there is comfort in loneliness
and happiness in pain
a sweet joy in bitter tears
and sunlight in the rain

summer's warmth beneath the snow
and love behind the hate
a courage in the coward's heart
choices changing fate

hope shines through the resignation
life still follows death
filling up the emptiness
with every single breath

there's sadness in the smile
and truth wrapped in a lie
remembering what we forgot
until the day we die

i guess forever has an end
and perfect plans can fail
the letter you will never send
just got here in the mail

it tells me all the things you'd say
but that i'll never hear
to not regret a single day
and live life without fear
