First time i saw you,
My heart skipped a beat
First time i held your hand,
I shaked like a leaf

It didn't have to come to this, if you had just leaved it alone
I never wanted you to see what i've kept inside of me

There is a darkness inside of me, eating on me from within.
I never thought i would be like this, scared to fall down.

I don't see a way
I could become whole
I hate what i've become

There is a darkness inside of me, eating on me from within.
I never thought i would be like this, scared of myself to burst.
The nights grow longer and longer. It's getting darker every day.
This time of year everything's dying.

This is the first day of the rest of my life
Yesterday was the last day of a life together with you

First time i saw you my heart skipped a beat.
I think i'm losing all that was me.
First time we held hands i shaked like a leaf.

All this time you wasted on me, i can't give it back

I think i'm losing what you liked about me.
What you liked about me.
First time i saw you
My heart skipped a beat

And for each day that goes we drift further
I think i'm losing what i used to be
I think i'm losing my personality
And for each day that goes we drift further
You should never see this side of me
I don't want you to see what i turned out to be

This is the last day i will look you in the eyes.
Tomorrow won't be the day you will see what i wished to be.

I can still see you on the shore
I keep drifting further from you
And i watch you as i'm floating

    My InterpretationThis song is extremely powerful and very relatable. For once, my connection to it is so strong because the lyrics of Henning remind me of my past relationship which parallels the lyrics almost identically. Falling in love with someone and having them mean so much to you, but something (my interpretation is a mental health disorder), taking who you are away from yourself, and that person you love drifting away. Then realizing how dark you've become, and how your life is so effected by eventually losing this person, and how your personality is diminishing because of this disorder.

    Later on, still battling whatever it is that changed you, Henning is explaining how he doesn't want that person/people to still see how he is effected by whatever it is he is battling, and how he isn't the same as he was when the relationship started.

    Thank you Suis for this incredible song.
