lyrics

A dynasty almost in ruins,
We sat with our backs to the kings,
And throughout our own maiden voyage,
There were those that would've let us drown before helping us swim.

I'll raise my glass to you friend,
For giving me hope when the tide was creeping in.
I was so sick of being myself,
And your face was all that I had to bring me back from here.

Meanwhile I've been building something.
(You always said that you'd still want more.)
You wont see this, I've grown to be more.
(How long has it been since you closed that door)

I'll lift my glass to you friend,
For giving me hope when the tide was creeping in.

Oh, dare to dream,
That's why this means so much to me,
Every day had become a blur,
That I couldn't escape from.

(You always said that you'd still want more.)
Yeah, this is something I've never said,
There were times that I'd rather have died,
(How long has it been since you closed that door)
Than lived like I did.

Could I make this any clearer,
This is all I want to be,
And you dear friend have made me,
And for that there's a thanks that I've failed to give,
And if I could see you through these eyes sewn shut,
Well there could still be salvation for me.

I'll raise my glass to you friend,
For giving me hope when the tide was creeping in.
I was so sick of being myself,
And your face was all that I had to bring me back from here.

So this is a requiem,
To the person I used to be,
To tell you the truth, I don't know what you saw in me,
To the Liar, the cheat,
To The bastard who followed me,
All through my years,
Now it's time to live the change,
That you deserve to see from me.

As I lay here it's all thanks to you tonight,
As I lay here it's all thanks to you tonight.
