lyrics

So far from home
I've come to find you on my own
Just a flicker to your flame
So many burned by what they can’t tame

And I’m tainted by the mist
And I've been raptured by your kiss
And I am more each time you sing with me

My Dark Knight
My onyx soul shines in your eyes
Brightened by the limelight
Taken by the fires burning up my skies
In awe I go blind
Sing for me phoenix that breathes new life
Then the curtain falls and fades
I see the fading star that I can’t save

Voices overhead
Roaring with the pulse inside my chest
A sea of eyes to give me flight
Don’t fail me now we need to rise

And the poison past your lips
Show me the strengthening of your grip
That’s wrapped in every word you speak to me

My Dark Knight
My onyx soul shines in your eyes
Brightened by the limelight
Taken by the fires burning up my skies
In awe I go blind
Sing for me phoenix that breathes new life
Then the curtain falls and fades
I see the fading star that I can’t save

I'm rising, reviving
Your voice so hypnotizing
Echoes in my head
I tempted death but now instead
I'm coming

I'm coming back to great elation

I loathe what you've become
But I love you so undone
And I am taken by your majesty

My Dark Knight
My onyx soul shines in your eyes
Brightened by the limelight
Taken by the fires burning up my skies
In awe I go blind
Sing for me phoenix that breathes new life

This black hole
Calling you from the end of time
Once your soul
Seized by the echoes of a tortured cry
Draws me close
Fed from the ashes as the fires writhe
The final curtain falls and fades
I see the only star that I can’t wish away…
