So you know

Post by Eric » Thu Oct 02, 2014 7:49 am

Of all the things I had to lose
Those moments in my past
I needed the chance, I had to chose
Now my body will not last
My light has faded and now im lost
Why cant it leave me be?
Everything came at a cost
But this pain was always free
I would give back, everything
Even the pleasures I recall
If I could find the voice to sing
And strength to once again stand tall
I lost the power, to achieve
When I saw you walk out that door
My emotion dripping from my sleeve
I cant take this pain no more
Burdened guilt and fading smile
I hide my fate from some
I had hoped this would have taken awhile
But it seems the end has come
Scattered leaves of my dieing shade
Had littered my sights to see
Again i have fallen on this blade
Even as I beg and plea
But remorse has dug itself so deep
I am losing all control
If you can not, have me to keep
Remember you already have my soul
