Dark Side Of Me

Album: The Afterman: Descension (2013)
  • In those discouraging days
    I always missed the mark
    When we were comfort and close
    I would neglect to keep

    Oh, you safe and unexposed
    A portrait of time repeats
    This moment now replaced
    With an empty wish to give
    I give, I gave

    I gave my everything
    For all the wrong things
    In this cold reality I made
    This selfish war machine

    Oh, this has become hell
    How can I share this life
    With someone else?
    I promise you
    There is no weight that can bury us
    Beneath the ghosts of all my guilt

    Here in the dark side of me
    Here in the dark side of me

    Now in your absence I wade
    Through the coursing, lonely, lost
    And in this tragic dismay
    I never could believe what I became

    I gave my everything
    For all the wrong things
    In this cold reality I made
    This welcomed war machine

    Oh, this has become hell
    How can I share this life
    With someone else?
    I promise you
    There is no weight that can bury us
    Beneath the ghosts of all my guilt

    Here in the dark side of me
    Here in the dark side of me
    Here in the dark side of me
    Here in the dark side of me

    Oh, I couldn't give you
    What you needed
    It's all my fault
    Too coward to believe I lost it all

    I gave my everything
    For all the wrong things
    In this cold reality I made
    This selfish war machine

    Oh, this has become hell
    How can I share this life
    With someone else?
    I promise you
    There is no weight that can bury us
    Beneath the ghosts of all my guilt

    Here in the dark side of me
    Here in the dark side of me
    Here in the dark side of me
    Here in the dark side of me Writer/s: CLAUDIO SANCHEZ, TRAVIS STEVER
