ValencourtMapping Out the Miles

I wear it like a badge for you,
No one can ever know
The love I've always held, for you

The shortest days will still drag on
The color's fading from my skin
And won't return til we meet again,
not soon enough, not soon enough

And in all of my reflections
I see you staring back at me
and though it makes my stomach turn
I still find it comforting
To know that you're still with me
To walk with me through the day
To be the breath in what I say

I've felt numb and I feel empty
those feelings fail to compare
to any moment that I've shared, with you here

They say it's always such a long road
So while I'm mapping out the miles
I'll make breathing seem worthwhile, today, today

And in all of my reflections
I see you staring back at me
and though it makes my stomach turn
I still find it comforting
To know that you're still with me
To walk with me through the day
The sunlight washing over me

I've got to fight myself to sleep
But then I see you in a dream
And I swear I'd love to stay,
So I can always see your face
