Breeze still carries the sound
Maybe I'll disappear
Tracks will fade in the snow
You won't find me here

Ice is starting to form
Ending what had begun
I am locked in my head
With what I've done

I know you tried to rescue me
Didn't let anyone get in
Left with a trace of all that was
And all that could have been

Please, take this
And run far away, far away from me
I am tainted
The two of us were never meant to be
All these pieces and promises and left behinds
If only I could see
In my nothing
You meant everything, everything to me

Gone
Fading
Everything

And
All that
Could have been
Could have been

Please, take this
And run far away, far as you can see
I am tainted
And happiness and peace of mind
Were never meant for me
All these pieces and promises and left behinds
If only I could see
In my nothing
You meant everything, everything to me

    General CommentNIN 101, I like your interpretation of it...
    """""this song reminds me of being caught
    in the middle of a blizzard, completely all alone and
    on my own in an empty vastness where all ***i see is
    white. Snow coming down so hard that i can hardly see...*** and yet somehow... ~~~~peaceful.~~~~~ """"""""""

    Lost in space presently, but trapped in the future...

    Seeing light but it shines too bright until one is blind..

    That is the undefined divine defined as one dies...

    ~~~~~~~~Rest In Peace~~~~~~~~~~~
