In the shadow of hope begs an unheard plea,
Lost and abandoned, where we used to be.
Please stay, please hear;
Pleasing all for you, as long as you’re near.
But your mind’s gone, you need a new belief,
I can’t help but wait here, I have promises to keep.
Give up, given in;
Give everything I can, until the air runs thin.
Darling, keep yr dreams, find somebody new,
In dark December nights, I’ll embrace the ghost of you.
Love hurts, love always ends;
I sleep unadorned, because you couldn’t pretend.
