Gloom clouds my mind today, I can’t feel
The air around me seems to be dry,
No joy do I feel coming out of me,
The light I cannot see, this darkness blinds me,
Just storm clouds building, appearing in my sky

I cannot gather my thoughts today, I can’t see
Where these roads are now leading me,
No answers do I have for these questions that appear,
I can see a worried face, that one lonely tear,
In my mirror I can see, only a face of silent melancholy.

I cannot breathe tonight; I forget who I am,
No hands hold mine close; they shun me in misery,
I seem lost today; someone revives my lost sin,
No refuge can I see, a happy heart to take shelter in,
I can only see many a deaf ear to my heartfelt plea.

I loved and I have lost, yet this pain it survives,
In my blood does it run, in memories it does live,
Far away, in a land unseen, where I cannot go,
She is in pain; I cannot forgive myself I know,
For what she did want, I could not give.

Tonight is the end, of this life that I now hate,
I see Death calling me, that aura to set me free,
Without that love, I just cannot now live,
For the pain I put me through, I just cannot forgive,
Goodbye cruel world, this is the last you shall see of me.
