Lyrics Edit

Let me help you, how much longer until you realize
You're getting worse, it's killing you inside
I can't break through, feel you have to face this on your own
Want to be left alone

Don't leave me now, don't leave me now
I know that it's tearing you apart
Don't leave me now, don't leave me now
Come alive

You feel I'm asking too much of you, but can't let go
Fear breeds the hate and your apathy, empty and hollow
You lost your faith, there's no getting through. Why shut me out?
Frantic, disturbed, filled with misery, can't figure it out

Sleepless, worse for wear
Staring at the ceiling
Numb, sedated, intoxicated

Deafening, deafening
Shut it out, shut it out
Burning, burning
No way out, no way out

Don't leave me now, don't leave me now
I know that it's tearing you apart
Don't leave me now, don't leave me now
Come alive

Asked me to listen
Can't go on to face another day
I lied, not admitting
What I lost is still in you

Something's missing
You see darkness in my eyes
Maculate, there is no cure
Playing over to stop pretending
Warped inside, it's never ending tide

Don't leave me now, don't leave me now
Don't leave me now
Don't leave me now, don't leave me now
Don't leave me now
