Tear (part II)

Cast between the shadow and the light
Torn between the mirror that is me
You give me something to burn for
You give me something to wail

I dance sweet-softly in the pain
Resigning away to nothing
I delve deeply into conflict
Fighting with bitter hope

Is this how we pictured it all to be?
Is this what I hoped I once could see?
Burning in fear, torment of desire
Maybe better off, if I was a liar

To tear open the heart
     and now to show
The feeling inside
     we fear to hold
Spinning a web
     entrapment our own
Looking for an answer
     between two wrongs

Maybe better off, if I was a liar
Burning in fear, torment of desire
Is this what I hoped I once could see?
Is this how we pictured it all to be?

Fighting with bitter hope
I delve deeply into conflict
Resigning away to nothing
I dance sweet-softly in the pain

You give me something to wail
You give me something to burn for
Torn between the mirror that is me
Cast between the shadow and the light
