Something like desperation
As we face our expiration
And we know that we are coming to our end.
I’m feeling my own weakness
And it hurts me just to speak this,
But I know it’s best if we just don’t pretend.
If I stay with you forever
And I speak my true thoughts never
It won’t be long until the rage begins to grow.
We haven’t always been sad –
And it’s not that it’s been all bad –
But I’m not saying anything you don’t already know.
I don’t even know what sparked this
But I can’t stay shackled to your darkness,
And I don’t care that life will never be the same.
I find I’m burning with desire
And I yearn to touch the fire
But it seems I’ve lost the patience for this game.
At night I stare up at the ceiling
As I dream of something more appealing
And I dream about a better way to be.
Trapped here in the mundane
As I slowly go insane
It feels like I’m drowning in the sea.
I can’t stay on much longer
Just hoping we grow stronger
When the truth is, I don’t even care no more.
You think that you have trapped me
And yet you don’t enrapt me
So I won’t just stay to play your little whore.
Your world’s so dark and empty
And there’s nothing left to tempt me
Can’t you see that I just don’t give a fuck?
You thought that you could fool me
Glamour me and school me
But it seems you’re finally running out of luck.
While we share a common history
It seems you’ve lost the mystery
That kept me holding on so very long.
I don’t know not what is real;
I can’t remember how to feel;
But I’m sick to death of always being wrong.
I have to let you know now
That you’ve got to let me go now
It’s time for us to exit from this dance.
You know I hate to hurt you –
You deny it, but it’s so true –
You’ve wasted now your final second chance.
So to you I’ll say goodbye;
Don’t expect to see me cry;
As I walk right through the doorway to tomorrow
I wish that we could change –
That things were not so strange –
And that we didn’t have to end in so much sorrow.
I must say goodbye, my dear one;
I hope you find your bright sun;
And pray that you find happiness at last.
Don’t forget about our dreams
Even if they burst along the seams
Just lay a kiss down, and let us fall into the past.
