lyrics

Fading away without you
I never thought I could carry on
in searching for a way back home
That never was, that never was

I’m sorry it took me so long
It’s only fair that you chose to walk away
I’m sorry I was a damaged son
I lost you all in the wake of those awful days
They say that “love never runs on time”
But I hope you’ll be happy with your hours in the sun
I’m sorry it took me so long
Truth be told I loved you all, all along
I’m sorry it took me so long
Truth be told I miss you, I miss you all

I’m sorry it took me so long
It’s unfair that you came to fade away
I’m sorry I was a damaged son
I lost my voice in the wake of those fateful days
They say “the darkest hour is right before the dawn”
I hope you were happy surrounded by the people you adore
I’m sorry it took me so long
I hope you know I truly loved you, all along
I’m sorry it took me so long
I hope you know I miss you, I miss you so

I’m glad the fire scorched with you
The charcoal on the floors, and the smoke soon follows
The scent of burnt flesh and burnt hearts
a grey sky sets your final flight

I’m glad how the wind still blows
at the sand at my feet while the waves seem to sigh
My pounding heart as we set out to sea
I’ve never been so shaken with grief

I’m glad the water took you in
Swallowing the memories as your ashes sink
Our hearts lay in tatters, tears in our eyes
as your last song gently whispers

I’m glad I came home that day
November 25th, went by for the most of us
A year on by and I’m still so so so sorry
I’m sorry I never said that I love you, I love you so

Forever escaping
Memories in transient
Our bodies lay hostage
In the melody of love
Forever undone
Memories in eclipse
Our bodies lay broken
In the melody of loss
In the melody of hope

Step by step, I’ll find my way back to you
Then step by step I’ll lose myself in you again
