My Church Of Memories (Sara Haze)

Standing on the corner of hope and despair Where promises disappear like smoke in the thin air Angels walk on crutches past people on their knees Where salvation is nothing but just a distant dream Walking on through a park of poisoned hungry veins Passing a cathedral a voice cries “Jesus Saves” Where father’s eyes and alibis litter broken streets Maybe when you’re poor as dirt all you have are dreams False hopes pour down like a hard november rain But still the sun shines through when they sing Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah Salvation’s only casualty is me In MY CHURCH OF MEMORIES MY CHURCH OF MEMORIES Through the pain, pride and shame somehow love remains Maybe souls are just like glass more beautiful when stained Like flowers grow through cracks in the walls trying to reach the sun A baby’s born and lives to learn that we can rise above We can rise above Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah Suddenly salvation’s all I see In MY CHURCH OF MEMORIES MY CHURCH OF MEMORIES Oh I’m down on my knees Begging someone please I’m down on my knees In MY CHURCH OF MEMORIES Standing on the corner of possibilities With a coffee cup half filled up and a pocket full of dreams Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah Suddenly salvation’s all around me In MY CHURCH OF MEMORIES MY CHURCH OF MEMORIES
