When I'm Numb.

When I look into your eyes,
My sorrow wrapped around your stone-cold fingers
Searching for an answer when the time has dropped the bomb.
Surrounds me like a blanket in the fall,
I keep wishing for some heartache,
Better than no feelings at all.
Like the sky in December
Take back all the things that I remember.
Lay me down in icy guilt,
And let me cry out all these embers.
Like the rain that falls,
When the battle’s lost and
My spirit calls to you.
Because I can’t seize the day,
Until the dawn.
Oh, Lord, how long?
Will it take you to rescue me?
I can’t stay strong,
When I’m lost without a memory
That fades into your eyes,
Your eyes of gray,
Lost hopes of today,
And bury me
For everything I left behind,
I’ve got nothing left behind.
When I’m numb.
