Another night by the waters edge

Fantasized giving her my last breath

As her touch hugged my skin 

She whispered this is not the end

I looked to heaven but refused to pray

He's never had anything to say

There's nothing that's kept me here

There's nothing else left to fear

I can't remember if it's him I taunt

Or is it these ghosts that live to haunt

I hate when people pretend to care

They'll never understand my stare

They say my thoughts are too dark 

They've never sought out my heart

I tell myself just one more day

I might find another way

To end all the madness

I can't help what happened

With all the years that leads

Me coming back to the sea
