7. Like a Flower in the Desert (7:19)
Like a flower in the desert,
yearning for a drop of rain
Lost and so lonely,
I cannot share the pain
When no-one's there to hear me cry,
no-one's there to see my tears
No-one else is left behind
Why can't I just disappear?

There is all this space
but no room for me
I feel so out of place
I cry in disbelief
it hurts to be alone
It all makes no sense to me
All I want, all I want is to leave

Like a snowflake in summer,
I vanish into thin air
Lost and so lonely,
it all seems so unfair
There's no-one to talk to,
no-one I can hear
There are no thoughts to be shared
Please make me disappear

Like an ocean without water
Like a forest without trees
Life without a beating heart
A lock without the keys
Like mourning without grief
Truth without lies
Like faith without a God
Like seeing without eyes
I am defeated, ripped and torn
I wish I was never born
