lyrics

IF YOU ASKED ME HOW I FELT, WHERE WOULD I START?

I THINK THERE’S SOMETHING MIS-WIRED IN MY HEART
ALL THESE CHEMICAL IMBALANCES IN MY BRAIN
ARE A FRACTION OF WHAT YOU DO TO ME

I CAN’T COUNT THE NIGHTS I’VE LAID ON THE FLOOR
I TURN OFF THE LIGHTS AND I LOCK THE DOORS
I SCREAM AT THE CEILING AND I START TO PRAY
I BELIEVE IN GOD, IF ONLY JUST FOR THE NIGHT
JUST FOR THE NIGHT

I’LL NEVER FIND ANOTHER WHO BELIEVES THESE DREAMS
NEVER FIND SOMEONE WHO WON’T LEAVE ME EMPTY
I WILL ALWAYS WISH THAT I WAS SOMEWHERE ELSE
I WILL ALWAYS WISH I COULD HAVE LOVED MYSELF

SO DON’T LEAVE ME WITHOUT PROMISING
THAT YOU’LL COME BACK
I’LL BE RIGHT WHERE YOU LEFT ME

I’M AFRAID I’LL ALWAYS BE THIS ALONE
I’M AFRAID THAT, MAYBE, I AM JUST A GHOST
CAUSE I’VE ALWAYS FELT THAT I’M ALREADY DEAD
AND JUST WAITING FOR MY HEART TO STOP BEATING

IN ANOTHER LIFE, OH, I WOULD HAVE A CHANCE
TO BE LOVED AND FILLED WITH HAPPINESS
THERE’S ANOTHER ME OUT THERE WHO SCREAMS
OUT OF JOY AND NOT OUT OF MISERY

SO DON’T LEAVE ME WITHOUT PROMISING
THAT YOU’LL COME BACK
I’LL BE RIGHT WHERE YOU LEFT ME
