What Once Was Mine

I feel so alone, surrounded by these people
I'm saddened because they once were real
Fake words and broken promises
The emptiness needs more time to heal

Losing grip of everything you once knew
Watching it all fall from your fingertips
Reaching out trying to grasp what was lost
But it's too far out of sight to try and fix

I can't let it go-not now, not ever
As it slowly sinks deep into the ocean
It once was mine, my sanity, my treasure
Now all trust is lost and friendships broken

It leaves me standing here all by myself
In a room full of people that I used to know
I feel the dagger twist through my heart
But my body has been numb since a long time ago

Goodbye, goodbye, I say to the silence
To the bitter, the hurt, and the lies
To the setting of the sun at the end of the day
And to all the things that once were mine
