Summer nights, such lonely times.
This memory does bleed...

I need you in my life again.

Fantasies release me from the bondage of my fate.

The days pass like the falling rain.

Your eyes reflect like mirrors the beauty in your soul.

But anger shatters precious glass.

Can't you recall the intimate... secrets that we truly shared...?

The faith and trust we sword would always last.

I only have myself to blame.
You know it tames my breath away to see... you cry.

To love I implore! I scream in the air.
Claw at my chest and rip out my hair.
Embrace me, or let my spirit die.

Rescue me or bury me... (ah, ah, ahhhhh...)
Rescue me or bury me... (ah, ah, ahhhhh...)

*long instrumental build-up, to lyrics again*

Time is like a prison cell for those whose crime is loneliness, when freedom's banging at their door.

When all has been said and done, you must decide, swallow your pride--reach out, and take these hands forevermore.

Rescue me or bury me... (ah, ah, ahhhhh...)
Rescue me or bury me... (ah, ah, ahhhhh...)
