Lyrics

Sanctuary

This used to be my sanctuary

Now it is my hell

I once came here for asylum

From a pain I knew too well

And I hate myself for saying this

And for crying over you

But it was not reckless abandon

What transpired entre nous

And now I'm stuck here with these memories

And your scent all over me

Can this still be my place of solace

When I still feel your body's heat

And the only thing I'm sure of

Is this restless, burning need

And this all too keen awareness

Of a desire I can't feed

Can you feel me like I feel you

The heavy heartbeat, the trepid hands

I hear you whisper when you're not speaking

Feel your torture at your loss of command

Silent echoes enter discreetly

Soft surrenders breaking new ground

I taste your teardrops when you're not crying

Feel you with me when you're not around

I want to wake up in the morning

In your cast off collared shirt

I want to be your place of safety

And take away your hurt

I have no other angle

But to give you all of me

And hope that in the end

A sanctuary's what you'll see

Can you feel me like I feel you

The heavy heartbeat, the trepid hands

I hear you whisper when you're not speaking

Feel your torture at your loss of command

Silent echoes enter discreetly

Soft surrenders breaking new ground

I taste your teardrops when you're not crying

Feel you with me when you're not around
