Track Name: Her Name Was
A nameless face in the crowd.
A girl with dreams so high.
Looking down at the street
The wind beneath her feet

Oh how I see, the beauty kept hidden away
As the rest of the world
runs against her
Like the fiercest river.

And still she stands,
Against the waves.
With head hung low
No name or place,
to call her own.

The crowd forms, a thousand voices talk back at me
"Where did she go?"
"She was here just moments ago"

"What did she say?"
"What was her name?"

She closes her eyes
As I race up the stairs
I hear her scream to the sky

"Nothing left for me here,
No one to hear my voice.
In this world
I've lost my place
Nothing but a nameless face"

That familiar feeling
Of floating away
The last shackle is released
Before a sharp snatch
Pulls her back

And I scream

"Don't leave this place.
Don't give in
Be the weight that parts the waters."

"Don't leave this place
Don't give in"
She smiles and turns to me

And says

"Open your eyes young man
I'm already gone
You came here just too late
You never took hold of my arm"

A bright lights stings me
As my eyes adjust
My hand remains out stretched
But in it I hold nothing but dust

I fall to my knees
My soul torn in two
There was nothing
That I thought
She couldn't pull through

But now she's gone
Her name was
