lyrics

I'm losing the light
not here anymore
Looking at darkness
and I don't want to go there
losing my fight
scar upon scar
nobody can carry me
And I'm going so far
Sorrow shadows me instead of love
where is that young girl so wild and brave

I know I've had my day
I've had my lovers and my way
I've had the spotlight shining down
I had you all, you never made a sound
and now all that I have left are things
and now all that I have left are things

I'm losing the light
sink down through the floor
promises fading now
what were all my wishes for
losing my fight
scar upon scar
nobody can carry me
And I'm going so far

Sorrow shadows me instead of love
where is that young girl so wild and brave

I know, I know I've had my day
I've had my lovers and my way
I've had the spotlight shining down
I had you all, you never made a sound
and now all that I have left are things
and now all that I have left are things

I know, I know I've had my day
I've had my lovers and my way
I've had the spotlight shining down
I had you all, you never made a sound
and now all that I have left are things
and now all that I have left are things things to comfort me
