A Lonely Man

My emotions, put right onto the paper.

My life has been marked by anger and failure.

My self-esteem has dropped again.

It’s back to being a self-loathing loner.

Thanks for all the help.

 

Every minute with you I guess was all wasted

I’ll never get to feel again.

I gambled for love and lost my heart,

That’s something I can’t buy back.

The flames have been fed and they’re chasing after me,

I have to answer their questions and I cannot.

You’ve confused and damaged me forever.

I still don’t know why.

Why!?

 

No matter what I’ve done, I’ve been smacked down.

I have no will to try to live free anymore.

Let the darkness devour me

As I fade into the sweet night.

 

Despite what you’ve done,

Just always know…

 

I will welcome you with open arms.

Whoever you want to be is good enough to me.

I will welcome you with open arms.

Whenever you feel is good enough for me.

Just come back!

 

An evil fire has started overtaking me.

My skin has melted away.

You’re nothing but a tainted memory

In an old, broken book.

 

It was all a fake serenade in a blank ball room,

Dancing with an empty soul.

I sold my soul, my life for you!

How can I repair that?

Anger comes in an unfathomable rage!

No advice can take me off the edge.

My mind is gone, you threw it away!

It’s just all gone,

It’s just all gone!

 

It seems as though life has denied me,

Turning away forevermore.

The light is my sworn enemy,

I’ll run into the black.

 

Despite what you’ve done,

Just always know…

 

I will welcome you with open arms.

Whoever you want to be is good enough to me.

I will welcome you with open arms.

Whenever you feel is good enough for me.

Just come back!

 

I’ve learned a lesson through my pain.

Love lost is love never found again.

Hearts were made to be destroyed!

We all were never meant to feel!

Try to tell me I am wrong,

When I am set on what is right!

Back away, I don’t want sympathy.

I just want to be alone…

Forever.

 

Why are the clouds so far away?

Why is my joy just so far away?

Why do I have this terrible anger?

And how did I lose my heart?

 

I want to fly away.

Goodbye, goodbye, I’m gone.

I won’t forgive no one.

So long, I’m away.

I’m going away!

I want to escape this hell…

 

Your destruction of my soul leaves me speechless.

What I gave away was all for a lie.

I never was worth anything at all!

Tell me that it’s not true.

I need answers, but I cannot search anymore,

For what will I find?

There’s nothing to find anymore.

I’ve learned my lessons.

I’ve learned…

 

It looks like I’m done with this.

Turning a page and turning my head.

I won’t waste on you!

I will never go and waste time again.

 

Despite what you’ve done,

Just always know…

 

I will welcome you with open arms.

Whoever you want to be is good enough to me.

I will welcome you with open arms.

Whenever you feel is good enough for me.

Just come back!

 

What have I done?

What have I said?

Why do I want, need you to come…

 

I will welcome pain!

I will bring the pain!

Break me, break me apart…

I’m just a lonely man with a lonely heart…

The End
