How do you see right through me

And find the stars still shining

The world has gone black inside me

You find the light that is hiding

My mind plays games

Different everyday

I’m breathing shallow

Desperate for a change

You stay…

…you stay


At the smallest spark, I unravel

And spin a spool of fire

Burning thoughts and memories

Smothering my desire

My mind plays games

Don’t know why I feel this way

Consumed but hollow

Pushing you away

But you stay…

…you stay


I weave through the clouds and lightning

Losing sight of the sky

You are the rain that’s falling

Quenching a soul gone dry

You hold me tight

Stronger than my fight

I run, you follow

When I slip away

You stay…

…you stay
