lyrics

Look into these lonely eyes,
See what I have seen,
The visions of happiness
The things that used to be
The dreams that were so true
The dreams that torture me
Can’t you see…

Feel this lonely heart
See what I used to be
A man so strong so bold
Like a knight in chivalry
But then you left me
For your selfish desires
Oh, so cold
I feel the pain in my heart

So alone here I stand
To fight a war that I can’t win
Why did you leave me
Why did you go?

Now I’ve lost all my dreams
Emptiness has swallowed me
I don’t want to go on
But my pride tortures me
And I know the truth
I see your misery
It helps comfort me

And alone here I stand
To fight a war that I can’t win
Why did you leave me
Why did you go….

So, yes there is true love,
A trust that burns deep
It’ll never let you go
No matter who you see
That is why I watch and grin
Let the pain soak on in
Sickenly Oh. God forgive me…

I know I should see the light
I know that I’m a good man
The strength that’s in my heart
To steady my shaky hands
To live another day
To learn how to play again
It’s not a sin
Oh, Lord it’s not a sin!
