Already Gone

You tiptoe through these halls as if I didn't know
I feel your very presence, and I feel it when you go
You have to understand that I'm just too far gone
To be able to travel back to where I came from, with you
You lead me here and like a broken child I had followed
I had believed, I had hoped, and I had cherished
You whisper that life goes on without you
You whisper that my heart still beats but that's not true
I hurt and I keep hurting
I bleed and I'll keep bleeding
Because even when you're here you're far from me
You extend your hand out towards me
Thinking I can take hold of it now
But I can't come to find the strength to lift it
This heavy hand of mine
And I can't find the words to scream to you
I can't find the exit now, I'm just too far gone
One day someone will see the pages torn from my book
They'll read the words that I have chosen
The careful little truths that I've decided to show
They'll see then that my heart wasn't always in pieces
It was once whole, beating, happy, alive.
But now I'm frozen from the inside.
Frozen and without breath.
I'm screaming: Save me, save me, save me.
But I'm already gone.
