We hide behind curtains
To protect ourselves from the world
Because we all know nothing is for sure
No one wants to get hurt
We hide behind empty promises
To shield ourselves from the truth
We all know what we want
But too scared to follow through

So if this is the end
And no one’s left here
Can we just go back
To when hope was all we could hear?

I’m sick of all these feelings
Because they never leave us alone
These wounds will never heal
If they scar to the bone
I’ve been touched by a dark angel
Whose wings are closed tight
She might seem beautiful
But she can’t fly to save her life

And I cry for her, I cry for me
Together, we make nightmares reality
I wish I could hide, I wish I could run
But everyone’s doors are locked shut
When I dreamed this
Dark didn’t exist
I just hoped that I could just pass by
Without having to pay the price
But I was wrong, I was dead wrong
I was so wrong, light’s gone

So if this is the end
And no one’s left here
Can we just go back
To when hope was all we could hear?

I’m sick of all these feelings
Because they never leave us alone
These wounds will never heal
If they scar to the bone
I’ve been touched by a dark angel
Whose wings are closed tight
She might seem beautiful
But she can’t fly to save her life

And she’ll try and I’ll try
But even that won’t save our life
We’re spiraling down, time’s running out
I can’t stop it, we’re going down
All we’ve got to show is remains
From the day we thought our world could change
We were so wrong, dead wrong
We were so wrong, dead wrong
So if this is the end
And no one’s left here
Can we just go back
To when our hearts were all we could hear?
