lyrics

I've faced hell
I've faced hell

I walked through the flames in order to conquer myself and rebuild
embrace the darkness, understanding any torture instilled
was a lesson I truly needed to grasp and overcome
before it got me killed, or simply overrun
I peered in the mirror of my soul
reflections of my demons bearing their teeth
inhaling the smoke of my transgressions I could barely breathe
the weight of my past collapsing on me

I've faced hell and I'm here to save you
After trials I've survived, let's rewrite our love anew
I've faced hell and I know we've fallen through
life's mean to offer second chances, a revitalized view

The devil couldn't finish me, I've learned from suffering
love left scars but I'm still living and breathing
the dead tides had swept me out to see but the ocean couldn't claim me
my pursuit of life and love had shattered verges worth breaking
and I've come to realize that the gamble was worth risking


I've faced hell and I'm here to save you
after trials I've survived, let's rewrite our love anew
I've faced hell and I know we've fallen through
life's mean to offer second chances, a revitalized view

there will be many times in this life where you will get to play the hero
but just remember one thing
before you save another
you must first save yourself

let the walls between us crumble
I'm sick of barriers that have kept us apart
this is our final stand, our last chance
for our eternity to start

as Calipso's song entwines melody in our hearts
we've sealed our fate and it's forever written in the stars
the hourglass of mortality becoming meaningless shards
