A/N: If during this song you notice the first two verses are much, much better than the bridge, it's because when I was writing this song, feeling the emotion and pain flooding through me, I was interrupted and couldn't come back to it until my feelings were somewhat dulled…so, forgive me. It truly could have been a really good song. But, you still might like it anyway, so don't let me derail you…just remember to review….

V1:

Crimson raindrops fall from my skin

Cloudburst from all the pain I hold within

You scream in horror as you realize you're too late

Self-defiance has become my gruesome fate

C:

And I blame this all on you

There was so much you could do

To help me, but you just ran away

I see you crying, but I can't stay

You said you'd always be by my side

I thought that meant forever

But the oath you took

Was to protect and sever

V2:

Once my eyes held a shimmering light

Now they're dimming, losing sight

You scream in anguish as you see your mistake

Perhaps someday you'll meet a similar fate

C:

And I blame this all on you

There was so much you could do

To help me, but you just ran away

I see you crying, but I can't stay

You said you'd always be on my side

I thought always meant forever

But I guess the oath you to

Was to protect and sever

B:

You stand in silence as I'm lowered into my grave

The lid closed so tight, I'm too far gone for you to save

And a tear drops, then you smile, the pain is taking over you

Your oath has been fulfilled, no more duties for you to tend to

Now the day is done, you're lying alone in your bed

While images of me smiling and bleeding are flashing through your head

So you storm around your room, looking for something, not sure of what you'll find

A picture of you and me

Sleeping pills to help you dream

And as the world fades, with your one last breath, you say

"sorry friend, I'll protect you better next time"

Final C:

Everyone blames this all on you

There was always so much you could do

To help both of us, but you just ran away

Now you're dying too, neither one of us could stay

You said you'd always be by my side

And I realize that always means forever

Because the oath you took, for you, for me,

Was to protect and sever
