Desperate Tongues

The song of sadness comes over me  The world disappears for one second One weak hand reaching for it's life One desperate mouth screaming For everything that hasn't been done

It screams for the hope of life he will enjoy Something strikes me A thing that hasn't been there before When everything inside me was calm When everything inside me was calm

Reaching for life with desperate tongues The world disappears for one second Surrounded by darkness - you can't see anything It's like the darkness in every one has come into our way

And no one knows the soul besides them Just hopeless eyes and faces Filled with anger and fear Reaching for life with desperate tongues Reaching for life with desperate tongues

Is there a God - someone who knows it all? When a leave looses the grip from the tree it belongs to Or when a comb of sand is changing it's place Yes, I think - there is a God who knows it all

People have to find Him inside their heart Still searching.. but He knows every leave - every comb of sand Reaching for life with desperate tongues Reaching for life with desperate tongues
