LIFE IN GRAY

***

I just had to get closer
To someone like you
Now I’m dazed and forgetful
I want to feel something new

And I can tell that you’re better
You really know how to breathe this life
Was alive when you found me
Foolish enough to believe your eyes

(Chorus)
Is this it
Before I’m dead
Do I just live a bit to regret
The day we met
The things you said
Trying to get through this
Life in gray
Is this it

Emptiness pulls me closer
Without disdain I look in her eyes
Offer myself to her comfort
Until I’m ready to face more lies

I can tell that you’re better
You really know how to breathe this life
Was alive when you found me
Foolish enough to believe your eyes

(Chorus)

I’m lost there’s nothing to find
But darkness inside you left behind
I’m lost there’s nothing to find
But darkness inside you left behind
I’m lost there’s nothing to find
But darkness inside you left behind
I’m lost there’s nothing to find
There’s nothing inside but darkness

(Chorus - Repeat)

Can't Stand Still

My angel of the night
My trouble at first sight
I need us to collide
I need us to

Poison these bodies
To erase these minds
When there’s nothing inside

I want nothing less than everything
I want nothing more than all you have to give
Racing through this world I can’t stand still
Empty promises from angry little pills
You turn me inside out
Little pills you turn me upside down

Why can’t they see through this disguise
Every smile covers a lie
And we’re standing here tonight
Barely alive

Poison these bodies
To erase these minds
When there’s nothing inside

Don't Wake Me

***
A new day awaits
No sun in the sky
I can’t find the answer
Or a reason to try

And I was a liar
Every time that I smiled
Sometimes I wonder
If I’m still a child

Don’t wake me now
I’m hollow inside
Don’t wake me now
I’m hollow inside

I’m losing my mind
I’m losing my mind
I’m losing my mind
I’m losing my mind
I’m losing my

Under this bridge
A river of lies
Now everything changes
Before your eyes

You try to outrun it
But it’s still inside
Alone in this crowd
How long can you hide

Don’t wake me now
I’m hollow inside
Don’t wake me now
I’m hollow inside

Angel child
Where do you come from
Angel child
Why are you alone
Angel child
To whom do you belong
Angel child
We don’t seem to know

I see your face in the paper
I see it on the wall
Alone in the shadow you sit
But no one hears you call

I’m feeling so empty
In the darkness we roam
Did you come back to save me
To find a way home

What are we going to do
What have you got to say
I raise my head a little
Just to see another day
What are we going to do
What have you got to say
I raise my head a little
Just to see another day

Angel child
Where do you come from
Angel child
Why are you alone
Angel child
To whom do you belong
Angel child
We don’t
No we don’t seem to know
