Sometimes when I lay in bed at night
My arms stiffen as I fill with fright
I think that the future holds nothing for me
There must be a door that will fit this key

My hope is as dark as a murderer's heart
I live my life right and I do my own part
Things always go wrong and I play my cards right
It's gonna be alright, it's gonna be alright

I failed again
I died again
I lived again
I tried again

I failed again
I died again
I lived again
I tried again

I picked myself up and I beat myself down
I still wonder why my heart continues to pound
I try not to think, I try not to believe
That this is the way that my life has to be

Why does my life have to be this way
Why doesn't it just fade away
Why do I have to live to die
Why do I have to ask you why

Can you answer my questions here
Is the time for knowledge so near
Will I like what you have to say
Will you tell me how to live in this day

I want you to tell me all that you know
I want you to hold me, never let me go
I want you to be my everlasting friend
I want you to be there until the end

I failed again
I died again
I lived again
I tried again

I failed again
I died again
I lived again
I tried again

I picked myself up and I beat myself down
I still wonder why my heart continues to pound
I try not to think, I try not to believe
That this is the way that my life has to be

I find myself lost, wandering around
Trying to fight away this down
Looking for a place of refuge
Filling my mind with thoughts of you

Finally i find a gorgeous sight
A little ray of crystalline light
I lay down on the hard wood floor
To peer at the light from under the door

I am blinded by what i see
I stand up and I grip the key
I put it in and it turns my soul
I open the door and you make me whole
