Shadow days come to haunt me here to wrap around me
Dark and cold to hide the sunlight from my eyes
I cannot see far beyond these clouds surrounding
I will not forget that this is not the end

Under my skin, under these scars
Take me again, tear me apart
'Cause I want to see everything you are
'Til all that's left is not myself

This is life, every second here, gripping tighter
Empty praise to all the things I fear inside
But I know that you will rise up from these ashes
Tomorrow will be the light that guides me

Under my skin, under these scars
Take me again, tear me apart
'Cause I want to see everything you are
'Til all that's left is not myself

Take away everything
Burn away all of me
As I break I believe
You will come to rescue

    General Commenthe wants to die and be reborn as a new and better person.

    like a phoenix rising from its ashes.

    and he needs a certain someone's help to do that. but he's not afraid because he trusts and has faith in their love.

    at least that's how I see it. (:
