He looked beneath his shirt today 
There was a wound in his flesh so deep and wide 
From the wound a lovely flower grew 
From somewhere deep inside 
He turned around to face his mother 
To show her the wound in his breast that burned like a brand 
But the sword that cut him open 
Was the sword in his mother's hand 

Every day another miracle 
Only death will tear us apart 
To sacrifice a life for yours 
I'd be the blood of the Lazarus heart 
The blood of the Lazarus heart 

Though the sword was his protection 
The wound itself would give him power 
The power to remake himself 
At the time of his darkest hour 
She said the wound would give him courage and pain 
The kind of pain that you can't hide 
From the wound a lovely flower grew 
From somewhere deep inside 

Every day another miracle 
Only death will keep us apart 
To sacrifice a life for yours 
I'd be the blood of the Lazarus heart 
The blood of the Lazarus heart 

Birds on the roof of my mother's house 
I've no stones that chase them away 
Birds on the roof of my mother's house 
Will sit on my roof someday 
They fly at the window, they fly at the door 
Where does she get the strength to fight them anymore 
She counts all her children as a shield against the rain 
Lifts her eyes to the sky like a flower to the rain 

Every day another miracle 
Only death will keep us apart 
To sacrifice a life for yours 
I'd be the blood of the Lazarus heart 
The blood of the Lazarus heart
