lyrics

The lights go out I close my eyes
We start to fall, I realize
The night it stings, we gasp for air
No use to scream if I’m not scared

But I’m so tired of waiting
To stop this shaking
The bow is breaking from the strain
To tell my tale is to pretend
For I’m the only
One who knows the end

Why is this happening?
Is this real or is it dream?
A flash of light is all I see
Through the clouds of memories

And I’m so tired of waiting
To end this shaking
The bow is breaking from the strain
To tell my tale is to pretend
For I’m the only
One who knows the end

Hold on, why, I don’t know?
It’s no remedy for what’s below
In this seat is where I’ll die
And when I’m gone, please don’t cry

And I’m so tired of bracing
For what awaits me
The ground is racing up to me
To tell my tale is to pretend
For I’m the only
One who knows the end
