Is there ever really a right time
You had led me to believe
Someday you'd be there for me
When the stars above align
When you weren't so consumed
I kept looking for the clues
So I waited in the shadows of my heart
And still the time was never right

Until one day I stopped caring
And began to forget why I longed to be so close
And I disappeared into the darkness
And the darkness turned to pain and never went away
Until all that remained was buried deep beneath the surface

A shell of what things could have been
Tired bones beneath the veil
Of guarded secrets all too frail
Sad to think I never knew
You were searching for the words
For the moment to emerge
Yet the moment never came
You couldn't risk my fragile frame

Until one day you stopped caring
And began to forget why you tried to be so close
And you disappeared into the darkness
And the darkness turn to pain and never went away
Until all that remained was buried deep beneath the surface

I would scream just to be heard
As if yelling at the stars
I was bleeding just to feel
You would never say a word
Kept me reaching in the dark
Always something to conceal

Until one day I stopped scaring
And began to forget why I longed to be so close
And I disappeared into the darkness
And the darkness turned to pain and never went away
Until all that remained was buried deep beneath the surface
Beneath the surface
