Lyrics

Where are we?
(I'm alone)
I'm in the dark, without you
under a lamp, and feeling dead.
(So alone)

Sat at the window,
as another day does
amble on and by,
and my heart sings
its lamentable cry
to the gwerz of an
anguine bitten mind
that exhumes memories
on which I rely
to stay sane.

(without you, alone)

Without you,
but in solace and pain
My pulse is in a race
to the thought of a time
where we'll renew and embrace,
and trace each others' face
with kisses and subdue
this anathema, nay, this fire
on which I fear bones do burn
and break with every turn of the screw,
by the pyre and moans that peal

(You're going to break)

"You're going to break!
You're going to break
and I'm panicked each day
that I'm in fondness yet
despondent, without you".

(Without you, alone in the dark)
So alone in the dark
(without you, alone in the dark)

alone in the dark,
so alone in the dark.

(Without you, alone in the dark)
So alone in the dark
(without you, alone in the dark)

alone in the dark,
so alone in the dark!
