Efthimios William Cornelius

right where you left me

 

 

Hey there old friend,

your voice still lingers.

 Oh where are you now?

Life sure has passed me by,

 time sure has fallen behind. 

Oh what can’t you see? 

 

From the sands, where ever I am,

where ever you are, the glass one day will break

and my memories will be erased.  

I call it as I see it,

Its just the way it is,

 

I’m still standing here

with or with out you.

My voice still  remains the same,

I’m right where you left me,

My hands are tied around your throat,  

Please don’t let me die alone. 

I’m still standing here

with or with out you.

My voice still  remains the same, 

I’m right where you left me.

 

No, my mind is playing tricks again.

Can you tell me who you are?

I just cant put you away,

Nothing comes to life

Its just like that.

 

From the sands, where ever I am,

where you are the glass one day will break

and my memories will be erased . 

I call it as I see it,

Its just the way it is.

 

I’m still standing here

with or with out you.

My voice still  remains the same,

I’m right where you left me,

My hands are tied around your throat,  

Please don’t let me die alone. 

I’m still standing here

with or with out you.

My voice still  remains the same, 

I’m right where you left me.

 

If letting go, just means saying goodby.

then I guess I must do it once again.

The glass has shattered long ago,

but it still comes in and out.

 

I’m still standing here

with or with out you.

My voice still  remains the same,

I’m right where you left me,

My hands are tied around your throat,  

Please don’t let me die alone. 

I’m still standing here

with or with out you.

My voice still  remains the same, 

I’m right where you left me.
