Pulled away is my heart from yours,
Somber days await upon your shores.
Stoic nights become all embracing,
As I turn & walk away.

Didn't want to do this but I had to,
Didn't want to do this cuz' it hurt you.
Didn't want to do this but I had to,
Knew I shouldn't do this cuz' I loved you.

Laced tonight underneath red moons,
(I will never die for you).
Moments faded in mid-twilight,
(I will never die for you).
Hold my hand in this gold autumn,
(I won't die).

Although I knew these nights would never end I still had some hope in me & you,
Hold my hands with these obscure shards of glass,
I knew these nights would never fade away.

I'm face down in my defeat,
Saved only by your grace.

Rising day,
Stay away,
Falling night,
Hear my cries.

    General CommentHey everyone, this is my band Breathing Room, and I am the writer of the lyrics.

    This song is about this girl that got me through a lot in my past and I ended up realizing in the end that everything we had was shit. I came to the realization that God was there for me every step of the way and that strength in my soul pulled me through.
