Fortitude Of Pain


When the shadows fall

And the darkness calls

When you're fighting for the Light

But you're dragged down screaming

In to the depths of night

Who can explain the fortitude of pain?

Who can explain the fortitude of pain?


Something's pushing me down.

I'm not sure what's there

I can raise my arm

But I see only air


What I see in my heart nightly

I could never reveal it lightly


And I'm reaching out

But I cannot call

And I'm thrown about

But I cannot fall

When I'm caught between the rise and fall of it all


Who can explain the fortitude of pain?

Who can explain the fortitude of pain?


Who can explain what I see in your eye

What you see in my heart that we try to deny?

Can we be resurrected and then perfected

Or is this just a process we all are going through?


Who can explain the fortitude of pain?

Who can explain the fortitude of pain?


What I see in my heart nightly

I could never reveal it lightly

It takes years to reveal what it takes years to conceal

But God speed ahead to raise us all from the dead


Who can explain the fortitude of pain?

Who can explain the fortitude of pain?
