The days turn into nights
And the nights, into days
I begged down on my knees in tears
But that didn’t make you stay.
I’m losing track of time now
And it’s becoming hard to breathe
I’m living off of memories
But your love is what I need.
I hate to see you walk away
It’s burned into my eyes
You promised that you wouldn’t go
Your absence proves the lies
I should be angry with you
I’m not; I don’t know how.
I’m losing faith that I’ll be loved
I need a cure, and now
I wish that I could be the one
To fall asleep in your arms tonight
Instead, I’ll hover in this life
Knowing I’ve given up the fight.
