lyrics

Daybreak in the Forest of Sorrow

When the devil in your daydreams throws roses at your feet
And all the good ideas have been taken
You seriously contemplate a hasty retreat
You’ve been persecuted, cast down, and forsaken

This wilderness at times appears so overwhelming
As the blackness wraps its ice around your soul
And with the white noise in your ears you can’t hear the bells a tollin’
Get a grip, get a clue, you’re getting old

There’s that light in the distance
Is that the sun comin’ up?
Maybe it’s all over is it really tomorrow?
It’s daybreak in the forest of sorrow

When the angel in your nightmare welcomes you to the wasteland
And the hunted join the hungry in the street
Grab hold of your life right around the waist man
And snatch it from the jaws of defeat

There’s that light in the distance
Is that the sun comin’ up?
Maybe it’s all over is it really tomorrow?
It’s daybreak in the forest of sorrow
