7. The Wilderness
Written By Matthew Ryan
Copyright Plastic Violin 2009

Our hearts were broken
When we came here
There's really only one thing
That I want to dear

The wilderness
Comes creeping
& carves you a hollow
Are you ready for tomorrow?

Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh

I want the dream that we never had
I want the dream that we never had
Before the dark and the day go bad
I want the dream that we never had

Where all the fires
& cruel disease
& all that brings us to our knees
Dissolves, despairs, concludes, concedes
The future here now please

I want the dream that we never had
I want the dream that we never had
Before the dark and the day go bad
I want the dream that we never had

The wilderness
Comes creeping
& carves you a hollow
Are you ready for tomorrow?

Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh

I want the dream that we never had
I want the dream that we never had
Before the dark and the day go bad
I want the dream that we never had

Amazing grace is it too late?
Is it too late?
Is it too late?

Amazing grace is it too late?
Is it too late for me?
To save a wreck like me?
