It was the right choice
I had to go and kill him
I wish that you could know what I did it for
There is a part of me
Who wants to stay forever
Locked in the thought of what you mean to me

I’m not a proud man
But still I feel comfort
Knowing that I’m free to stand up again
It was a sad day
When the world crumbled
But I was safe inside the shell of yesterday

Now I walk
Down the road
The road I told myself to never walk down again

But if we could just fall asleep right here
Would I ever know if I would wake up dreaming?
Forever lost without you, even though I never had you
Waiting put me back in line but kept me in the dark

Now I stay alone again
You can pray but not pretend
And as the day goes on I feel you close to me
But soon my heart dies – hollow and atrophied

You were a bright man
To talk some sense into me
But reason isn’t something that I’m known for
I felt the tension
Being lifted from me
Now I just have to choose when to open the door

There is an angel
Trying to help me
She wants to help me see how to make it through
But it doesn’t help
When you want the one thing
The one thing you know has never wanted you

We could talk
Talk it through
But as soon as we’re done I’m going to walk out on you

But if we could just fall asleep right here
Would I ever know if I would wake up dreaming?
Forever lost without you, even though I never had you
Waiting put me back in line but kept me in the dark

Now I stay alone again
You can pray but not pretend
And as the day goes on I feel you close to me
But soon my heart dies – hollow and atrophied
Now I stay alone again
You can pray but not pretend

In the mirror now I see the way
The broken glass is mended and fades to memory
And while I wait for you to see my face
You know the world it has us all
Just waiting for our souls to fall from grace
