All alone in the world
full of disgrace, and disgust.

this must have been my heart,
turning to dark mold.
Crusty and dry,
my high was fading,
and my eyes cried to a certain soul.
They all abandoned me,
and left me for dead.
As for what they forgot,

I still scroll your page
Keeping my distance
I cry, but not because I'm hurt
My tears are for you
My hope is for you
My person is better for loving you

the bed has grown cold
and you're feeling lost and adrift,
when the days feel empty
and the nights far too long,
just remember, I gave you a gift.

Openly with heart-felt truth.
I don't want lies; they'll bring demise,
And we'll fall apart in our hearts and minds.

It's what we've made, but it has caved,
And the hurt I feel won't wash away.
Love me not, yet love still I
All you are though love has died.
