tonight, tonight
is almost over
tonight, tonight, tonight will never end
that constant pressure
never relenting, everlasting
your words are suffocating me tonight
all i know is i can’t sleep
tossing and turning
and i would do anything, anything
for you
but i don’t know why you
do the things you do
if you take me seriously
then you obviously don’t
know me very well
living on the edge of breaking down
how long can i walk this rope with you?
i lie to myself and to the world
and i can’t bear to take it,
take it anymore
hearts aren’t like rules –
they’re not meant to be broken
i’m freezing, i’m shaking now
i wish tonight would end
because i won’t have courage to face tomorrow
until the sun explodes outside my window pane
as the seconds go by i am getting
angry and weak - two things very new to me
but tonight will never end
it will stow away in the corner of my heart
where all the hurtful things
haunt me tonight
