in my mind

What is it that I got when I’m feeling down?

What is it that gnaws on me when you aint around?

What is it that aches inside that I can’t get out?

What is it that screams for you but leaves me with doubt?

Who is there to go to? Who is there to turn?

Why can’t things work for me, so many bridges I burn.

They say with age comes wisdom, but all I feel is numb.

They say the right one will come along, but all you do is run.

 

I cry out to my god, please fill me with light.

I cry from the deepest part of me, god, please make it right.

But all I get are whispers, whispers of loss and pain.

It takes a hold of me, makes me feel insane.

I need a new distraction, one that will kill time.

One so powerful, thoughts of you left behind.

Don’t want to feel this helpless, so out of control.

When I shut it all out, I’m just left feeling cold.

 

I don’t want to chase after you, oh how I obsess.

But getting you in my site, is what I do best.

I play it all out, a million times in my mind.

Why can’t you see you and me? Give it some time.

I’m calling for you baby, please reach out for me.

I can’t take this silence, this love is a disease.

Do you know what you do to me, do you care?

You twist me all around, can’t take this despair.

 

I cry out to my god, please fill me with light.

I cry from the deepest part of me, god, please make it right.

But all I get are whispers, whispers of loss and pain.

It takes a hold of me, makes me feel insane.

I need a new distraction, one that will kill time.

One so powerful, thoughts of you left behind.

Don’t want to feel this helpless, so out of control.

When I shut it all out, I’m just left feeling cold.

 

I want to be the one you pick, the one you choose.

You calm the stormy waters inside, that is what you do.

I need to be your sun and moon, but it must come from you.

You must yearn for me first, that is what you must do.

But for now all I have of you, is unrequited love.

It’s dark and it’s cold on this edge. Give me a shove.

I want to fall forever, don’t throw me a rope.

For truly the worst feeling for me, is that of hope.

 

I cry out to my god, please fill me with light.

I cry from the deepest part of me, god, please make it right.

But all I get are whispers, whispers of loss and pain.

It takes a hold of me, makes me feel insane.

I need a new distraction, one that will kill time.

One so powerful, thoughts of you left behind.

Don’t want to feel this helpless, so out of control.

When I shut it all out, I’m just left feeling cold.
