lyrics

Every morning the frost lies on the window
every day the silence is too long
I sit here in my bedroom
waiting for someone to take me home
Every night the cold rests on my head
as I lie defeated on my bed
I reach for another blanket
and a book that's already been read

Chorus
They took away my reason
they took away my life
they took away my understanding
now I'm a mother and a wife

Every week is the same as the one before
hold on to the jacket behind the door
the arms are empty, but the smell
makes me feel just out of reach of hell
I hear the voices in the kitchen
eye-witness to the bitter, clashing sword
back against the wall without flinching
they cut my heart with every loving word

Every morning the frost lies on the window
every day the sentence is the same
I sit here whenever the wind blows
the only thing that's changed is my name
