How did I get so far from the promises I made?
Life it seems so dark compared to yesterday
Everything I had the gift that I received
Is slipping through my hands
Now it’s only make believe

Chorus:
I’m fading away and I feel like I can’t breathe
Tomorrow’s gone. How long until I break?
I’m fading away and I’m trapped inside of me
Tomorrow’s gone. How long until I break?

All the things I chose that slowly took Your place
Are laughing back at me and I can’t make it go away
My life is crashing down, another tragedy
Another broken dream, now it’s only make believe

(Chorus)

    General CommentI feel like this song is about falling away from our faith and struggling with our faith. Breaking the promises we made to God and our life feels darker and the light seems to be too far away to see. It felt like just yesterday the light was right there for us to live in

    How did I get so far from the promises I made?
    Life it seems so dark compared to yesterday
    Everything I had the gift that I received
    Is slipping through my hands
    Now it's only make believe
