when i get tired
(this feeling of lonliness)
i close my eyes
(come meet me)
i walk through my dimly lit mind
(all is empty)
and i begin to pray
(there you are)
find a cure for this strain my heart is feeling
(you smile- it's simple, beautiful)
i begin to wander
(follow me)
into the silence
that's when the i hear it
(follow my heart)
my thoughts rush in like running water
(don't lose me)
breaths turn short and quick
(the once everlasting scent of your skin disappears)
i struggle to keep my head above the water
(i need you)
fading
fading
i fade deeper into a dark peacefulness
(the faint touch of your hand on my cheek)
in my last breath before the darkness takes reign i whisper
(i am because you are)
