"I write for the same reason I breathe -- because if I didn't, I would die." -Isaac Asimov


Dark clouds come rolling in, reflecting in your eyes
The air is getting thin, darkness fills the skies
The rain is pouring, soaking us two
You're searching for someone to help save you
But then who's left here to save me
Some knight in shining armor you turned out to be
The darkness falls on me
The dakness follows me

Chorus:
Why should I hold on
If that will lead to heartbreak
How can I let go
If you're what keeps me alive
I couldn't stand if you were gone
Don't know which path to take
And I hust don't know
If I will survive

I see your smile, a small break of light
Before that light is swallowed, leaving only night
I poured my every hope into what I thought we could be
Fooled myself into thinking I had escaped the misery
Now I'm standing in the rain, tears gushing from my eyes
And the saddest part is, I'm not even surprised
The darkness falls on me
The darkness follows me

Chorus:
Why should I hold on
If that will lead to heartbreak
How can I let go
If you're what keeps me alive
I couldn't stand if you were gone
Don't know which path to take
And I hust don't know
If I will survive

You protect me, you affect me, I need you now
You broke me, you hurt me, and I don't know how
I can't see, I can't breathe
Help me make the dakness leave

What do you do when the guy that hurts you
Is the same guy you always run to

Chorus:
Why should I hold on
If that will lead to heartbreak
How can I let go
If you're what keeps me alive
I couldn't stand if you were gone
Don't know which path to take
And I hust don't know
If I will survive

The darkness falls on me
The darkness follows me
Until I can't even see
What you're doing to me

Have any of your songs been posted in teen ink magazine? i haven't subscribed so i wouldn't know, but i wouldn't be surprised if at least one of them has.
