In the Dark

July 17, 1993

First, you took my time
Then you took my heart
I found myself standing in line
Waiting for the healing with time

You told me little lies
Then said your sweet good-byes
I never knew you took it all
Until I heard my own heart fall

Now I stand alone here
Shivering from coldness and fear
Empty and lost in the world you made
The warmth of you nowhere near

Now I hear myself repeating your lies
Before I bid my own good-byes
Creating another lonely soul
Listening in the night to their cries

The tears slip silently down
As I repeat ‘what comes around goes around’
Hurting others from the pain caused by you
To an endless past, I feel bound.
