lyrics

are you there, my love?
can you hear my cries?
tell me what you see
through your lifeless eyes

will you ever know
how i've suffered so?
hold me tenderly
rid me of my woe

i can see you now
and what you've become
all the wickedness
to which you've succumbed

there was once a time
when you held me close
whispered quietly
all your loving prose

but if i've lost respect for my perception
what else can i trust?
and i admit i've jumped to the conclusion
that my world is false

darling, your denial only clouds the truth
but i feel soulless and empty
when do morbid thoughts make you so aloof?
when my senses overwhelm me
won't you think of me when you lose faith in living?
oh, i do

and when you spoke to me
i could feel your breath against my ear
and im haunted every night
by the final words you made me hear

so if this is life
what's there left to live?
how can i go on
with no love to give?

don't you feel regret
what we had was real
don't let loveless fools
tell you how to feel

so when we shared warmth
and i let you in
did you truly care?
with everything within

but now that we've sinned
what am i to do?
please remember me
as i remember you

but if i've lost respect for my perception
what else can i trust?
and i admit i've jumped to the conclusion
that my world is false

darling, your denial only clouds the truth
but i feel soulless and empty
when do morbid thoughts make you so aloof?
when my senses overwhelm me
won't you think of me when you lose faith in living?
oh, i do

and when you spoke to me
i could feel your breath against my ear
and im haunted every night
by the final words you made me hear

though the years have tried
your sensitivity
don't abandon faith
in human empathy

has it been that long?
i can barely see
distant memories
they're escaping me

i had hoped by now
you would realize
that my final words
were meant to sympathize

yes, i understand
but i never knew
that you needed me
and i needed you

and when you spoke to me
i could feel your breath against my ear
and im haunted every night
by the final words you made me hear
