I Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level
1. Scarred for Life (3:58)
I'm feeling so empty inside
When the fragments of pain return from the back of my mind
Of all of the lies I've been told "We love you" must be the worst

I couldn't find any reason to stay
My life is too precious to sacrifice
The darkest of shadows follow my soul
Tonight I will join all lost ones on the run

I have to run away

I'm all alone in this world
When the memories arise and punch a new hole in my soul
I'm hiding my head in my hands for the fragments to disappear

I wait for the nightfall, eager to leave
I whisper goodbye to the house of fear
Watching my sister cry in her sleep
One day she will understand

I know I'm scarred for life
all messed up with no place to go
I'm out here all alone
Lonelier than the streets I wander
I'll always have these scars inside

I'm scarred for life

I'm lost in the cold of the night
Looking for shelter until the dawn turns to day
I'm holding my hands to my head
For the silence to reappear

The fragments and places remembered with fear
Never to leave, just fade away
I'll carry them with me forever and a day
Just like a nail in my heart
2. Still in the Dark (3:12)
So lonely - feeling so alone in the dark
The world is really fierce out here
I'm so alone and scared
I'm tired and the cold is getting to my bones
Everything is so unreal, fighting on my own
My heart is pounding fast

So lonely - thinking of the end I'm soon to see
Keeping all my tears inside leaving all the world behind

I don't know where to run
Oh, I don't know where to go from here
I don't know right from wrong
I just have to carry on

Awakened by a stranger looking down at me
Another soul on the run
Telling me his heart is glad to find me
Together we will try to make it out alive
I see the horror in his eyes, his story isn't far from mine

We don't know where to run
Oh, we don't know where to go from here
We don't know right from wrong
We just have to carry on
We don't know where to run
Oh, we don't know where to go from here
The dreams we have inside will come true and we will be reborn tonight

I've found a friend
Someone that is sharing my pain
Now I know that there is something good in all this darkness

We are throwing all our fears into the fire
Life for us has only just begun
3. The Game (4:29)
The two of us, so young and so wild
We can't find the cure to what has led us astray
Far apart from what we once were
and we both made a choice there's no turning back from here
There's no turning back from here

But we have no aim, just keeping up the pace
Who's the best of us, who's the stronger one
Will it ever end?
This escalating game

We're reborn to live on the edge
Who's the bravest of us?
Who will live to tell?
I'm so scared of what we've become
As we double the bets, the proportions exceed ourselves
The proportions exceed our sanity

We have gone from meek to brave
And we're chasing a dream that never will come true
Letting go of all our fears
The unavoidable end is the enemy we defy

But we have no aim, just keeping up the pace
Who's the best of us, who's the stronger one
Will it ever end?
This escalating game
There can be only one
4. Game Over (3:06)
The rain is cold as ice today
The day I never wanted to come
We have come to the final round
We have reached the point of no return

I can see that you're afraid, but there is no way out
You are the one to show the way

This is the final dare
I know this could be your last day
I place the rope around your neck
I can see the anguish in your eyes

No! My breath is swept away by the sight I see
I cannot move, I cannot scream Oh, No!

He chokes for breath in vain
I fail to cut the rope in time
The game is over now
His broken soul is lost for evermore

I feel his soul far away
A part of me has died
I wonder who's to show the way
He left this world behind
I feel his soul far away
A part of me has died
I wonder who's to show the way
5. Remorse and Regret (5:02)
My heart is in pain
Surrounded by emptiness
How could I do this to my only friend?

The memories of joy vanished without a trace
Wandering aimlessly
Empty inside

I know I'll never be, be myself again
Death and despair is forever to dwell in my soul
It's never to leave me, no

I feel so alone
Guilt is written all over me
I'm losing myself in this maze of remorse

Please wake me up from the nightmare that's haunting me
I only see darkness wherever I turn

I know he'll never be, be alive again
Death and despair is forever to rhyme with my name
I can't stand the pain any longer

Lonely
Losing time and space
I am reborn in remorse and regret
Oh, no sight of light inside
The darkness is all around

I'm calling your name
I wish you could see me now
But only my echo is with me tonight

You know I would trade my life for your return
But you'll never hear this promise I make

I know I'll never be, be myself again
And the tears that I cry is the lifeblood I stole from your eyes
I can't stand the pain any longer

Lonely
Losing time and space
My soul is reborn in remorse and regret
Oh, no sight of light inside
The darkness is all around

My world is insane
I surrender to silence
But will I be able to bury the truth?
6. Alonely (4:15)
I'm all alone
Waiting for no one
I see the daylight fade away

I'm so afraid
I know you're around me
I hear you crying in the wind

If I could bring you back
If I had the power, I'd give you my world
And my life, you'd have it all
But life is not a game
And I know the rules and I know I must follow
them every single day

I feel that I'm loosing it all
There's nothing left to live for
I'm ending it all in my dreams
It always seems so easy in my sleep

I'm all alone
Waiting for darkness
I wish the sun would slip away

I still believe that you didn't leave me
I see your shadow in the haze

If I could have some peace
Ending the nightmare, closing the chapter
And join you in your sleep
But life is not a game
And I know the rules and I know I must follow
them every single day

I feel that I'm loosing it all
There's nothing left to live for
I'm ending it all in my dreams
And deep inside I knew

That there was one part of me
That tried to save you from yourself
The other let you go and I will
Never deny I was walking on the line of
Here and nevermore in selfish pride
7. I Return (4:03)
Day and night just come and go
I hate that life is so deceiving
I feel this urge to turn away
From all the sadness and grieving

I find my way back to the place where we parted
All I hear is my heart pounding inside
I'm so afraid of what I'll see when I return
There's a part of me that needs to say goodbye
Until we meet again

Now and then he reappears
In my dreams
In my illusions
Pointing out the chosen path
It feels so real
Am I really dreaming?

Soon I'll see what time has done to my creation
Hell on Earth is just a few steps away
The Sun is hiding
I am in the heart of darkness
I'm closing in on the godforsaken tree

The moment I defy the pain
Is here again, in another way
All the fear in my life
Is erased from my soul
I never knew that my fantasies
Could be oh so close to reality
And what I see here right now
Is so hard to believe

I see the rope, my friend is gone
His body's nowhere to be found
I hear him whisper in the wind
I hear him calling out my name
Am I going insane?

The moment I defy the fear
Is here again, I can feel he's near
All the fear in my life
Have returned to my soul
I never knew that my fantasies
Could be oh so close to reality
And what I'm hearing right now
Is so hard to believe
8. Drowning in Sadness (3:32)
Darkness all around me, I believe
That we will be together once again
The time has come to leave this dreadful place
I think I've found a way out of this maze

Tonight the moon will shine upon my grave
God has failed. Here's one he cannot save

My life is over, I just can't go on
Nowhere to run, I'm turning black inside
I hope to meet him in the other sky
I've realized I'm only born to die

I close my eyes and ask myself again
Is there really nothing left to do?
The silence in my heart just prove me right
Soon my journey will begin towards eternal night

I'm breathing water, death is closing in
It's cold and dark but I am not afraid
I'm out of breath. There's no way out of here
This is the end of all the pain and fear
9. Dead or Alive (3:27)
I lie here by the lakeside
I am still alive somehow
It's all too strange for me to understand

How could someone see me
In the darkness of the night?
How could someone bring me back to life?

Is there another world?
Dead or alive?
Oh, life is haunting me

I can't describe the feeling
Could it all just be a dream?
I'm still wet and the memories remain

I rise and try to make my way back to the normal world
I'v realized that life has to go on

It's so hard to decide
Dead or alive
Now fear will carry me, back to the world

Another day is dawning
Now my journey will begin
Destined to return to normal life

It feels like I've been out here
For eternity and more
I've lost all sense of time
But I'll be strong

It's so hard to decide
Dead or alive
Oh, my past is haunting me
10. The Journey's End (5:23)
My heart never wanted to leave
The silence was gold for my soul
But I am heading back home, I return
To the world that I decide to leave

My life is a waste of time
I wish I could end it
But something won't let me go

I'm back, everything looks the same
All these people but I still alone
I'm soon to arrive at the place where my fear was born
Torn, torn apart
The scars are still bleeding inside
I'll never forgive you
One part of me always cry
And it's crying 'cause of you

So long ago
I gave you my heart, it was...
So long ago
I gave you my soul, it was...
So long ago
But you gave me hell in return

You made what I am here today
All the sadness you brought to my soul
Is something I'll never find ways to defy
If you could see me what you've done to me now
Maybe you would understand
The love you never gave me
Would have made me much stronger inside
But it is too late to change

So long ago
I gave you my heart
So long ago
And I gave you my soul
So long ago
And I gave you, I gave you my heart
So long ago
But you gave me hell in return

I'm back where the darkness began
All is empty, not a soul around
Where are you now?
Where did all of you go?
Nothing is left
Nothing is left from before
It seems like a lifetime has passed here
While I was gone
