This shadow doesn’t fade with the sun, or closes with my eyes
And the air never seemed so clearer, it’s closer than I ever realised

And I’m walking away, I can’t hear your words
This hate is so real, and born out of love

Time has no meaning here
It slips by just like this slipped in

What could I mean? What could possibly force me to turn my back
On you forever? Turn away from you forever.

I’d feel alive
I’d be alive
If it were not you bleeding
Me dry
Left to die
Left without even a choice
I’m freezing…I’m screaming
At the emptiness that screams back at me
I fade with the sun…And I won’t awake

I reach out for you and I feel nothing
I look inside for you and I feel nothing

Every damaged thought, every falling tear
Every scarred tissue, every bleeding sore
Every dying nerve, every failing cell
Every wasting muscle, every crumbling bone
Couldn’t kill me more than your heart

My sleep fails…My hands shake
Uncontrollable waves of fear blind me
Face to face with death and I so much want to live
I’ve still got so much to give,

And I want to be held by you
On and On
And I need you so much now
On and On
And I can’t stand to be alone
On and On
And I can never forgive you
On and on

I don’t want to be alone
You’ve bled me dry
And I can still remember
Everything you meant to me.
