How I Remain

Here, here I lay at the end,
There’s nothing left we can’t pretend.
I close the door the windows too,
There is no more, not a hint of you.
Erase my thoughts my feelings are gone,
I can’t hold on to an empty song.

Loneliness is creeping through the cracks in my window,
And I, I don’t know how I could be feeling like this when,
Well you know, I’m so in love with you,
I’m so in love with you.

Embrace this part of me and you’ll want to let me go,
Let me go.
Well I, I feel lower than I’ve ever been,
I’ve been pretty low,
Pretty, pretty damn low.

I, I feel worthless don’t you know,
I feel empty and so cold.
You know, you could hurt me so bad right now,
And you wouldn’t even know,
In fact I think you already have.

Where, where am I to go when I need to talk,
I got no one but my guitar.
What am I to do when I’m lost in thoughts of you,
When I’m needing to escape, escape this place,
This lonely place.

Loneliness is creeping through the cracks in my door,
You, you keep asking me, asking me for more,
I don’t have anymore.

I’m feeling lost, lost without,
Without doubt, you can’t ask, 
Ask what this is about,
I just regret,
No I didn’t say that.
I don’t regret I just gotta let it go,
Just gotta let it out
I don’t, I don’t, I don’t wanna let this feeling go.

I’m so in love with you,
But you’re slipping through
I’m so in love with you
Am I going to lose you, tonight?

Now I fall apart inside this darkness, darkness.
Now I fall apart inside your arms again, arms again.
As I drift away, what else is there for me to say.
I’m falling, apart.

I’m gone, I’m gone, I’m gone,
I’m gone, I’m gone, I’m gone,
I’m gone, I’m gone, I’m gone

I’m so in love with you, tonight.

Still after you’ve left, just laying in this bed.
This is, how I remain.
Oh how I remain.
