We were a only whisper. A shadow at sunset. A black dawn Across crimson skies. We were embers touching In the mist and dew Not meant to become or last.
But how can I see you happy? I wonder if that smile is real. It looks like the ones you gave me.
Tell me, Are your words the same too? Do you touch the same Fading dream, only to wake up Beside another face And wish it was me? Do you scream and catch fire Everyday in silence, Like the secrets we kept alone? Do you think of me on your neck And between breaths While you remember The moments we hid from the world?
I would have ran with you. I would have plunged in to that Burning sky and be blinded, Knowing I'm with you everyday. But instead I'm drowning alone In your fears.
I close my eyes And all I see are Red daggers in the dark, In waves of time and loss Knowing that you're gone. How can I live With what we've made? I am still there and awake. And you must be too.
I can't sleep. I was over this... Until I saw you without me.
