Midnight Hands

Like a new day rising

Like a calm before the storm

Like fog lifting from valleys

On a sleeping forest floor

Eyes open slowly as the dust is shaken off

To gaze upon the wreckage

That the midnight hands have wrought

 

And now I

I feel my temperature rising

My body explode

I feel like somebody's watching

Like I'm not alone

I stopped, I vowed right then and said that

 

Whatever path you take (the path you take)

Wherever you might go (where you may go)

Whenever you decide to leave

I'll follow

I'll follow

 

We face a crossroad never knowing what's in store

There's an angel on my shoulder

There's a devil at my door

She proclaimed, "Tonight

Will be the greatest of our lives"

And I said, "Don't be so sure

Let's just wait until the morning light"

 

I feel my temperature rising

My body explode

I feel like somebody's watching

Like I'm not alone

I stopped, I vowed right then and said that

 

Whatever path you take (the path you take)

Wherever you might go (where you may go)

Whenever you decide to leave

I'll follow

I'll follow

 

There in the clearing

We gathered close

Under the moon's pale light

We lay out the tools

"You don't have to do this

But I forgive you if you don't"

She just looked away

And said, "I know"

 

Gripped by the midnight hands

We cradle futures

They would prevent

Gripped by the midnight hands

 

The line's crossed over

The dawn grows closer

Let's bite off too much

Let's jump with a blind trust

In water over our heads

 

Whatever path you take

And wherever you might go

And whenever you decide to leave

I'll follow

I'll follow

 

I won't bet on the falls you take (the falls you take)

I won't let go if you started to stray

I'll be there until you don't wake up, yeah

I'll follow

I will follow

I will follow

 

Whatever path you take (I will follow)

Wherever you might go (I will follow)

Whenever you decide to leave (I will follow)
