Summary

So alone I'm turning to stone The blood in my veins Just spilled on the ground And no one's around But pain I caused For us both It's a demon whose face Has already shown I thought being grown Meant making mistakes But taking the blame And erasing the pain And when that seed's sown Knowing that all that's known Is a lesson to learn About how not to be And what from yourself Never again to condone

Summary

So alone
I'm turning to stone
The blood in my veins
Just spilled on the ground
And no one's around
But pain I caused
For us both
It's a demon whose face
Has already shown

I thought being grown
Meant making mistakes
But taking the blame
And erasing the pain
And when that seed's sown
Knowing that all that's known
Is a lesson to learn
About how not to be
And what from yourself
Never again to condone

I have nowhere to go

No place to be

The only home that I know

Is an empty place

Of Misery

 

The one that I lost

Was the best one for me

I let her leave

Because of my jealousy

 

I just could not compete

If that was reality

Why would she want me

If she could have

Someone who wouldn't

Melt from the heat

 

So alone

I'm turning to stone

The blood in my veins

Just spilled on the ground

And no one's around

But pain I caused

For us both

It's a demon whose face

Has already shown

 

I thought being grown

Meant making mistakes

But taking the blame

And erasing the pain

And when that seed's sown

Knowing that all that's known

Is a lesson to learn

About how not to be

And what from yourself

Never again to condone

 

But a lesson that's learned

Can come with a loss

The prize you hold onto

Slips out of your hands because the cost

Is more than you feel you can pay

But at the end of the day

The regret you let creep in your way

Is that you've let someone else become burned

 

So alone

I'm turning to stone

The blood in my veins

Just spilled on the ground

And no one's around

But pain I caused

For us both

It's a demon whose face

Has already shown

On the road to the unknown

 

This scar I'll have on my hand

Isn't half as hard as the one I'm bearing inside

From messing up the greatest thing

I ever tried

What maybe just could've been

Is going to be a thought that

Comes with the memory

Of the way this all had to end

And the lie that I will pretend

Doesn't get me down

And make me drown in my sin

 

So alone, more broken and frozen,

I'm turning to stone

The blood in my veins

Just spilled on the ground

Spots and drops of red

Staining as it surrounds

And no one's around

But pain I caused

For us both

It's a demon whose face

Has already shown

 

And I know I'm at fault

For being again alone

I can't get how

What was maybe almost love

Was at best just a loan

Recalled and repossessed and cutting

Straight to the bone

And when both wounds heal

I won't have her hand to hold

Because I am again alone
