why am I still holding on
when I know you’re forever gone?
I wish you were coming back
but shining light has turned to black
I’ve spent too long on this aimless train
time for me to accept the pain

but I cannot decide
if I would rather hide
watching you just to be near
or close my eyes and disappear

it hurts my heart to let you go
so I stay alone in your shadow
buried in my hopeless dreams
quiet outside while my inside screams
remembering what we used to be
wishing again to be you and me
