Song Lyric Sunday – The Great Divide by Breaking Benjamin

Breaking Benjamin is one of those bands that I have loved for years, but I haven’t listened to them for a while.  Adelle and I used to listen to their album, Phobia, when I took her to school.  We both loved it so much!

Last week, I was looking for something to listen to and thought of Breaking Benjamin. When I pulled them up on Apple Music, I noticed they released a new album last year – Dark Before Dawn.  I’ve honestly listened to nothing else since.  I can’t get enough of the album.  It made it hard to choose which song I was going to feature for Song Lyric Sunday because I love every one of them; but this song just speaks to me.

I realized today that the entire album is really about death.  Not necessarily happy stuff, but the way they put songs together, their lyrics and harmonies always give me chills.  I know they are more grunge/rock and roll than what I normally post, but I think you should give them a try.  You never know… you might just get hooked on them too!

The Great Divide by Breaking Benjamin
Written by Benjamin Burnley (Founder and frontman for the band)
Lyrics found at AZ Lyrics

Carry me all through the night
I am the last light fading
Leave all the lost souls behind
Show me the silence breaking
And when you’re lost and out of time
I will be right here waiting
And when your dreams return to life
I’ll be forever fading
And we’ll fall behind

So I’ll wait for you
As I keep your faith alive
And I’ll pray for you
As we cross the great divide

Bury the wounds deep inside
Rupture the fault line breaking
Dream of the world left behind
Show us we’re worth forsaking
And when the cold begins to rise
Darkness is overtaking
And when the fear is satisfied
I’ll be forever changing
As we all arise

So I’ll wait for you
As I keep your faith alive
And I’ll pray for you
As we cross the great divide
And I’ll break for you
As I open up the sky
And I’ll stay for you
As we cross the great divide

Follow the sunlight down
Cry clear and loud
Heaven won’t help us now
But it’s better this way
Warm light wash me away

So I’ll wait for you
As I keep your faith alive
And I’ll pray for you
As we cross the great divide
And I’ll break for you
As I open up the sky
And I’ll stay for you
As we cross the great divide
