I'm tired, I'm weak, I'm sick

You're happy, you're strong, you're healthy

My world is dark, yours is bright

You say I simply need to see the light

Yours may be shining

But mine is dim

Flickering, flickering

I've given in

My candle is small, almost finished

The hope in my chest, it has diminished

You say I mean something to someone

But tell, whose heart have I won?

Who cares to see that I awake in the morning?

If I end my life, who will be mourning?

"You need to cheer up," was your claim

"But why?" I ask, "what can I gain?"

"The happiness, find something to look forward to."

"Would you be trying if you've been what I've been through?"

You have nothing else to say but, "just have fun"

My battle with the darkness, it has won

You say I simply need to see the light

Yours may be shining

But mine is dim

Flickering, flickering

I've given in

In the end, the darkness will win
