My dreams affect my thoughts,
My sanity affects my life,
There's so much to erase,
But it builds on top of me,
Until it finally corrupts,
Shadows me,
Hurts me,
Slowly kills me,
But still I hold your hand,
I still kiss your lips,

But inside my mind,
I walk away,
Hold onto the thought,
I've had for so long,
Forever I dismay,
This nightmare so real,
I wipe away your tears,
And let mine fall,
I close my eyes,
Shut off my thoughts,
Hold your hand,
Kiss your lips,
And let my mind go.
