04. Even Snakes Have Hearts

Apparitions Of Melody: The Dead Letters Edition
by Kids In The Way


The snakes are in the garden, swallowing down their prey
The flowers all are faded, their scent has gone away
The sky turns red under midnight, your eyes donít look the same

The truth is out; I can see your heavy breathing
The lights are down and youíre moving out in the dark
So kiss my face, commit yourself to treason
Now run away, you broke my heart

The hours now are turning, nobody lies awake
The children all are sleeping, a lonely death dirge plays
The rope pulls tight under your weight, the nightmare ends today

You broke my heart
I hope itís worth the price you paid
I hope itís worth the time you gave
I hope itís worth your life

Behind the Song:
"One of the most powerful things to me about Jesusí life was His relationship with Judas. Iíve always been amazed with Jesusí character, knowing one of His closest friends would ultimately be the one who gives Him up to the authorities. The opening scene in Mel Gibsonís ďPassion of the ChristĒ really inspired me to write a song like this. He visually mastered the feelings and attitudes that were in that garden that early morning, and I just wanted to give a voice to the emotions that had to be surging through that place when Jesus felt the kiss of His brother." - Dave Pelsue (Kids In The Way)
