Calloused words, a deafened ear,
A broken soul, a crippled heart,
Blind eyes, an empty mind…
These things I carry with me
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
But there's none of that for me…
Just a jaded loneliness that suffocates me
In my dreams and all my days.
