I Gave My Life Away

I waited for the dark to leave
everything I was once close to
In the streetlight I silently grieve
to the ghost of lovers past

I never knew, I was always blind
to the happiness I had found
I was wrong, you were right
I gave my life away
I’m less alive than the cold, dead earth

I found my way off the beaten track
with the bad luck that kept me going
That has started to feel like an old friend
but it’s a friendship I could do without

I’d gladly trade it in for a day of my old life
where I was oblivious to how everyone cared
Yeah I was selfish but now I’m determined
to lose control for the last time

The End
