Memories whisper a sad song in my ear Of such a desolate life that I've lived here. They come to me on the weightless wings Of a death I never knew. And as my endless sorrow sings I'm dying right next to you. I love every word you ever say Because what you don't cuts me deep And bleeds my heart out everyday, But I can't do anything but collapse and weep. It would seem, no matter how hard I try Everything I ever touch or love will die And so I wonder if I'm better off alone to walk with memories that tear me down. Set ablaze everything that I still own And bury me alive in the charred ground. How can I forgive myself for not being with you? I don't seem to have what it takes to open your heart Even though it's all I want to do. I can't take much more, it's tearing me apart. I can't begin to live with all the pain I see It resides in you, and yet it's killing me. I don't know why your tears Fill me with all this rage. The promises I've kept for years And the ones you can't keep for a day. The sun slides down and the stars shine To taunt me with the night As I cry yet another time And hate this feeling I can't fight. Betrayed and refused, I lay dead In a pool of broken promises Even after all the things we said I feel so useless. Let me disappear into nothing If that's all I can be I can't say anything That might make you see How you break me apart After I gave you my heart. I'm alone again, though you are here I'm the static of a channel you don't care about After I told you all I fear When I try to be in your life, you throw me out. As the darkness of my mind shadows my soul I look to you for reassuring love But all I see is something just as cold As the ice that falls from the sky above That freezes my heart that you still hold. I can't stop loving you It's all I can ever do.
