Have You Ever (Holding on to You)

 

Have you ever felt your heart aching?
For me that was my dreams,
pounding the walls of my heart,
screaming for me to go back to you.

Have you ever felt your tears running?
For me that was my soul,
finding its way through me,
desperately trying to get a hold of you.

Have you ever felt you can’t breathe?
For me that was my body,
Clinging to our last moment,
To that last breath of what will never get to be.

 

 

I’ll Walk Away, But I Won’t Go That Far

 

I walk into the room and I see a thunderstorm coming

Because I see you’re angry and you know I’m there.

You start shooting at me your spiteful words

And I start crying, but you don’t really care.

 

I walk out knowing you’re the bad guy of this movie,

But you’re so good at putting up a pity show.

It is always the excuse of what you’ve been through

When you say you’re sorry for the words you throw.

 

All I know is you’re the constant reminder of a heartache,

And the reason why we are drifting apart. 

Does it make you feel better to see my heart breaking?

Because you know I’ll walk away, but I won’t go that far.

 

 

I Feel We’re Coming Down

I feel it’s coming down to nothing,
And I am holding on to hope.
I feel we’re being kept together,
By the last string of a breaking rope.

I feel it’s coming down to this moment,
And I know it might be our last.
This is the one chance, the crucial seconds,
To try to catch this falling glass.

I feel it’s coming down to what we were,
And to what we’ll never be.
It’s coming down to my tears running.
They are falling and darling, so are we.

I feel it’s coming down to this moment.
I feel this is our last.
And I know I’ll hold on forever,
The pieces of our shattered glass.

I feel it’s coming down to nothing.
I feel there’s really no more hope.
And I’ll be holding on forever,
To the last string of a broken rope.
