Forgotten Hopes - Lyrics by Anathema


Lyrics
Hey you rotting in an alcoholic empty shell
Banging on the walls of your intoxicated mind
Do you ever wonder why you were left alone
As your heart grew colder and finally tourned to stone
Did I punish you for dreaming?
Did I break your heart and leave you crying?
Don't you ever dream of escaping...
Pathetic oblivion
Forgotten hopes buried in your soul's lonely grave
Pathetic oblivion
Remember how you were before you locked your heart away
Did I punish you for dreaming?
Did I break your heart and leave you crying?
Don't you ever dream of escaping...
