In a moment’s breath I stopped frozen beside A still frame of you in the open sky And I fell into a brief dream and I’m lost in the atmosphere I found that death breeds hell and it’s never enough I’m sitting here waiting for a fucking sign to come If I had one chance, now I’d better run towards the streaming sunlight
If you were still here, would you recognize me now? The years that have passed haven’t paid their toll Trapped in disillusion and I’m waning I can’t escape these paintings That haunt the keepsakes Reminding me of the time when you were here
Last year you said there’d be a day you’d leave And I start to question all meanings That were hidden in a cold reprieve and I’m lost in an open maze And then I searched with a never ending passion In resentment of the ashes Do the lives we’ve led really even matter anyway?
In a second’s thought, one chance tonight I can’t keep this crush locked up inside Do you know what it’s like to never say how you feel? It’s a secret that I can’t seem to reveal For the time is lost and the price was steep It was something I couldn’t guarantee It’s a call to arms with the world on high And I spoke too late, too afraid to try At the chapter’s end and the story’s close One final word is read And I’ll look out over the distant city skyline This nostalgia, it’s fucking breaking me down It’s breaking me down again…
