I'm so afraid to love you, but more afraid to loose.
Clinging to a past that doesn't let me choose. Once there was a darkness, deep and endless night. You gave me everything you had, oh you gave me light. And I will remember you. Will you remember me? Don't let your life pass you by. Weep not for the memories.

Show you all the beauty you possess, if you only let yourself believe.
So tired of this straight line, and everywhere you turn There's vultures and thieves at your back The storm keeps on twisting, you keep on building the lies That you make up for all that you lack.

Cause I rely on my illusions, to keep me warm at night.
I've denied in my capacity to love, and I am willing to give up this fight
