They turn their heads
Pretend nothings wrong
How could they say forget it
How am I to forget?
Its the night I fought for the right to live

now when I say his name they turn away
Don't tell me i'm alright
Look into my eyes
Don't you see the missing light
Look at me
A child's laughter you no longer see
Theres something more and i'm here to open that door
You weren't there
I died
I cried
I said his name each and every night
He gave me light that light gave me life

My will power saved me but living killed me
I try hard not to cry
