Fragments Of

by Motives



First track released off our upcoming ep, TCH


Every single day
I am reminded of mistakes I've made
My hands are open
But am I ready to receive this gift?

Fragments of a story
I took the words and put them into a song
But they didn't quite come together
And nothing makes sense anymore
No, no I can't think like that
I've got to keep my head straight
I've got to push myself to change

Cuz everyday is just the same

As I sit here looking through this dirty window at the sunrise
I realize I was made for more
Cuz I've still got so many holes in my chest

You are everything that I want to be
So let's move forward
We will become one
I know now that everything is going to be alright
I can see clearly what lies before me
What would I be if I stopped reaching now?
The sun refuses to go down tonight
It burns brighter than ever before
Fear dwells in your heart, but only of you let it
This is what I was made for.
