So many thoughts keep spinning around my head
The good, the bad and the unknown
This loneliness and this desolation
Is the equivalent of sitting in my head all alone
Sometimes I wish that you could just leave
Just leave and leave me alone
Other times I'd sew our souls together
All that is left of you now are the scars on my heart
I swear I will tear it all apart!
I carved your name into my arm
Promising you that I would never do you any harm
I carved your name into my soul
Promising you that I would never let you go
But you're the one that let go
You were the only good in me
Now living with myself is all I have.
Do you know what its like
To look at yourself, paralyzed?
This soul is just no good
So I can beg you to save me for all that I am.
Or beg you to save me for the fuck of it.
I know my life will end
But I won't give this life away again
You broke my trust, shattered my existence
So lift up my sleeves and see the pattern of my cuts
My flesh is all I have.
This life is not enough!
You can say that I'm so clever
I'm done with theses endeavours
I'm needing no one's help,
I'm needing only you
Sometimes I can still feel your presence
It still lingers here.
Some days I get so lonely
That the loneliness won't leave me alone
Sometimes it hurts so bad that I can't breathe
I can only tell myself that you still love me
But I don't believe my own lies
Like I believed yours
Don't you miss the way we were?
We promised one-another that we'd love each other forever
Forever didn't last very long
I guess that in the end it didn't really matter
It didn't even matter no matter how hard I tried
You slipped away, and I don't know why
Every time I try to live without you I feel dead
But I can't breathe when I'm with you
So what are we really doing here?
And now I wish that you would just go away
Just leave me here forever in the dark
Was this love just a waste of time?
I guess you'll never get to see my face again
