For You I Failed


Do you ever...
Feel like screaming
Your lungs away
For no reason

Do you ever...
Feel like flying
From your body
Into freedom

Lover hold me
Lover leave me
Lover save me
From these demons

A mile I'll take
An inch you gave
Good intentions pave
A brand new day
A brand new dawn
By dusk I'm torn
Fighting the Wolves
They smell your blood
Your innocence
An inch you gave
A mile I'll take
I'll saviour the day
I was nearly saved
but I craved the pain
You took away

I hope I'll hope
One day you'll see
Kindness can't kill
This kind of madness

I run I run
Away away
To find a way
Of dealing with
This reality
These spinning reels
Behind my mind
My personal film
Piercing watery film
Covering green eyes
A sea of tears
A sense of fear
For all to see
For all to hear
Don't stand so near
You can't be here
I Can't stand the way
You see so clear

For you I tried
For you I failed
For you I hide
For you I bailed
