So much time slipped away as if it meant nothing at all.
I remember that night, we didn't know it - it would be our last.
But now as I look back, an awkward tension hung in the air.

Now everything is different, I don't know you anymore.
And as we pass in the hall I feel myself weeping inside.
Knowing that the friendship that
There once was has withered to but one glowing ember
Of a fire that burned so brightly.

And I swear to you the times are changing and I swear that you are too.
I swear to you that I'm no different, this I swear to you.
I think you're well aware, that this path we've taken is all but fair.
With everyday we're led astray and slowly it just slipped away. Away from me.

I am now accompanied by hollowed memories, all of them faded to black and grey.

And I swear to you the times are changing and I swear that you are too.
I swear to you that I'm no different, this I swear to you.
I think you're well aware, that this path we've taken is all but fair.
With everyday we're led astray and slowly it just slipped away.

These thoughts they tear me up inside, devour me, consume my mind.
I scream at night, rip out my hair, how much more can I forbear?

I swear, this I swear to you, from birth I think we knew, nothing is truly alive unless it dies.
And you I think you're well aware this path we've taken is all but fair.
With everyday we're led astray and slowly it just slipped away. Away from me.

    General CommentI do too. It's exactly the situation with someone and myself. It's kind of self-explainatory on what it means.
    His voice kinda bothers me though, unfortunatly.
