Drowning in my pool of sorrows
Can you imagine what I see?
The wrath of all of these emotions
That you place inside of me (2x)

Memories fade away
And pictures of a happy yesterday
Are nothing more than
sweet, white, lies.....

If I've said it once,
I've said it a thousand times
But our hearts decide
what they want to hear

Never before has something so bad felt so good
And though we know we're killing our tomorrow
We must live for today
For this moment when time stops and we only know of each other
Each kiss is a kiss of false hope
But it's ok!

Maybe I enjoy this pain
If I live for this moment
I'll have eternal memories
And never again doubt

That you and I are real
These feelings, so strong, so wrong

    General CommentHave they drowned? Because the "current" was too strong? Sorry for the crap analogy, but it has to do.
