You(not a copy of Switchfoot)

Im fighting for a freedom that i cant find
Im searching for a soul that i cant see
But im finally seeing
Whats inside of me

Theres a darkness in my heart
A void in my mind
Its been there since you left
Its what you left behind

But im not gonna back down right now, No
Im not gonna give up on myself, no
Till i know where it all went to
And why the only thing on my mind is you

When standing in the courtyard
And you showed me your love
Why cant everyday be like that
Why do i have to hurt

Theres a darkness in my heart
A void in my mind
Its been there for a while
Its what you left behind

But im not gonna back down right now, No
Im not gonna give up on myself, no
Till i know where it all went to
And why the only thing on my mind is you

So i lie awake everynight
Thinking your are by my side
I wish someone would just pinch me
And tell me that your not here

And you never will be anymore!

Theres a darkness in my heart
A void in my mind
Its been there for a while
Its what you left behind

But im not gonna back down right now, No
Im not gonna give up on myself, no
Till i know where it all went to
And why the only thing on my mind is you! You! You!

Ohh dont worry it's been a while since i wrote this one and all that happened. Im not one to stay down for a while. We were given a life to live it, not to stay depressed all the time
