Home, And Gone By Nine.
I don't remember what you look like now,
And even when i see you,
The persona projected just for show,
Casts a shadow where you are.
I have everything i could want now,
Except the only thing i ever wanted,
Someone who loves me more than a job,
I wouldn't care if we were taunted,
Everytime we drove through the street,
In a car i can barely drive,
In the lowest streets of the lowest town,
In the deepest depths of the deepest dives.
Pull out the sun and reveal yourself,
Lurking behind the lack of light,
Just show me that i'm it for you,
So my love for you can reignite.
