LYRICS

LOST WHISPERS

Lost whispers

Awaken within me

And fly...

EVEN IN DEATH (2016)
Give me a reason to believe that you're gone
I see your shadow so I know they're all wrong
Moonlight on the soft brown earth
It leads me to where you lay
They took you away from me but now I'm taking you home

I will stay forever here with you, my love
The softly spoken words you gave me
Even in death our love goes on

Some say I'm crazy for my love, oh my love
But no bonds can hold me from your side, oh my love
They don't know you can't leave me
They don't hear you singing to me

I will stay forever here with you, my love
The softly spoken words you gave me
Even in death our love goes on
And I can't love you any more than I do

I will stay forever here with you, my love
The softly spoken words you gave me
Even in death our love goes on
And I can't love you any more than I do
MISSING

Please, please, please
Can you stop the fire?

Can you stand to fight her?

You can't stop the fire

You won't say the words

Please, please forgive me
But I won't be home again
Maybe someday you'll look up
And barely conscious you'll say to no one
Isn't something missing?

You won't cry for my absence, I know
You forgot me long ago
Am I that unimportant?
Am I so insignificant?
Isn't something missing?
Isn't someone missing me?

Even though I'm the sacrifice
You won't try for me, not now
Though I'd die to know you love me
I'm all alone
Isn't someone missing me?

Please, please, please
Can you stop the fire?

Can you stand to fight her?

You can't stop the fire

You won't say the words

Please, please forgive me
But I won't be home again
I know what you do to yourself
I breathe deep and cry out
Isn't something missing?
Isn't someone missing me?

Even though I'm the sacrifice
You won't try for me, not now
Though I'd die to know you love me
I'm all alone
Isn't someone missing me?

And if I bleed, I'll bleed
Knowing you don't care
And if I sleep just to dream of you
I'll wake without you there
Isn't something missing?
Isn't something...

Even though I'm the sacrifice
You won't try for me, not now
Though I'd die to know you love me
I'm all alone
Isn't something missing me?
Isn't someone missing me?

Please, please, please
Can you stop the fire?

Can you stand to fight her?

You can't stop the fire

You won't say the words
Please

FARTHER AWAY
I took their smiles and I made them mine
I sold my soul just to hide the light
And now I see what I really am
A thief, a whore, and a liar
 
I run to you
And run away from this hell
Call out your name
Giving up, giving in
I see you there
Still you are
Farther away
 
I’m numb to you
Numb and deaf and blind
You give me all but the reason why
I reach but I feel only air at night
Not you, not love, just nothing
 
I run to you
And run away from this hell
Call out your name
Giving up, giving in
I see you there
Still you are
Farther away
 
Tried to forget you
But without youI feel nothing
Don’t leave me here
By myself
I can't breathe
 
I run to you
And run away from this hell
Call out your name
Giving up, giving in
I see you there
Still you are
Farther away
 
I run to you
And run away from this hell
Call out your name
Giving up, giving in
I see you there
Still you are
Farther away
Farther away
Farther away
Farther away
Farther away
Farther away
BREATHE NO MORE
I've been looking in the mirror for so long
That I've come to believe my soul's on the other side
All the little pieces falling, shatter
Shards of me too sharp to put back together

Too small to matter
But big enough to cut me into so many little pieces
If I try to touch her

And I bleed
I bleed
And I breathe
I breathe no more

Take a breath and I try to draw from my spirit's well
Yet again you refuse to drink like a stubborn child
Oh! lie to me, convince me that I've been sick forever
And all of this will make sense when I get better

But I know the difference
Between myself and my reflection
I just can't help but to wonder
Which of us do you love?

So I bleed
I bleed
And I breathe
I breathe no-

Bleed
I bleed
And I breathe
I breathe
I breathe
I breathe no more
IF YOU DON'T MIND
Where's the light
Killed my day
Lost in the dark of your ways
Wasting my energy, endlessly
On your sweet lie

And if you don't mind 
I would like to live the lie that I will survive
And if you don't mind
I would love to slip away and leave your world behind

Insecure, I'm not so sure that
You're not just faking something
Wasting our last day
I can't take the pain, babe

And if you don't mind
I would like to live the lie that I will survive
And if you don't mind
I would love to slip away and leave it all behind

And if you don't mind
I would like to live the lie that I will survive
And if you don't mind
If you don't mind
TOGETHER AGAIN
Never thought that I'd be leaving you today
So alone and wondering why I feel this way
So wide the world
Can love remember how to get me home to you
Someday

We'll be together again
All just a dream in the end
We'll be together again

So many fears were swimming around and around in my mind
Who would have dreamed the secrets we would find

I've found a world where love and dreams and darkness all collide
Maybe this time we can leave our broken world behind

We'll be together again
All just a dream in the end
THE LAST SONG I'M WASTING ON YOU
Sparkling grey
They're my own veins

Any more than a whisper
Any sudden movement of my heart
And I know
I know I'll have to watch them pass away

Just get through this day

Give up your way
You could be anything
Give up my way
And lose myself

Not today
That's too much guilt to pay

Sickened in the sun
You dare tell me you love me
But you held me down and screamed you wanted me to die
Honey you know
You know I'd never hurt you that way

You're just so pretty in your pain

Give up my way
And I could be anything
I'll make my own way
Without your senseless
Hate
Hate
Hate
Hate

So run
Run
Run
And hate me
If it feels good
I can't hear your screams anymore

You lied to me
But I'm older now
And I'm not buying baby

Demanding my response
Don't bother breaking the door down
I found my way out

And you'll never hurt me again
NEW WAY TO BLEED

Serve your twisted enemy
So you might earn forgiveness
You know your whole world is waiting
So why can't you speak?

I feel it coming over me
I'm still a slave to these dreams
Is this the end of everything
Or just a new way to bleed?

So go and tell all your friends that I'm a failure underneath
If it makes you feel like a bigger man
But it's my, my heart, my life that you're calling a lie
I've played this game before
And I can't take anymore

I feel it coming over me
I'm still a slave to these dreams
Is this the end of everything?
Or just a new way to bleed?

By drifting far beyond the edge
Freedom, freedom, can't you feel the ground caving in?
Freedom, give us a reason to believe again

I feel it coming over me
I'm still a slave to these dreams
Is this the end of everything?
Or just a new way to bleed?

SAY YOU WILL

It's taking you too long to decide
And I don't want to be the one, the one
Crying over wasted time
If you think you're strong enough to let me in
Then come on stand up and be honest, be honest

I'm tired of feeling so alone
'Cause you won't let me understand (Let me understand)
I don't want to pretend
I want to feel, I want to live

Say you will or say you won't
Open your heart to me
Now or never tell the truth
Is this real, is this real?

Whenever you're around I can't fight it
You get under my skin in a way that I like it
And I can't take anymore
Tell me what you want from me or leave me alone
'Cause I'm all caught up and I'm losing control

I'm tired of holding on so tight
When you won't let me understand (Let me understand)
Now I'm falling apart
I never meant to lose myself

Say you will or say you won't
Open your heart to me
Now or never tell the truth
Is this real, is this real?
Say you will or say you won't
Open your heart to me
Now or never tell the truth
Is this real, is this real?

Like drops of rain
Against my heart
Cut through like silver
And I want to make you feel that way
And I want to make you feel the way that I do

Say you will or say you won't
Open your heart to me
Now or never tell the truth
Is this real?
Say you will or say you won't
Open your heart to me
Now or never tell the truth
Is this real, is this real?

DISAPPEAR

Hollow, like you don't remember me
Underneath everything I guess I always dreamed
That I would be the one to take you away from all this wasted pain
But I can't save you from yourself

Don't you want to feel?
Don't you want to live your life?
How much longer are you gonna give into the fear?
Holding you down until you're frozen
I can't let you fall apart
You don't even know what you've done to me
But I would be the one to take you away from all this wasted pain
If you could just wake up

Don't you want to feel?
Don't you want to live your life?
How much longer are you gonna give into the fear?
Holding you down until you're

All alone
All alone and drowning in your past
Take it back
Take it back, I still believe you can

Don't you want to feel?
Don't you want to live your life?
How much longer are you gonna give into the fear?
I can't go on pretending
So give me something real
No one in your way but you
How much longer are you gonna give into the fear?
Holding you down 'til you disappear

SECRET DOOR

Turn out the lights
Feed the fire 'til my soul breaks free
My heart is high as the waves above me
Don't need to understand
Too lost to lose

Don't fight my tears 'cause they feel so good
And I, I will remember how to fly
Unlock the heavens in my mind
Follow my love back through the same secret door

Look past the end
It's a dream as it's always been
All life lives on if we've ever loved it

And I, I will remember how to fly
Unlock the heavens in my mind
Follow my love back through the same secret door

I, I will remember how to fly
Unlock the heavens in my mind
Follow my love back through the same secret door
