lyrics

It was a moment of magic in a cold world
The burning trees was the only source of light
I was falling and I thought you fell beside me
But it was all a dream and I had to wake up

I am returning to the black fall
I have been here so many times before
I am too far down to touch the sky
And I need a way out of myself

I came crashing down hard on the pavement
Now I am lying here in my blood, with my feelings on display
In the distance the sirens sings and your shape disappears
Now comes these crawling and loathsome hours

The screen flickers for tired eyes
Thoughts echoes in empty rooms
I never want to feel again
Can I carve out my heart and survive?

I am returning to the black fall
I have been here so many times before
I am too far down to touch the sky
I will never reach the light alive
I am returning to the black fall
I have been here so many times before
I am too far down to touch the sky
And I need a way out of myself
