Today's the day the lightning's striking

Electric around me and I can't see

I turn my head and avert my eyes

Because I don't think, I don't think

I could bear to look into yours

I'm wasting away the night with a game of tag

Rather than look inside, I'm looking around

I'm trying to find something that'll never be…found

The darkness is creeping up on me

The clock is ticking and it's only minutes away

From goodbyes…

Goodbye…

While the room is cold, when you are close

There's a fire erupting from somewhere deep

Inside of me, and I won't lie to you

So please…don't ask

While the darkness is creeping up on me

The clock is ticking and it's only seconds away

From goodbyes…

Goodbye…

I choke my words when I want to speak

I grab at your arm to hold you in-place

I poke at the lion and wait for the wrath

That never comes, because she's gone again…

I wait for the signal and turn out the lights

The darkness is creeping up on me

The clock is ticking the time has passed

But now I'm relieved, because tonight is the night

I'll have you by, my, side
