No-one told me this was the deal
I didnt think that anybody cared
Nobody said that if I wasnt here your heart would break
But you cant make me guilty
No matter how you try
Ive felt guilty too many times
There are no more tears to cry
The fire here is smouldering
Its nearly burnt out and cold
Like the inner reaches of my soul
Its tired and its old
Unaffected by guilt and love and the sounds that make hearts break
Ill say it once, but that is all,
Im sorry I was late.
The hunger cannot reach me as I pile out of the door
The world is waiting for me, I need to leave
I used to hate leaving you here
My heart tugged at my soul and eyes
But now its not so bad.
They question my intentions, where did I go?
The old me died with the fire
Several nights ago
Not really an almighty loss, a born loser and a cheat
But people say they miss the spark
Their pleas fall on deaf ears
The spark that made me human
Ran away to better lands, a shame
I should have gone there too.
The guilt that used to kill me,
Left through the open gate
I will not cry, worry or swear,
I m sorry I was late.
The scene that awaited me
Was hard to bear
My soul, ripped out
Was crying, standing there
You let me go, I wont come back, Ill drag you to your grave
Your allies are depraved
Of sensitivity and warmth
That you used to save.
Youve tarnished all you ever did
Theres no point going on.
The words they stung at first
Because they were true
But it wont make me change my ways
Because I was deaf to all such insults, emotions drag you to hell!
I let it go, it wont come back, itll drag me to my grave
Ill say it only once again,
