Calloused words, a deafened ear,

Calloused words, a deafened ear,

A broken soul, a crippled heart,

Blind eyes, an empty mind…

These things I carry with me

Everywhere…

Long ago I forgot I could feel,

Long ago I forgot I could love,

Long ago I forgot I could breathe,

Long ago I forgot I could speak,

Long ago I forgot I could see,

Long ago I forgot I could think,

Without you and I don't believe

Myself capable of learning again.

Is there really me without you?

It feels so cold in this empty heart.

I've seen love on the faces of others,

Seen them holding hands, laughing,

I've seen the flashes of passion on

Each face, I've seen the well spring

Of joy in their hearts when they held

Each other.

But there's none of that for me…

Just a jaded loneliness that suffocates me

In my dreams and all my days.
