didn't think you would know
when I saw you yesterday
how it was just to see your face
still so far away
thought you'd come back home
after another holiday
but I guess it just doesn't work
that way.

I know you don't like it when I call so late
but I can't help it, it's just my way
of telling you I can't lift my head
anymore, and I can't do this anymore
because nothing is working anymore
and there's no use in fighting
when I've got nothing to fight for
so won't you give me a reason
to get up off the floor?

I know it's been a long time
since we spoke of the world
and how crazy we all are
and I know it's been a long time
since we knew the right thing to say
to make everything else fade away
I can sleep away the day
but without you, it's the night
I can't keep at bay.
