I’m Fading Away

I open my eyes to try to see, but I’m blinded by the light. I can’t remember how? I can’t remember why? I’m laying here tonight; I’m standing by the pain I have. I want it to go away!

 

I can’t stand this pain. How could this happen to me? I’ve made mistakes that I can’t run from. The night goes on.

 

I’m fading away, I am sick of my life, I want to scream! Everyone is screaming, I’m trying to make a sound, but nobody hears me.

 

I’m fading away from my pain that I have deep down inside me. I’m fading away, nobody knows, nobody seems to care. I’m fading away.

 

I’m slipping on the edge; I am hanging by thread! I want to start over again. So, I am to hold on to a time when nothing matters. I can’t explain what happened. I can’t explain the things I have done.

 

I can’t erase the things I have done. No, I can't, I just want to scream! I can’t go anywhere to run. The night goes on. I’m fading away.

 

I’m fading away, from my pain deep down inside me. I’m fading away, nobody knows, nobody seems to care. I’m fading away.
