lyrics

this has got to be the darkest of days
you think you’ve found your light but she hides her face
and then you know you were wrong all along

i’m gasping for air to breathe
there’s nothing left for me to bleed
broken, lost and helpless
and you’re gone

because i’m so empty right now i could be filled by a gust of wind
and when i finally open my mouth, you’ll be blown away by the contents
i’m sorry i have nothing to say, too much going on for me to concentrate on just one
of this whirlwind of emotions

it’s a storm, it’s a storm inside my head
when i wake up tomorrow i’ll be wishing i was dead
but i’ll keep pushing through this unholy tempest
because i managed without you and i can do it again

i have got to be losing my mind
after all that you’ve done i can’t leave you behind
the splinters you stuck in my heart were strong

can i rip it out of my chest?
a lifesaving muscle seems useless when it’s the only thing stopping me from moving on

because i’m so empty right now i could be filled by a gust of wind
and when i finally open my mouth, you’ll be blown away by the contents
i’m sorry i have nothing to say, too much going on for me to concentrate on just one
of this whirlwind of emotions

it’s a storm, it’s a storm inside my head
when i wake up tomorrow i’ll be wishing i was dead
but i’ll keep pushing through this unholy tempest
because i managed without you and i can do it again

there’s gonna be some sunshine
the clouds will clear if i open my eyes
there’s gonna be another source of light
maybe this time it’ll come from inside

because i’m so empty right now i could be filled with all the sun
and when i finally open my mouth you’ll see what you gave up on
i’m sorry that you couldn’t see all the light i had inside of me
but it’s not my fault that you gave up on me
yeah it’s not my fault that you didn’t want to see
