There was never anyone in here to begin with
What are you staring at but your own shadow?
It won’t start talking to you now
You will still be alone in the morning.
The Sun cannot be bought,
but it will always be within your reach.
You killed me without looking
But I accepted this fate
When you forgot my name
I was already a corpse in your memory.
All of it comes free.
Salt my wounds with anonymous tears
Maybe there will be a personal grief
Underneath this public comedy
For now the clock ever marks midnight
And all the saints are dead.
Tell the stars to hold me a place
I’m just here breathing the night
Smoke billows from my eyes
Watching the everyday rise
An ageless tune is playing somewhere
In the distant past of a feeling I forgot
Humming it I ring up these ghosts of mine
I’ll share a smile with them
The past is now and the present absent
It won’t matter at the crack of dawn
As with the smoke and my ghosts
I too will be gone.
We only had loneliness to ourselves
Now we can’t go back to how it was
I’m here wondering if any piece ever fit
While the rest of the World falls apart.
