You and I and death

I'll be your every waking 
every painstaking  dream if you 
let me and if i say please

I'll steal the breath right out of 
you  then I'll have to leave 
breaking every promise 
because you see my heart has 
long forgotten me

You'll hear my voice on high 
then on low whispering through 
dark hollows just for you to 
behold I dip my fingers into you 
pale white to the bone cold and 
seeking you softly sigh and as a 
tear hits your pillow you ask 
me why? and I say I don't 

It's you I have chosen 
you silly soft boy you let me in 
and now I'll never leave, you 
thought I was simply the girl of 
your dreams

You didn't see the rain in my 
eyes the ice in my veins 
couldn't feel the pain
and now I need you and your 
begging me to leave you

My lies no longer amuse you 
but when I tell the truth you 
cover your ears and I smile
I am the shadow by your heart 
your every thought you think of 
in your head the very thing that 
binds you together and the only 
thing that tears you apart I'll be 
here forever you and I and 
death who sits in the corner

So go back to bed you'll see me 
in the morning my dear.
