Apparition

You hold me close
(So close)
And tell me you love me.
I dreamed of you
(So long ago)
How is it you found me?
I was bleeding inside
(Screaming inside)
For someone to love me too.
And I found you.

But you won't stay,
Could never promise forever.
You love me, wish you could
But your face just fades away.

You walk with me
(Hold my hand)
And tell me it's all okay.
You're here now
(No more pain)
You brush the clouds away.
I dreamed of you
(So long ago)
How is it you found me?
The tears, they've drowned me.

I know you won't stay
Could never promise forever.
You love me, wish you could
But your face just fades away.
You just fade away.

Hiding in my place again
(Alone, so dark)
Wishing the world would disappear
But you showed up
(You found me here)
And kissed away the tears.
I was bleeding inside
(Torn. . .dying)
For someone to love me too.
And I found you.

But there's nothing you can say,
Nothing can be done
To save this heart.
I wait for night to come
I see you then,
Your beautiful face,
I long for you to stay.

But you won't stay
Could never promise forever.
You love me, wish you could
But your face just fades away.
You just fade away.

My apparition.

Your face just fades away.
