lyrics

Clay McJunkins / Darden Smith

Sometimes in the nighttime I cannot fall asleep
Laying right there with you I cannot help but think
Of camel spiders, mortar fire and moon dust everywhere
I’m here but there’s a part of me that’s over there
In the hours we have lost
I can see the cost

This is not your burden
Trying to heal all of my hurt’n
It all happened well before you
Well before our time
But if you stand beside me
With your hand to guide me
I’ll put down the pain inside me
And I will find
My peace of mind

I know you got your story, know that you’ve been hurt
So I don’t really talk about my time in the dirt
I want to keep you safe, don’t want to wound your heart
I know that you would cover me, if I was in the dark
Because you are that strong
If it takes our whole life long, but

This is not your burden
You’re trying to heal all of my hurting
It all happened well before you
And well before our time
But if you stand beside me
With your hand to guide me
I’ll put down the pain inside me
I will find
My peace of mind

Time heals
Love heals
Patience is all that I need, cause…
This is not your burden
You can’t heal all of my hurting
It all happened well before you
And well before our time
But if you’ll stand beside me
With your hand to guide me
I’ll put down the pain inside me
I will find
My peace of mind
My peace of mind
