There's no beauty in your flower bed
I wish I was dead

Swing Low Chariot
This place don't feel like home
I feel alive
When I'm all alone
Swing Low Chariot
These words you'll never know
I can't face this on my own

Maybe I'm the distant one
And maybe I'm at fault
Can't carry the burden
of this anymore

I'm the distant One
Absent mind, absent heart
This is all my fault

Wearing our scars on our sleeves and our hearts
Falling for you, falling apart
I am the distant one

Because I became infatuated with your beauty
Like I want your ever consuming presence in my life,
And even though you're gone, every word you've ever said to me I still find myself holding onto
The very thought of you not knowing how I feel is tearing me in two and it hurts all the same, because I lie awake at night clutching my chest in pain
Trying to understand this mess that's in my head, and wash it all away
I still listen to your favourite records every single day, in a hope that I'll find a sign to tell me what that the love we had is real and I'm a fool for trying to throw this away

Your smile, oh how I miss your smile
You could outshine a thousand suns
and I can still feel your hand in mine, but I can't keep living a lie.
Walking the razor's edge, I can't keep living a lie

Exposing our fears and our scars, just trying to love again
(Expose our fears, expose our scars)
