A screaming match again
Could this be the end
A breaking point and I can't bear it
You wanna know the truth
The matter life is long
I've taken every wrong direction
Writing on the wall
Love once strong now falls
I'm staring into space
And drowning under my decisions

I wonder how you can sleep
At night, having lied to these eyes
You could feel the relief
The lying awake at night
Wondering nowhere the same time
To know his face and his name
Made me lose my mind
I fell apart for the last time
Signs neglected but seen
And thanks to you
My conscience finally feels clean

I brought you into this
You blame me over that
We fight each others accusations
You wanna know the truth
The truth is I'm afraid
Afraid of going no where always
Writing on the wall
Love once strong now falls
Burning in the flames
Covered with the scars of our love

I wonder how you can sleep
At night, having lied to these eyes
If you could feel the relief
The lying awake at night
Wondering no where the same time
To know his face and his name
Made me lose my mind
I fell apart for the last time
Signs neglected but seen
And thanks to you
My conscience finally feels clean

Lately, lately
I just keep wasting, wasting
To make me hate me, hate me
Maybe, we just don't belong
Again, is this the end

After what you put me through
I feel nothing for you

I wonder how you can sleep
At night, having lied to these eyes
If you could feel the relief
The lying awake at night
Wondering no where the same time
To know his face and his name
Made me lose my mind
I fell apart for the last time
Signs neglected but seen
And thanks to you
My conscience finally feels clean
My conscience finally feels clean
My conscience finally feels clean

My conscience finally feels clean...

    General CommentThere was on line a couldn't quite work out:

    "And they still do" It was that or, "And they see you"/"Now they see you"

    I apologise if I did put the wrong lyric in.


    The song is awsome, I think it's about a bad break up, the result of a cheating partner. The voice in this song is amazing!

    General Comment"The matter life is long"

    I think it's "The map to life is long", it makes more sense given the following lyric
