Memories fade into the silence
Haunting me tonight
With hopes last breath
I take this moment in
It will be the last
When morning breaks and sunlight takes the pain away

Ever after never came, and I'm still waiting
For a life that never was
And all the dreams I laid to rest
Are ghosts that keep me
After all that I've become
I am only one
I am only one

I close my eyes
And bleed this empty heart
Of all that longs to die
When faces lie and love will falter
I'm left with only time
And time will break the dreams that take the pain away

Ever after never came, and I'm still waiting
For a love I'll never have
And all the dreams I laid to rest
Are ghosts that keep me
After all that I've become
I am only one
I am only one

I'm on my own here and
No one's left to be the hero
This fairytale got wrong as night will fall
My heart will die alone

Ever after never came, and I'm still waiting
For my heart to beat again
And all the dreams I laid to rest
Are ghosts that keep me
After all that I've become
I am only one
I am only one
I am only one

    My InterpretationI'm pretty sure this song is about either love that never happened just because of the part "Ever after never came, and I'm still waiting" or lost love and all the dreams that came with that love are now gone.

    General CommentThis is my favorite song on the album so far. I also believe it's about loving someone you can't have. It's beautiful. <3

    General CommentI think that this is about losing someone before you even had the chance to...talk to the person. It's happened to me before.
