I walk the streets alone at night,
To help release all the feelings inside,
So I can scream with no one around,
Fall to my knees and smother the sound.

How could I miss the feelings you had,
Too self-absorbed to notice things were so bad,
I'm still in shock, I can't sleep at night,
So I just walk til the morning brings light.

I - I can't catch my breath.
I - I'm scared to death
What do I do?
What do I do?

You gave no signs before you left,
I never sensed that you were even upset,
And all this time I thought we would be
Together for an eternity.

My future dreams were tied up in you,
Now that you're gone, I don't know what to do,
You disappeared without a goodbye,
It feels so wrong that you won't be part of my life.

I - I can't catch my breath.
I - I'm scared to death
What do I do?
What do I do?

I hyperventilate when I start to think,
About the parts of me that walked away with you.
My open heart lies bleeding, will it ever stop,
You were the only one it ever knew.
What do I do?

I - I can't catch my breath.
I - I'm scared to death
What do I do?
What do I do?

I really liked the vocal tracks and the harmonizing well-done instrumentation was good as well.

The vocals and harmonies are very good. The instrumentation is very good. The recording is nice and clean and well balanced. I like this song. I hope you have good luck with it!
