Sour Ground (Asrai)

She wrote her name in sand And lived a lie within The sadness and sorrow For the loss that came again Water washed the tears away But the emptiness stayed Tamed itself with outrage And spit the bitterness away This water won't feed the earth Nothing grows on sour ground She cannot calm the screams To silence in her head Staring with her empty eyes Try to feel what she had She wrote her name in sand And loved a lie within Where beauty can be cruel And beauty takes it all This water won't feed the earth Nothing grows on sour ground I will swim with you And play amongst the waves Where mermaids will be singing Where the sweet song remains Like a comfort whisper To be together again She wrote her name in sand And believed her lie within This water won't feed the earth Nothing grows on sour ground This water won't feed the earth Nothing grows on sour ground
