i flick past the pages of my old life
how did we get here tonight
the silence is astounding
my chest compounding
i feel a steel vice compress the moment and stretch time
my eyes slow everything down
i can see light move
and i can taste sound
i hear the lonely ache of the dust drift
and with every breath and fall of my soul, the blankets lift

don't let me go
don't let me go

the scratching pen constantly alerting me
and my heart to the false alarm of footsteps in the hall
she isn't coming at all
oh will i ever know what it feels like to be safe
or is safety a type of empty only promises make
you were so strong in your heart
and your arms arms could reach where i roamed
you held me as your own
you were so strong in your mind
without a shadow of doubt
please please please don't fail me now

don't let me go
don't let me go

seven years eleven nights
i feel the same way as i do tonight
worry worry worry on my mind
trouble trouble trouble this time
