Grudges she held


Little by little


As time disappears


You start to get scared


Of your own shadows




Your muscles start to twitch


Your heart gets cold


Your skin is too frail


You slowly start to forget




Feelings start to fade away


All that is left within


Are tired excuses


Empty promises




Pain makes its way


It becomes hard for you to say


Yes, I still Love you


No, I don't Love you




You'll never be the same


Slowly losing this game


Still, the pulse survives


So you gather yourself up


One last time




Strips of colorful life


You so quickly hide


With a delightful sigh


Things that you held up high


Lost in this glorious fight
