(Whispered)

"Please don't leave me."

"I'll never leave you."

Verse 1

The alarm clock screams

To tear me out of the world where I seek,

Sweet refuge in dreams.

And somehow my reality seems bleak.

Hey, wait a second, why do

I feel like something's missing?

And then it creeps up on me,

Be careful what you're wishing.

Chorus

Close my eyes tight,

And your image is embedded behind my eyelids.

Stare at the light,

And you seem to be standing right there as my world splits.

There's no escape,

You're everywhere, out there in the woods and deep within.

Sent you to grave,

But you crawled out to satisfy my twisted craving.

Verse 2

You kept your promise,

You're with me, like a shadow that's glued to

My very last piece.

Even in darkness it plays peek-a-boo.

Oh, but I'm getting tired

Of always being followed,

When you never answer me.

My broken heart stays hollow.

Chorus

Close my eyes tight,

And your image is embedded behind my eyelids.

Stare at the light,

And you seem to be standing right there as my world splits.

There's no escape,

You're everywhere, out there in the woods and deep within.

Sent you to grave,

But you crawled out to satisfy my twisted craving.

Bridge

There is no closure,

When it's not over,

When you're making your dark presence felt

And dragging my soul behind the veil.

Chorus

Close my eyes tight,

And your image is embedded behind my eyelids.

Stare at the light,

And you seem to be standing right there as my world splits.

There's no escape,

You're everywhere, out there in the woods and deep within.

Sent you to grave,

But you crawled out to satisfy my twisted craving.

Chorus

Close my eyes tight, (Make it alright)

And your image is embedded behind my eyelids.

Stare at the light, (Make it alright)

And you seem to be standing right there as my world splits.

There's no escape, (Let me be saved)

You're everywhere, out there in the woods and deep within.

Sent you to grave, (Let me be saved)

But you crawled out to satisfy my twisted craving.

(Whispered)

"Please leave me alone."

"I'll never leave you."

"I'll never leave you."

"I'll never leave you."
