Give In

Running, running fast
Trying to make it last
Knowing I won’t get far
How little roads there are

Panting, aching breaths
Only doing my best
My heart you could not keep
The price was far too steep

Spinning, colored lights
The sky, the night, so bright
Falling down again
Watching my thoughts spin

Thinking, awful thoughts
So wrong but just can’t stop
Images burn in my mind
Never turning back time

Breaking, crumbling down
Inside I’m thrown around
Wanting to let go
To not know what I know

Screaming, silent pain
The tears come down like rain
Still there’s no escape
Surrender to my fate

Denial, fading away
Giving into that day
Time to end it all
As I let the last tear fall
