Hungry Lights
You’re On Your Own
This night crawled and slipped beneath a darkened sky
The wholesome wall between what's real to you
And what had set the trap
O' all in all... I can't deny, I hate this love
I hate the person you've become
I've tried to let this go, but always find myself still holding on
You won't fade away—just takes too long

You know, I tried to make you hear me
-Reached out hands you could not feel
You fell behind too far to help
And made more wounds that would not heal
I tried to mend, I tried to break that wall of stone that you created
-Now I'm tired
But you closed your weary eyes and went to sleep
And that's okay, I'll stay awake

Then I found that you never could stand me
All in all, I tried my best
It's on you, no you're never gonna' stain my hands
I'm over and through here with your games
You're on your own

I won't tell you how it needs to change
You just keep running from reality
I'm used to lies and used to rain
You breathe the fire to dull the pain
Inside yourself there's a hurricane brewing
I feel the breeze, but you can't tell
I watched you cry and run for shelter
You're spiraling out and away and away

Then I found that you never could stand me
All in all, I tried my best
It's on you, no you're never gonna' stain my hands
I'm over and through here with your games

I can't take this
You embraced your path but could not walk alone
Now all I ever feared has made its home
You surround me, I am down here too
Are you happy?
We can finally waste our lives away
Have you nothing left to say?
Is this not what you want—what you wanted?

Then I found that you never could stand me
All in all, I tried my best
It's on you, no you're never gonna' stain my hands
I'm over and through here with your games
You're on your own
