lyrics

Once I was the world to you
Do you remember when I was showing you a river that would never end?
Yet I never said a word to you that would raise me up
And set me on a pedestal

So I gave it all away with all my faith
And everything I gave you were glad to take
Now you keep me hanging on a chain, reaching up
I'm holding on, just reaching, knowing it's been that way
For far too long

The tiny stone that you gave to me,it sparkled red
And I held it in my hand until my fingers bled
From my cage you made me watch
What I could never have
As you gave your love to anyone

But I kept a photograph in a silver frame
So I'd remember all the things that you'd never say
Now the moon is in my veins
And the spider says:
Watch the mirror, time flies
Hope you have sweet dreams
Now
I am gone

I remember everything, all I heard
Every single one of your empty words
I know I promised a perfect love, but please understand
I am only a man

I remember everything, all I heard
Choking on the acid of you're empty words
And now a vision comes to me, to set me free:
On a frozen morning, the day will come when you will reach

But I am gone
