Track Name: Absence
Recall back to the day,
the same day that you walked away,
turned your back and left me here,
left without a fucking trace,
mark these words that I speak to you,
leaving killed my faith in you,
I still wonder if you sleep,
knowing what you put me through.

Holding onto what's left of you,
Unable to let go of the old you.

I'll do my best, to bury what you meant to me.

I've done my time,
Trying to, forget you and it's taken its toll on me,
I know i'm not perfect, but at least I was always there for you,
let those around you down, and now you watch, so far removed you can barely hear a sound,
a true reflection on what I think of you now.

So dark are these skies, I'll still walk head held high,
You're more alone than I, so here's to you giving up.

All the things I wish I could have said,
tell you what I truly think,
still I know it won't change,
a fucking thing.

An absence within,
I'll paint a picture of happier days just too get me by,
I'll live to prove that I'm stronger after what you put me through,
I thought I knew you.
