  • I had always pictured a future by your side
    But now we feel like strangers and I have lost all I've known
    I'm trying to think, I'm trying to move on, but I can't with the state I'm in
    Oh is there a future is there a time when you and I will be alright?

    You catch my eye in the mirror
    (She's the only one that haunts me)
    You stare intense like your with her
    You stay inside through this winter
    (She's the only one that haunts me)
    Scream inside keep your heart on fire or it'll wither, it'll wither

    What am I supposed to say, when I've chewed you up and spat you out like a bad taste
    And my heart's a shade of grey that's getting darker by the day
    You wait and wait for things to change but when will time become too late
    'Cause time will tick and I'll stay the same
    My heart won't heal this way so

    Catch my eye in the mirror
    (She's the only one that haunts me)
    Stare intense like your with her
    You stay inside through this winter
    (She's the only one that haunts me)
    Scream inside keep your heart on fire or it'll wither, it'll wither

    If you hold my hand tonight (Dare you to let me go)
    And if you keep your heart alight (Dare you to let me go)
    Will you find me in the darkness? (Dare you to let me go)
    And will you hold on to me tight (Dare you to let me go)
    Well if you hold my hand tonight (Dare you to let me go)
    And if you keep your heart alight (Dare you to let me go)
    Will you find me in the darkness (Dare you to let me go)
    Or will you hold on to me tight

    You catch my eye in the mirror
    You stare intense like your with her
    Stay inside through this winter
    Scream inside keep your heart on fire or it'll wither, it'll wither
    You catch my eye in the mirror
    (She's the only one that haunts me)
    You stare intense like your with her
    Stay inside through this winter
    Scream inside keep your heart on fire or it'll wither, it'll wither Writer/s: DAVID ANDREW RAWLING, JAMES THOMAS GILLETT, JOE SAVINS, MICHAEL JOHN CHAPMAN, SAMUEL GEORGE DOUGLAS
