is a star
Sure some hazardry
For the light before and after most indefinitely

Danger has been stole away

This is Axiom, oh
