like leaves beneath the frost.

     Em 
And off of the blocks,
       D  
I was headstrong and proud,
        C B 
at the front of the line for the card-carrying, highbrowed.
      Em 
With both eyes fastened tight,
      D 
yet unscarred from the fight.
  C B 
Running at full tilt, my sword pulled from its hilt.

 Em D 
It's funny how these things can slip away,
           C B 
our frail deeds, the last will wave good-bye.
       Em D 
It's funny how the hope will bleed away,
          C B 
the citadels we build and fortify. Good-Bye.

 Em 
Night came and I broke my stride,
    D 
I swallowed hard, but never cried.
      Em 
When grace was easy to forget,
  D 
I'd denounce the hypocrites,
  C D 
casting first stones, killing my own.
 Em 
You would unscale my blind eyes,
     D 
and I stood battered, but more wise,
 Em 
fighting to accelerate,
 D 
shaking free from crippling weight.
 Em 
With resilience unsurpassed,
    D 
I clawed my way to You at last.
  C D 
And on my knees, I wept at Your feet,
   C</spa
