Remedy (Inspired by the Musical Rent, Based on the song "Light My Candle")

Loneliness is a disease that eats at me like cancer.

When I burn a bridge it kills me even faster.  

I'm a ex believer, searching for a brand new alter. 

Maybe you can be my temporary cure or holy water. 

 

Reality has made me so numb that I can't even feel. 

I slip in and out of day dreams, I can never tell what's real. 

Help me from the silence that's becoming deadly. 

Don't need love, just be my temporary remedy. 

 

I don't need another half I'm already complete. 

I don't need a movie romance to sweep me off my feet. 

Help me take a sad song and make it feel upbeat. 

Be my shelter from the real world, snow and sleet. 

 

Reality has made me so numb that I can't even feel. 

I slip in and out of da dreams, I can never tell what's real. 

Help me from the silence that's becoming deadly. 

Don't need love, just be my temporary remedy. 

 

I just want to feel something, I'm not your destiny. 

I just want to escape the dark, please be my clarity. 

I just want to alleviate this pain all over me. 

Cure the cancer for a while, be my remedy. 

 

Reality has made me so numb that I can't even feel. 

I slip in and out of day dreams, I can never tell what's real. 

Help me from the silence that's becoming deadly. 

Don't need love, just be my temporary remedy.
