Burned Out Lights

Verse1:
I can’t take this the separation
Were facing
I’m steadily pacing
Staring at the faces
Staring from the picture on the walls
I wonder what happened to that all
I thought we were still climbing
Or is this the peak of the fall
i know you still call
And I still walk the chalk
But what does it matter
When the one for you care
Can’t even see your signal flares

Chorus:
I know that you care
And you know ill always protect you
From which you are scared
But miles seem to not have emotions
Cause all these roads signs
Are covered with closed signs

Veres2:
Is this what growing apart feels like?
Sorry for being so direct
I’m just so fearful of this
The loves not gone
But your touché is
But with our luck could we expect much less
You see I’ve been trying to be poetic
But can’t find words
But to say I sleep in an empty bed
And it hurts to admit
But I think were approaching the end


Chorus:
I know that you care
And you know ill always protect you
From which you are scared
But miles seem to not have emotions
Cause all these roads signs
Are covered with closed signs


Verse3end:
I’m afraid of the words that follow this
Because I don’t want it to be the end
We worked so hard on this
And I don’t think I can just give in
If you’re willing
I’m willing
To fight till there’s nothing but burned out lights

I really loved this, a couple parts sounded rough. But, seriously, this was really good. I love the way it sounded, I could almost hear this being sung in my head. The words fit, it's easy for someone to connect to. It's pure. Keep writing
