I Was Given Grace and Love by DindellaTheDefender I Was Given Grace and Love by DindellaTheDefender
I wish I could cross my arms, and cross your mind,
'Cause I believe you'd unfold your paper heart and wear it on your sleeve.
All my life I wish I broke mirrors, instead of promises.
'Cause all I see is a shattered conscience staring right back at me.
I wish I had covered all my tracks completely, 'cause I'm so afraid. . .
Is that the light at the far end of the tunnel or just the train?
Lift your arms, only heaven knows where the danger grows,
And it's safe to say there's a bright light up ahead and help is on the way.
(Help is on the way, Help is on the way, Help is on the way. . .)

Help is on the way.
I forget the last time I felt brave, I just recall insecurity.
'Cause it came down like a tidal wave and sorrow swept over me.

Depression, please cut to the chase and cut a long story short.
Oh please be done. How much longer can this drama afford to run?
Fate looks sharp, severs all my ties and breaks whatever doesn't bend,
But sadly then, all my heavy hopes just pull me back down again. . .
(Back down again, back down again, back down again. . .)

I forget the last time I felt brave, I just recall insecurity.
'Cause it came down like a tidal wave and sorrow swept over me.
Then I was given grace and love. I was blind, but now I can see
'Cause I found a new hope from above. And courage swept over me.

It hurts just to wake up whenever you're wearing thin.
Alone on the outside, so tired of looking in.
The end is uncertain and I've never been so afraid.
But I don't need a telescope to see that there's hope
And that makes me feel brave. . .

"Tidal Wave" Owl City


Decided to doodle and ended up with this. . . It's not really sufficient or great and I'll upload the version without effects that I started to a different song, haha. This was originally going to be a very energetic piece and changed somehow in the middle of the process. . . Regardless, I relate to the song I ended on, haha, so here you go.
