I don't know how to leave you
And I don't know how to stay
I've got things that I must tell you
That I don't know how to say
The man behind these empty words
Is crying out in shame
Holding on to this sinking ship
When nothing else remains

All I want is everything
Am I asking too much?
All I want is everything
Like the feel of your touch
But all I have are yesterdays
Tomorrow never comes

It's hard to hold your head up
When you're kneeling down to pray
And talking don't come easy now
When the words get in the way
If you could see what's going on
Behind these private eyes
The truth would look so easy now
But I'm running out of lies


You think the shadow of doubt
Is hanging over my head
It's just an angel
Whose wings hide the sun
And it's myself I betray
I cannot wish this away
Took my chance
Now the damage is done
