The 12th Day

This song is by Autopilot Off and appears on the album Make A Sound (2004).

Through the longest night, by this candle-light
We stand to cut the dark in two
And the concrete rain shattered window panes
But no, it never shattered you

As long as there is blood inside my veins...

I will sing this out
Till the sun beats down
And we rise to meet the sky
On that day, I swear, I will see you there
I will heal these wounded eyes
These wounded eyes

And the 12th day showed that the sun still rose
As we tried to find our way
Through the steel and smoke, though it smouldered
We were cold and blanketed by grey

All we had was everything we gave...

I will sing this out
Till the sun beats down
And we rise to meet the sky
On that day, I swear, I will see you there
I will heal these wounded eyes
These wounded eyes

And our scars have made us stronger
Turning strangers into brothers
We remember, we recover
As we hold on to each other

And our scars have made us stronger
Turning strangers into brothers
As we hold on to each other
In a silent moment we think of you now

I will sing this out
Till the sun beats down
And we rise to meet the sky
On that day, I swear, I will see you there
I will heal these wounded eyes
These wounded eyes

These empty spaces, across a bruised skyline
The names and faces, I can't erase them from my mind
These empty spaces, across a bruised skyline
The names and faces, I can't erase them from my mind
