lyrics

If I let you in, will I sink or swim?
Knowing that it would be wrong, with sorrows still I pull you close.

If you let me in, would it be a sin to tell you I'm in "love" with you?

To love at all is to be vulnerable,
so lock your heart away and swallow the key.

This desire has made me miserable;
falling for someone like you, whom I thought I could see through.

These walls between us seem to be unbreakable;
if I tear down my end, Darling, will you do the same?

If I let you in, will I sink or swim?
Knowing that it would be wrong, with sorrows, still I pull you close.

If you let me in, would it be a sin to tell you I'm in "love" with you?

This loneliness has become an affliction...

Open yourself and let me swim inside,
while our spirits intertwined in this endless lust.
Wipe your tears away, we can be one tonight.
Let me be the sun in your eyes.

"Give me some time, I'll change myself for you;
will you wait here for me?
You can't say I never tried; it's hard to let you in.
I could never let you in..."

I will give you all the time you need.
No, don't you ever change a thing.
I've been waiting way too long.

I know you've tried to let me in, but it feels like I'm sinking...

Our promises and our memories don't matter now;
did they ever matter to you?
I hope you know nothing lasts forever.

Nothing lasts forever, but if you allow it, I'd drown a part of me inside of you.
So don't you forget me, don't you forget...

Close your eyes, the dawn is here...
Close your eyes with me.
