  • Baby! why are you doing this to me?
    Sweetheart! are those your eyes staring straight back at me?
    Angel! I see your smile everywhere!
    Darling! Stop!

    Night falls and I'm running in circles
    I'm being chased by my imagination

    Tell me I'm forgiven say you'll always be mine
    Say that everything is over, tell me I'm fine...
    No one deserves to live like this
    (2x)

    I touch your lips and stare in your eyes
    You smile and it makes me fly
    You are the reason my heart beats
    Tonight it's just you and me...

    Night as dark as my thoughts sets the scene for my return
    Lightning nips at my heels as I race home
    Wearily I stagger towards the song of her pale voice
    Demons jeer my attempt to be free

    Tell me I'm forgiven say you'll always be mine
    Say that everything is over, tell me I'm fine...
    No one deserves to live like this
    (2x)

    I touch your lips and stare in your eyes
    You smile and it makes me fly
    You are the reason my heart beats
    Tonight it's just you and me...

    Windows cast her gentle reflection
    Her somber silhouette dances for me
    Dear God, it's her

    Look at you, you miserable fool
    Get off your knees, your prayers fall upon deaf ears
    Gods turned his back on you, heavens gates are shut
    And now you're knocking on the devil's door

    I've been expecting you for some time, sir
    Allow me to introduce myself
    I'm the one who pulls on all the strings, son
    You're lucky I don't kill you where you stand

    This can't be real
    Tonight I raise my glass
    There's nothing left
    For I know it's time to move on
    All hope has failed
    My patience will not last
    I've lost my soul
    Tomorrow I will be gone Writer/s: DENNIS LAVELL LEE, DENNIS LEE, JACOB WARREN CAMPBELL, JEREMY BRYAN, PATRICK M. THOMPSON, PATRICK THOMPSON, SHANE DONOVAN CRUMP, SHAWN MILKE
