Darkness fills my head;
Begging and praying for light to shed.
Broken and wounded feeling much pain;
Screaming within and feeling ashamed
Breathless and suffocating for so long;
Mistaken my true love had come along
No hope in sight for you to stay;
Longing and hoping you will return one day
If only you could see through my shattered past;
Your love gave me breath and light was cast
Broken many times and put back together;
My heart is weary and completely weathered
Trying so hard to tear down these walls;
Let go of the past and just free fall
Fall into you without hesitation;
Finally leave behind all my complications
You are my love, my everything and more;
My wish is for me to one day be yours.
