"Ruins" as written by and Drew Malcom Wootton Myles Peter Wootton....
I’m close enough to know you’re near
but not enough to make it real
have I become like all the others here
a ruin in the deepest of all fears
before I had a chance to look
you went and turned your back for good
don’t act as if it’s understood
when it only takes one look
at the crater where we once stood
I don’t know what we will become
I just know that I’m not the one
yeah I know that I’m not the one that you’re
looking for
I hope that I can go without
someone else will have to guide you now
that can only break a spirit down
guided by a goal you never found
somewhere in the back looms a kitchen that’s
become her own tomb
on the wall I watch the shadow of her fi gure
fl oating ‘round the room
‘til she hits the lights and is gone from view
I don’t know what we will become
I just know that I’m not the one
yeah I know that I’m not the one that you’re
looking for
yeah I know that I’m not the one that you’re
looking for
