For Your Sake Lyrics

For your sake,
I will scale the walls
Of some forgotten fortress,
I will kneel and
Mix my fingers
With the cool, black earth.
Proclaim the sorrow of songbirds
To the iron-grey skies,
And swoop and skim
The frothy laughter of rivers.
Because you cannot
I must.

For your sake,
I will don the armour
And beat the sword
‘Gainst the silent night.
I will listen for its echo
With my pounding heart,
Chase the shadows of moonbeams,
And dance in their light,
Dance in their light.

For you sake,
Let them listen once more,
Oh, that you may rise again
And play
Once more
So beautif’ly
The heavens hear my song.
