Fallen and Despondent

Behold, I have been so cold inside So bold, I have been through the tide The things you put me through I still love you, I still love you I have been told you have been so full of hate My heart is crushed by apprehension as of late And I have been told you were going ‘round the place, Embracing lover after lover, even without a single trace Set me free from despondency Set me free from this cruel reality This cold-hearted fantasy in mind Has turned my heart into dust, left behind I’ve been a blind fool as of lately And frankly, no one cares about me Set me free from despondency Set me free from this horrid anxiety This cold-hearted feeling inside me Has turned its ugly head towards envy Hold me close till the storm dies down Hold my nose through the waters or I’ll drown The shenanigans you do carelessly I still love you, I still love you, baby I have been told you have been so full of hate My heart is crushed by apprehension as of late And I have been told you were going ‘round the place, Embracing lover after lover, even without a single trace Set me free from despondency Set me free from this cruel reality This cold-hearted fantasy in mind Has turned my heart into dust, left behind I’ve been a blind fool as of lately And frankly, no one cares about me Set me free from despondency Set me free from this horrid anxiety This cold-hearted feeling inside me Has turned its ugly head towards envy I have been compassionate to you, yes, this is true You give me heartless rejection like you always do Bring me to life, for death inside has cradled me close Zip out the strife, for peace will prevail eventually, who knows I have been told you have been so full of hate My heart is crushed by apprehension as of late And I have been told you were going ‘round the place, Embracing lover after lover, even without a single trace Set me free from despondency Set me free from this cruel reality This cold-hearted fantasy in mind Has turned my heart into dust, left behind I’ve been a blind fool as of lately And frankly, no one cares about me Set me free from despondency Set me free from this horrid anxiety This cold-hearted feeling inside me Has turned its ugly head towards envy Set me free from despondency Set me free...set me free...set me free... Possibly, you told me I was cold as ice Now, you are considered my living sacrifice But, behold, I feel bold deep down inside my numb cranium What about you save me from what I have become...become... Been through so many tides Been through my bipolar rides Wish you’d just set me free Just set me free, just set me free From despondency’s hold on me For, I am fallen and despondent Wishing I could be your moon, so radiant Praying I could be your home and safe haven Wishing I could be your sun, efflorescent Praying I could heal you, my love so brazen
