Lyrics: My Sorrow Is Yours

Hands are held
Within your hands
Every breath a gift
Laughter rings within these walls
A room they fill may silent fall

My sorrow is yours

Adorn the wall
Where autumn sun
Long shadows cast
Memories of treasured times
Our burning hearts lock tears inside

My sorrow is yours
