When love fades
Was it truly ever there?
Withered like my soul that day
When all color seemed to fade away
Crestfallen, standing in my loneliness
When will the echo fade..

Pale eyes
I wander without a soul
Standing in your ashes
Oceans blue no more

Never saw the morning rise
You were nothing but lies
A cunning disguise
I saw nothing in your eyes

As sorrow escaped from my lips
Her silent ghost did vanish
And I saw only her fading footprints
In the falling snow

Another night has befallen us
You lay awake in the night
A voice is heard in the absence of light
Persuading you to go

Thrice have you left into the dark
Ever wandering through the halls
The curtain of night would not rise
The veil of darkness unbound

This is the reason I turned my eye
You never saw the morning rise
The night was all you ever knew
And death was the voice that was calling for you
