Shines Through – Hopesfall

I’ve deceived myself in this hour of solitude
Through the breaking of love and spirit

These words spit from my mouth
Bitterness poured from deep within my heart
Only to stain and harden my skin
Erasing compassion

Ripping the joy from inside of me

Let me go
Trying to rid myself of this frame

Wash it from my eyes, all these sad goodbyes, make me feel again

Leave me here, to reconcile these unfinished plans
Love broke me

Trials are in vain
I press on not knowing what there is to gain

In all that I’ve failed
I have come to realize Your truth shines through pain

One of the lost songs from my high school days.
