Songs From The Inside, Volume One: Soothed

-->
A song about God, a woman, compulsions or perhaps my anima


soothed





everything's the same

but everything has changed

 i see you standing there

i'm calling out your name



but the words won't come

 no the words won't come

 no the words won't come



soothed by the sound of your voice

soothed by the sound of your name

obsessed i made the wrong choice

i used your sweet name in vain



everything has changed

but everything's the same

you see me sitting here

you're calling out my name



but the words won't come

no the words won't come

no the words won't come



soothed by the sound of your voice

soothed by the sound of your name

possessed i make the wrong choice

i use your good name in vain



and as the days turn into years

your face softens in the glow

of long forgotten tears

over things you will never know



soothed by the sound of your voice

soothed by the sound of your name

obsessed i made the wrong choice

my unfinished symphony of pain
