For you
I would tattoo me
With lines crossing into a hand
And a heart that would never bleed
With the twilight
And the horse drawn on my arm
Standing for an addiction
Pray we go unharmed

Here is my love and anger
You see now
These are my gods
These are my scars
Here is my love and anger
Well these arms are burning
But they're open wide

Some things
I hold too tightly
Some things
I'll never
I'll never touch
Oh but I'm wearing down the stones
In the river
And you see all my life
I've painted with anger's brush

Now, now could you
Lift me through my love and anger
You see now
These are your gods
These are my scars
Lift me through my love and anger
Ah and my arms are burning
But they're open wide

Oh
You precious kid
I have a motion
And it's just for you
I see a warrior
Barefoot and dancing
Oh with tears of pain and beauty
And all of this is true

For you
Lift me through my love and anger
You see now these are my gods
These are your scars
Lift me through my love and anger
Oh and my arms are burning
And they're open wide

Pointing out the graveyards
I will be the reaper
If you will be
The keeper of my heart

I will be the reaper
If you will be
The keeper of my heart
You are the keeper of this heart
Of my heart
