Awake

I've felt loneliness here and there, But I've still been alright I've gotten used to the feeling But it's different tonight I guess I've been sleeping For almost too long; 'Cause it's been near forever Since my heart's played this song I could cry I could die and I'm lying awake Just waiting and waiting for the silence to break I can feel the heat rising from the depths of my heart And now I'm just waiting to be torn apart I've felt happiness here and there All thanks to this one But how long will this last Until I'm back on the run? I guess I've been scared For almost too long; 'Cause now that I'm ready I just can't play this song I could cry I could die and I'm lying awake Just waiting and waiting for the silence to break I can feel the heat rising from the depths of my heart And now I'm just waiting to be torn apart And I just wanna tell you how much we could be But the words can't come out when your heart's not with me.
