Tell your heart to hold on tight
There's going to be a storm tonight
Nothing can save you
Though you've done no wrong
But you'll drown in the flood
Before too long
Your knees will buckle
And your hands will shake
You'll lose your breath
And your voice will break
Do what you can
Save what you hold dear
But don't fool yourself
You won't be coming back here
It's hurling toward you
Like a bat out of Hell
The feeling inside you
You know all too well
It begins to get dark
As you cling to the last bit of light
It's hope against hope
No one to make it all right
Just go to the window
And look up at the stars
You'll find me there
If you try really hard
It may seem like a dream
But it's all too real
You've laid yourself out
For the vultures to steal
Promises made
Soft words were spoken
What is it they say...?
"Promises were made to be broken"
Disenchanted and frail
Distant gaze and skin so pale
It's almost over now
Just take your last breath
It feels sort of like sleep
But it's actually Death
"It's You, It's You,
It's all for you,
Everything I do..."
