about

I believe that adequate social and medical support for young people living with mental illnesses is instrumental in the prevention of the loss of valuable young lives to suicide. Too many of our bright young stars have been dimmed or extinguished by the cold hand of anxiety, depression and other mental demons. I was nearly one of them.

Therefore, I will be donating 25% of all profits from this track to the Kelty Patrick Dennehy Foundation. This Foundation was started by grieving parents Ginny and Kerry Dennehy after their beloved teenaged son Kelty took his own life due to depression.

To further their mission, "preventing depression related suicide in young people", the Ginny and Kerry will be riding more than 8,000km across Canada to reduce the stigma of mental illness and raise enough money to develop a Kelty Mental Health Resource Centre in every province and territory in Canada. The ride begins in Whistler, BC on May 12, 2013.

LYRICS

Fill me with your emptiness
Light me with your darkness
Fix me with your brokenness
Soften me with hardness
You have built a black bridge
your mind keeps crossing to my nakedness
I can feel the moon's full
I can feel it pull no matter where I go

No, the signs say I can't go
out into the wasteland
hunting for a lost cause
Oh my body longs to know you
but I'm living like a virgin
Covering my soft spot
'til it stops hurting

Heal me with the arrow's edge
Soothe me with the sharpness
Take me to your broken bed
and love me like you're heartless
I can taste a slow death
When you're kissing me it's on your breath
I can tell the moon's full
I can feel it pull no matter where I go

Oh my body longs to know you
Oh my body longs to show you
the path through the trees
the rivers and streams
the cavern of need where I still sleep alone
'cause I know

I can take the emptiness
I can take the darkness
You can keep your brokenness
You can keep your hardness
I can burn that black bridge
your mind keeps crossing to my nakedness
I can tell the moon's full
But I can fight the pull no matter where I go

Oh, all the signs say I can't go
out into the wasteland
hunting for a lost cause
Oh my body longs to know you
but I'm living like a virgin
Covering my soft spot
'til it stops hurting
