In joy and sorrow Oh girl, we are the same

Jarod had once told Miss Parker that they were friends. That there was a bond between the two of them that no one could ever destroy. Because they were the same.

And somewhere along the way, she had realized that he had been right.

We are young and lost and so afraid

They had lived in a world where nothing that was good had seemed to last. It would seem all the bad stuff lasted plenty long enough. They had both been afraid to lose the people they loved because they had experienced how it feels when they had been young and then again when they had become older.

There's no cure for the pain

They had long ago learned that nothing would ever be able to heal the wounds.

No shelter from the rain

That nothing could ever be able to protect them from being hurt again.

All our prayers seem to fail

That hoping of better days wouldn't be enough.

In joy and sorrow my home's in your arms

But they had learned to comfort each other.

In a world so hollow it is breaking my heart

To be there when one of them seemed to give up all the hope that was left.

In joy and sorrow my home's in your arms

To just stay in the other one's arms and feel at home.

In a world so hollow it is breaking my heart

Even if they had always known that it wouldn't last.

Oh girl, we are the same

They had been separated after Jarod had escaped.

We are strong and blessed and so brave

But although it had been her job to return him to the Centre, they had found themselves in each other's arms again despite all the danger.

With souls to be saved

Because they had always known that there never would be any other way for them to feel safe.

And faith regained

They had learned to believe in each other when they hadn't been able to believe in themselves.

All our tears wipe away

And it had helped them so survive. To go on with their plan. To not just hope, but act.

In joy and sorrow my home's in your arms

They had found the so well-known home in each other's company …

In a world so hollow it is breaking my heart

… after the Centre had fallen down and they had forever lost their past …

In joy and sorrow my home's in your arms

But they no longer needed their past because they now had a future …
