THE ONLY ONE


THE ONLY ONE

_______________

YOU KNOW YOU ARE

NOT THE ONLY ONE

ONE DAY IT WILL

ALL COME

CRASHING DOWN

AND WE WILL

FADE AWAY

WHERE IS YOUR SOUL

OFF TOO...

LONGING TO FIND

A BACK DOOR

OUT YOUR LIFE

WE ARE ALL

GRIEVING...

LOST AND BLEEDING

OH TO HEAVEN...

IF YOU WANT TO

LIVE

THEN GO

AND LIVE

IF YOU WANT

TO STAY

THEN

STAY

AND LIVE

OH TO THE FREAK

THAT DREAMS

BRING SO MUCH

TO REALITY

AND OH TO THE

SLEEP

THE SLEEP

FOREVER

BLOODY SLEEP

I DON'T WANT

TO TOUCH THIS

AGAIN

I JUST WANT

TO FEEL

OH TO THE HIGH

OF LIVING

AND ...

CAN YOU REFUSE

TO LET ME...

IN

I GUESS THIS

WORLD

IS TOTALLY

STUCK

ON A PRAYER

AFTER ALL

IF I FALL

I FALL

IS IT ALL IN VAIN

IS IT ALL LOST

WHERE IS THAT HOPE

WHERE DO I BELONG

IS IT ALWAYS

TO REMEMBER

AND NEVER BE

OH TO THAT

SWEET

SWEET

SURRENDER

IN THE WAY

OF IT

OH SO ALONE

AND YET

I KNOW

WHERE I BELONG

OH TO THE DREAM

TAKE THIS

AND KNOW

YOU WON'T GIVE

YOUR LOVE

IT WON'T BE

TO A NOW

BROKEN HEART

FOR ALL THIS TIME

IT FINALLY

CAUGHT BACK

UP TO ME

AND SAVED A LIFE

YET CHANGED

FOR ETERNITY

DON'T LOCK ME

UP INSIDE

OH THIS HEART

OF MINE

DON'T WANT

TO FORGET

HOW IT FEELS

OH TO BEING

WITHOUT

I WANT TO STAY

OH TO STAY IN LOVE

AND KEEP

MY SOUL

AND YOU WITH ME

OH BUT MY DEAR

I HEAR GOD'S WORDS

SAYING

I CAN'T HELP YOU

GO BACK

YOU CAN'T STAY

OH I WANT TO

LET IT GO

COME TO THIS BED

DON'T MAKE ME

SLEEP IN IT

ALONE AGAIN

YOU LEFT ME

HERE

AND I LET YOU GO

I LET YOU GO

I COULDN'T HIDE

IT AND I SHOWED

TOO MUCH

AND WOULDN'T LET

IT END

KNOWING

IT WAS LONG

LONG GONE

LONG AGO

BUT THE EMPTINESS

THAT WAS LEFT

I HAD TO SHOW

THAT STILLNESS

HAD A HEART

STILL WORTH

WHILE

STILL BEATING

AND YET

IT WAS TWISTED

AND TAKEN

AND OH TO

THE MOMENT IT

ALL CAME

BACK AROUND

SO COLD

IS IT OUT HERE

IN THE HEAT

OF EACH DAY

BECAUSE NOW

I AM MORE ALONE

THAN EVER

BEFORE

I NEVER WANTED

IT TO BE

SO COLD

AND NEXT TO YOU

IT USED TO BE

OH SO SWEET

AND YET I KNOW

YOU CAN'T

COME BACK

AROUND

SO I CONTINUE

ON

GUESS I DIDN'T

DRINK ENOUGH

TO WASH THIS

AWAY

OH TO THE

WORDS

THAT SAID YOU LOVED ME

AND I LOVED YOU

DREAMS

IN A MOMENT

KNOWING I AM NOT

THE ONLY ONE

I CAN'T HOLD

ONTO THE WONDERING

OF WHAT

IS WRONG WITH THIS

AND YET

WHEN IT HITS

IT TAKES EVERYTHING

IN ME

TO RESIST

AND YOU KNOW

I CAN'T SAY NO

SO WHAT IS

WRONG WITH ME

OH TO A LOVE

THAT CAN NEVER EVER BE

YET IS

OH IT WILL LEAD DOWN

DOWN A PATH

IN TIME

DOWN YET I

WILL FLY

I LINGERED

IN THE DARKNESS

AND HUNG AROUND

SEEKING

THE FLAME

AND THE FLAME

CAME

AND BURNED

AND BURNED

ALL THE WAY

THE WICK WENT

STRAIGHT THROUGH

THE CANDLED HEART

LEAVING

A HOLE

ALL THE WAY

THROUGH

OH TO THE MOMENT

WE BOTH

BROKE FREE

AND YET

WE STILL

HAVE THAT THOUGHT

OH

TO LET IT GO

AND YET ....

DARLING

I FORGIVE YOU

AFTER ALL

ANYTHING WAS

BETTER

ALL THE BEST

OF ME

I GAVE

AND TO THIS

LONELY BED

IN THE END

FOR ALL ETERNITY

I GUESS

I HAD TO FALL

BACK DOWN

AND LET THE

FEATHERS FLOAT

AWAY

CAUSE I CAN'T

JUST FIX IT

ALL BY MYSELF

AND YET

NO ONE

ELSE SEEMS

TO GIVE A DAMN

SO

I COULDN'T

HOLD ONTO ME

I FLOATED IN

THE INSANITY

LIKE THE RIVER

AND FELL

FOR THE IMAGINATED

DREAM

OF A DEEP

CONNECTION

OH THAT LOVE

THAT LOVE WITHIN ME

STILL SCREAMS

OUT TO

BE FREE

AND SHINE SOMEWHERE

ON SOMEONE

KNOWING I AM

NOT THE ONLY ONE

AND YET

AM I GONNA

LET IT GO

YOU LET GO

LONG AGO

WHY CAN'T I

TO THE FREE FALL

OF THE NIGHT

NO MORE

SCREAMS

NO MORE

INSANITY

NO MORE

DEMONS

OR ANGELS

JUST LETTING

IT ALL GO

TO BE ME

FOR A CHANGE

YET WHAT IS HERE

FOR ME

TO HOLD ONTO

TO THE WORDS

SHE MEANS

NOTHING TO ME

HOW COULD

THAT BE

SO TO MY

WEIGHTED HEART

LONG AGO

TO A BELIEVER

OF THINGS BEYOND ME

WILL I GO

BACK INTO THE

DARK AGAIN

WITH ONE WHITE

WING

AND ONE BLACK

WING

ALL TURNED GOLD

THEN FELL AWAY

TO THE

HUMANS

WE ARE

ONLY

HUMANS

THE ONLY ONE
