Godsmack - Serenity Lyrics

As I sit here and slowly close my eyes
I take another deep breath
And feel the wind pass through my body
I'm the one in your soul
Reflecting inner light
Protect the ones who hold you
Cradling your inner child

I need serenity
In a place where I can hide
I need serenity
Nothing changes, days go by

Where do we go when we just don't know
And how do we relight the flame when it's cold
Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing
And when will we learn to control

Tragic visions slowly stole my life
Tore away everything
Cheating me out of my time
I'm the one who loves you
No matter wrong or right
And every day I hold you
I hold you with my inner child

I need serenity
In a place where I can hide
I need serenity
Nothing changes, days go by

Where do we go when we just don't know
And how do we relight the flame when it's cold
Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing
And when will we learn to control

Where do we go when we just don't know
And how do we relight the flame when it's cold
Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing
And when will we learn to control

I need serenity [x2]

  25. Mike Sarasota

    I have learned control. It is a fine line and causes you to travel a very dangerous path. You lose some emotions but increases your awareness. I wouldn't want to be any other way but I'd warn against becoming as such.

    My desire and and NEED for control started at a insanely early age, well before I understood or could explain it, even to myself. Please be mindful.

  26. Hillery Earl

    I love this song, but the rhythm is making me sleepy. LOL maybe I'll play it as a lullaby for my child

    All i can say is he is so sexy 😍

  39. Andrew Venner

    As a kid godsmack was one of the gateway bands that got me into the heavier bands I listen to now. I didn't like this song at all; it wasn't heavy enough. Now I'd say it's probably the only song of theirs I think is actually good. Funny how we change and grow.

  40. K J

    Good, good shit!

  41. bill hsrwood

  43. Michelle Q Hall

    I never get tired of listening to Sully! What an amazing song & voice he has. Love both..
    He out Rocks & looks better than U2 frontman Bono in them black shades lol..
    I wonder if he's got Italian & Indian in him? He sure looks like it..
    I like both ❤️

  44. rorrimcigam

    Godsmack and Alice in Chains should form a supergroup, and call it "drug of choice"

    I found this meditation days before my LOVE passed. On 9-18-19 An ANGEL went to HEAVEN, My ANGEL , Toni Elysia Phillips, 28 AWESOME, Beautiful, INSANE yrs together. I LOVE YOU AND ALL OUR SCARES together. This song helps me beyond words. Love you Godsmack.

    Tonya Toone

    I'm so sorry for your loss. No words can ease your pain so I'm just going to say a prayer for you. Good bless this broken heart and fill it with your Almighty love. Give it comfort in knowing their other half is with you safe and at peace. Let this broken heart know it's will again feel the love it had not lost. In Jesus name I pray Amen.

    I'm I the only one who thinks he Is writing my life in music

  64. Kaori Kanzaki

    Oh and the band's name is coming from one of Alice in Chains songs. What a shame.
