Reason For The Sound

by Makeshift Lullaby

/

lyrics

I've searched among the madness,
trying to find the beauty in a warm duvet,
struggled to find reason somewhere
in that which can not be explained,
wrestled with my conscience enough
to know the outcome always is the same,
but all I've found is there's no easy way out.

I needed some time to think things through.
I needed some time to realize that all I need is you.

I've suffered losses that have served solely for another's gain,
put the pen to paper to try to give this sort of grief a name,
but in every attempt, it seems my efforts always were in vain,
until I found a reason for the sound...

I needed some time to think things through.
I needed some time to realize that all I need is you.
