In my heart, I knew it was right
I wanted to stay, for just one more night
The space that you asked for was wrong
How am I supposed to live on?
Now that you’re gone.
The last night we had was so pure
Now, I’m alone with no cure
Sometimes life takes you down
Takes you down to where the sorrows flow
Reaching for you in their after-show.
Pulse tapped out, I’m all but gone
Reaching forward, for anyone
Just to feel a spark of life
Pain running through me, cuts like a knife.
Bleeding right out because you took my soul
Now what’s left runs so cold
A blackened heart, a murdered knoll.
Where were you, when I couldn’t feel
Rescue me from a dark-fated deal
Bring me back from falling still
Breathless and alone again.
At the end of each painful day
All I wanted was you to stay
Bring me back to life again
Come back my way
Give me a cure for each painful day.
