THE FADE

Before I met you in the rain,

I was so afraid.

I couldn’t think beyond the day…

But nothing could convince me

Of what I didn’t want to see.

So I told myself

I was ready for the fade…

You said we shouldn’t live like that,

“It’s not the way to be”.

And looking back, it blows my mind…

You were always praying,

For a sign that life would change…

So when that moment passed,

We could never be the same…

So how and when can I go back,

To the way I want to be?

To the comfort of your wonder,

To the love you’ve offered me?

How do we recover… the memories we sold…

And where do angels go,

To truly be alone?

I understand what you’re saying,

I know the way you feel…

But it’s not right to do this now…

I gave so many chances. More than you ever did deserve.

And when it got too tough,

You chose to let me burn…

You made me feel so very calm.

You silenced all the screams…

That filled my head, and cursed my dreams…

You knew how much I needed you,

And you promised that you cared…

But when I came for you, you were never really there…

So how and when can I go back,

To where I felt so free?

To the wonder of our comfort,

To the peace you’d offered me?

How do we recover… the memories we sold…

And where do angels go,

To truly be alone?

But how and when can we go back,

To the magic of the day…

Before disintegration,

In the warmth of your embrace…?

The UnderDown has got me now,

And now I truly see… There’s no place left

For innocence to be…

But where do angels go, to truly 

Be at peace?
