lyrics

We were young, free and naive
We had nothing to lose
We could do what we wanted all day
Without giving a fuck about what people would say
This world of ours;
We had it conquered
Listening to no one
This was our time

It happened so fast
We were torn apart
There was nothing left
I was due to depart
Butterflies wouldn't leave my stomach
There was no going back
We'd both prayed this day wouldn't come
But it soon crept up on us
We tried to resist
But we were forced to conform

I wanted to tell you it'd be fine
But i couldn't bring myself to lie
I couldn't stand that look in your eye
I needed a place to hide
I was left devastated
And the distance between us grew
Until it was unbearable

I was suffering
I struggled to keep on track
But finally we were reunited
And you looked at me blankly, and i soon realised
I was a stranger to you now, i'd been replaced
You didn't even remember my face

All grown up; now i'm a man
With nothing to love but the fading past
No faith, no trust, no hope, no love
I am but a ghost with no substance
Where has my life gone?
Bitterness and hatred build up inside of me
As i sit in my desolate room
Staring into empty space, into nothing
Waiting to die
Alone.
