Take my breath away, I don’t need it anyway

cause I’m fine here in my old forgotten world

where I can be myself, left with the hand I’m dealt

and it’s hard to get a grip when you’re holding onto something you just let slip away

Pre-Chorus

chords are played arpeggiated by an acoustic guitar

All these thoughts stuck in my mind

spinning round like endless

time for once in my mind

Chorus

chords are played by piano and bass

I do wanna feel something you call real

I don’t think that I’ve got time for these scars to heal

And the days just go by leaving questions in my mind

I guess I’ll find the answers some day in another life

guitar plays a lead riff under that (repeated x2):

Here with my old friend, the silence in the end

And it rings so loud that I cannot pretend

I just close my eyes and ask a thousand whys

Will it change or stay the same? Will it ever go away?

The question still remains

Warning signs read desolation

On the road of desperation

Happiness machines, I’m coming clean

What can you do for me?

And the days just go by leaving questions in my mind

I guess I’ll find the answers some day in another life
