The 12th Day (Autopilot Off)

Through the longest night, by this candle-light We stand to cut the dark in two And the concrete rain shattered window panes But, no, it never shattered you As long as there is blood inside my veins... I will sing this out 'Till the sun beats down And we rise to meet the sky... On that day, I swear I will see you there I will heal these wounded eyes... These wounded eyes! And the 12th day showed that the sun still rose As we tried to find our way Through the steel and smoke, though it smouldered We were cold and blanketed by grey All we had was everything we gave... I will sing this out 'Till the sun beats down And we rise to meet the sky... On that day, I swear I will see you there I will heal these wounded eyes... These wounded eyes! And our scars have made us stronger Turning strangers into brothers We remember, we recover As we hold on to each other And our scars have made us stronger! Turning strangers into brothers! As we hold on to each other! In a silent moment, we think of you now I will sing this out 'Till the sun beats down And we rise to meet the sky... On that day, I swear I will see you there I will heal these wounded eyes... These wounded eyes! These empty spaces, across a bruised skyline The names and faces, I can't erase them from my mind These empty spaces, across a bruised skyline The names and faces, I can't erase them from my mind
