End this song
I fear what I reflect
Tonight there will not be an ending
Once letting words slip through not giving thought to anything or what they are meaning to you

You made me
Save face or save yourself
Tonight I recognize myself
Once left with words of hope, content in holding on to letting go

And with this
Our lesson will be over
Taught well to fight what can't be ours
In seeming like we're questioning
This ending gives thought to who we really are

Open eyes
Closed mind to envoke failure
You can dream awake but it's not the same
Once let these words bleed through for lending me this thought
I am weighing it down onto you

Sleep not to be awake
Breathe only because you have to
Define your strength and reenforce the doubts you thought you'd once lose
Just finish what you've started
Tonight the world will let me down and understand we are forever

Can you hear me?
Can you feel the way that distance works?
I don't need to be awake
I don't need to be awake
I never wanted this
I don't need to be awake
I never wanted it to be this way

Kill the scene
Last words lead to forgiving
Make sense of what can't be retold
Thank you for everything you left me with when recepetion was bought and sold

This is ours not to reason why
We bleed together to feel alive
Do you feel alive?

Can you hear me?
Can you feel the way that distance works?
I don't need to be awake
I don't need to be awake
I never wanted this
I don't need to be awake
I never wanted it to be this way

Sleep not to be awake
Breathe only because you have to
We were the first and last to leave before we came

Sleep not to be awake
Breathe only because you have to
You don't have to...

This is the best I've ever had
I died a thousand times
All wishing my intentions could survive
Start this again
This is the end of everything
You won't
Leave out
This jealousy is envy

Don't let this scare you
You are so contagious
