Nightmare

(Verse One)
Hear those faint cries in the night
Telling me to continue this fight
Maybe it will turn out alright
But the sad thing is you don’t even care
You tear down my stone walls
Watch me as I slowly fall
Until I completely loose it all
From trying to escape this nightmare

(Verse Two)
But the memories are haunting me
As they steal my once patriotic freedom
And trap me underneath the sea
But the sad thing is you don’t even care
You watch as I nearly drown
Barely can come back around
And nearly fade into the ground
As I run from this living nightmare

(Chorus)
You crawl underneath my skin
And burn me deep from within
As you try to reach for the win
But the sad thing is you don’t even care
You continue tearing me down
Watch as I cry for help aloud
And forget where dreams are found
Because right now, I am living a nightmare

(Verse Three)
I’ve always wanted to know
Where did our happily ever after go?
Why doesn’t it ever surface and show?
But the sad thing is you don’t even care
You say not everything works out
As you shade this picture with doubt
Causing me to forget what love is about
Because I’ve been acting in this nightmare

(Chorus)
You crawl underneath my skin
And burn me deep from within
As you try to reach for the win
But the sad thing is you don’t even care
You continue tearing me down
Watch as I cry for help aloud
And forget where dreams are found
Because right now, I am living a nightmare

(Bridge)
The leading master of disguise
Hidden behind your deep blue eyes
Invading my pretty little mind
But the sad thing is you don’t even care
You have too strong of a desire
To light this love on fire
But it’s too late; I’ve already retired
From this horrifying nightmare

(Chorus)
You crawl underneath my skin
And burn me deep from within
As you try to reach for the win
But the sad thing is you don’t even care
You continue tearing me down
Watch as I cry for help aloud
And forget where dreams are found
Because right now, I am living a nightmare
