Jaded Hearts

It's all about the ache and pain that departure can bring

I look into your eyes
And heaven fell so swiftly upon me
Another deep breath, how lucky I am to be alive
Another goodbye before you spread your wings

At a loss for words to say
This shock and awe holds me in place
I held it tightly before the moment slips away
How lucky I feel that I'm alive

Before the day comes around again
Another night I wished never to end
I'm breathless, weightless this once my friend
Before the north wind comes, and leaves me condemned

What remains of me
Nothing but barely alive
What remains of me
Nothing but a half-life

I gazed and I'm burdened once more
Heaven sweeter to taste, left me cold, bitter
Sinking ever deeper, I feel nothing but torn
Imploding, ruined, I cannot wait to close my eyes

What remains of me
Nothing but barely alive
What remains of me
Nothing but a half-life

Another song
And the last notes begin to fade
Souls in shade, hearts jaded
Why does the world have to change

What remains of me
Nothing but barely alive
What remains of me
Nothing but a half-life

The End
