lyrics

I can see the desperation in your eyes
No means to forgive, no will to forget
And the only thing you have left to hold
Is that empty bottle and your half full glass
You've burned every bridge you've walked
Sunk every ship
But still you wonder how you ended up like this
Sinking slowly in a sea of regret.

Stagnant, frozen in fear of what is coming next
Shallow breath, helplessness
Scared to death.

He was a man with a heart of gold
It's hard to see him go like this
He suffered for far too long
But rest assured he left in peace and quiet.

I can't hold it in
I can't choke it back
I tried to bury it deep inside my chest.

I can't hold it in
I can't choke it back
But in a way that poor old man was me
And this is just a flash back.

Leave now, but don't go to far now, don't go too far away
Find rest.
You took a piece of me and I can't get it back
You fought so long, you're time has come.
Let the wind take you now.
Take me with you.

I can't hold it in
I can't choke it back
I can never forget.

I could see the desperation in your eyes
No means to forgive, no will to forget
And the only thing you have left to hold
Is that empty bottle and your half full glass
You've burned every bridge you've walked
Sunk every ship
But still you wonder how you ended up like this
Sinking slowly in a sea of regret.

Stagnant, frozen in fear of what is coming next
Shallow breath, helplessness
Scared to death.

They say the last ten seconds of life
Are the best or the worst you'll have
Breathe, let your heart beat
While it still can.
