There’s a fire burning within

Fueled by pure sin

Tormenting thoughts and soundless cries

Reminiscing on each of his lies

I’m so exposed and vulnerable

Lost and incapable

I’m no longer me, I’m missing a piece

My faith in my self has begun to decrease

A rhythmic beating, pulling me through

Who is it to blame, either I or you?

All I have is the past

And I know it can’t last

But the pain I feel now

Will survive somehow

I forgot what it’s like to be by your side

I forgot what it was like before you lied.

I’m broken I’m shattered

I remember every word

It was my cries within that were never heard
