Run you coward, you run
These words crippled my confidence
The hymn I can't escape from
This is over and done with
This race had made me more than weary, I am dead

I created everything here that I wanted to see
So what that your plan, to leave me out?
We were all reciting messages and pushing repeat
But this world you made does it let you breathe?
Does it let you feel anything but yourself?
When was the last time?

Does it let you breathe?
Does it let you feel anything but yourself?
When was the last time you saw anyone else?

Whispers and echoes of love fading

The plans you made, you wanted it
The bitter taste, you wanted it
What god became, you wanted it
But the one thing you need, you'll never get
There was more of you and less of me
You blamed it on the chemistry
Can you close your eyes and when you rest your head?
It didn't have to be this way, but you wanted it

They were just calendar days
I'm sure it's all written down
But if you'll let me just ask
Is this how you bring the crowd to their feet?
You hurt because it wasn't about you (About me?)
You're always scared the floor is gonna give way (I call the shots!)
We could end this, we could end this (Don't you ever tell me what I've got)

Whispers and echoes of love fading

The plans you made, you wanted it
The bitter taste, you wanted it
What god became, you wanted it
But the one thing you need, you'll never get
There was more of you and less of me
You blamed it on the chemistry
Can you close your eyes and when you rest your head?
It didn't have to be this way, but you wanted it

I wanted!
I wanted!
I wanted!
I wanted this!

You made it such a lonely world
Such a very lonely world
You bent the answers into questions
You let the voice go unheard
And you couldn't trust yourself
Cause what if everything you felt
Meant this was not yours alone
Every single word
Every single little word that was said
And all the simple fears
And all the nights that you cried in your bed
Hoping I was there but you told yourself
You're old and alone
But you were never the widow
You left on your own

I was washed in the blood
I was born of a spirit but I drowned
When you found me out there

Rejoice!
Rejoice the old King is dead!
Long live the new king!
I am the new King!

Whispers and echoes of love fading

The plans you made, you wanted it
The bitter taste, you wanted it
What god became, you wanted it
But the one thing you need, you'll never get
There was more of you and less of me
You blamed it on the chemistry
Can you close your eyes and when you rest your head?
It didn't have to be this way, but you wanted it
