How do you say goodbye when you're not ready to let go?
How do you walk away it's over I can't take this anymore
Dive through a glass-blue lake
Emulsify me when I wake
I need to find my closure; close this chapter so I can start to breathe

These scars won't heal
Forever on my sleeve
Lie awake at night and dream so that I can escape from here

Chorus:

There's nothing more that I can do
Than sit around and wait for you in this desperate solitude
Life's not always black and white and obvious: oblivious
These winter nights freeze the teardrops to the corner of my eyes
I just can't watch you die

How do you sit and watch your best friend lie and wait?
How do you comfort from a distant frozen catatonic state?
Soft sounds you have to say
Advice you'd like to leave me
Give me the strength in words to help me cope and see the bright of day

These scars won't heal
Forever on my sleeve
Lie awake at night and dream so that I can escape from here

Chorus

Where does the light go?
The insect is risen do I crush underfoot tiny isles: ecosystems
Destroyer of life - do you flow from me or do I flow from you?
Without you I don't know what I'm supposed to do on my own

Chorus

I won't leave you now (don't black out)
