If you open up your heart, you might find something you didn\'t even know you were looking for.

There was a time
when stories had happy endings.
A great big smile
comes across memories.
And while you wait
for things to change
just like they always do,
your broken heart
is lost in a daze,
and nothing seems to come through.

Don't break me, I'm fading.
Already lost in the crowd.
Please don't blame me for saying,
"I'm so glad your not around."
And then when it hit you
that you were the issue,
you finally try to be found.
Well it's too late now.

I'm waiting, I'm waiting,
I'm waiting for tomorrow.
Your just a stranger
who was taking control of my moment.
And all my life,
you've been living a lie.
But what good will that do?
To my surprise,
I finally got away from you.

These are the lies
you told me, kept feeding.
In my mind,
I start searching for the wrongs things.
And after
I hope it gets better,
I discover
that it's not suppose to be this way.
And all you had to say was:

"Your nothing, no meaing.
I'm just wasting my time.
Just face it, your faceless.
I hope you never get it right."
So now I'm standing here
and its so clear
that your the one with no life.
You've done the crime,
now pay the price.


So close,
and yet so far away
from losing it all.
I had to break,
to see that I was about to fall.
And now I know
that tears aren't worth it,
cause don't deserve them.
Why should I waste my time,
when all you did was lie?

You break me, I'm fading.
I'll leave you in the rain.
You hurt me, I couldn't hurt you
cause I was so afraid.
But now I'm ok.
And i'm not gonna wait.

You will be fading, I won't be waiting,
to see tomorrow.
Your just this stranger
who's afraid of himself.
And all my life,
you had me believing a lie.
But what good did that do?
To your surpise,
I finally got away from you.

The author's comments:
This song is a person from my past.
A shameless man that could've been there and should've been there, but wasn't. It seemed like the only way to keep himself alive, was by hurting the ones that could've love him.
