lyrics

Why is it so hard to let things go,
especially, the ones we loved?
Why must we feel the way we do,
holding onto what brings us down?



Bring me the sun,
I'm getting weary of this clouded sky.
Open my eyes and let me see, let me see the light.

If you could hear me...

Take me away, set me free,
please put an end to this misery.
I've tried my best to not give in;
to find solace in this sinking ship.

Serenity seems so far away
when depression's holding you down.
While I'm falling deeper day by day,
this battle will put me in the ground.

Time to time, I wish I could control
and erase what's on my mind,
but fear has overcome this soul
while hope has left me behind.

Standing on the edge of self-affliction;
in my eyes, I see death as the only salvation.

What brings hope when you're already dead inside,
and you feel like giving it all up?
Where is hope when heaven stops,
for I've lost myself deep within the hell inside my head?

Is this love?

If this is love, then I don't want to feel;
numb my heart that I cannot heal.
Just close my eyes and lay me to rest;
let me escape, let me escape...

Standing on the edge of self-affliction;
in my eyes, I see death as the only salvation.

Take me away, set me free,
please put an end to this misery.
I've tried my best to not give in;
to find solace in this sinking ship.

Take me away, set me free...
