It's cold and dark here

It's cold and dark here on my own

my breath is fading, suffocating

and I can't seem to find my home

 

I thought my home was here with you,

but just like every other place

the faces change, names rearrange

and still I end up all alone

 

forced to watch as life anew

slowly fades before my eyes

heart is frozen, love departed

no more need to compromise

 

I thought this time would be forever,

believing in those sacred vows

I loved you deep and without measure, but you couldn't even see the treasure

standing right in front of you.
