I need someone to hold onto and cry.
It was you, but now you're dead and gone, baby.
I need a new pair of shoes; a place to hide how ugly I am.
Tonight's the night.
This is the best day ever.

Pain of a love I gave to you but never spoke to me.
Believe the kiss was better than life.
Stay with me, I alone am by myself.
Will this set me free? [set me free]
Take my hand, I jump into the sea.

I need someone to hold onto and die.
It wasn't you so now I think I'm done with life.
The mirror has no reflection but a curse.
I know I'm so ugly, it hurts.
This is the best day ever.

Pain of a love I gave to you but never spoke to me.
Believe the kiss was better than life.
Stay with me, I alone am by myself.
Will this set me free? [set me free]
Take my hand, I jump into the sea.

So, I know it's been so long.
I know it's been so long.
Killing me, it's wrecking me.

Pain of a love I gave to you but never spoke to me.
Believe the kiss was better than life.
Stay with me, I alone am by myself.
Will this set me free? [set me free]
Take my hand, I jump into the sea.

Pain of a love I gave to you but never spoke to me.
Believe the kiss was better than life.
Stay with me, I alone am by myself.
Will this set me free? [set me free]
Take my hand, I jump into the sea.

    General CommentIn this song I find a story of love lost through what is exuded as, perhaps, a suicide.

    It also seems to have a plea for more time from a lover.
