The sun?s setting in the distance,
Its dropping just down just over you.
And my mind?s lost in indecision,
About what to do about me and you.
You tell me you love me,
And in my heart I know that it?s true,
Then you push me to my limits,
And I feel how deep my love runs for you?.

Chorus 1
The abyss my hearts falling into I tell my friends I?ll be fine
But I?m petrified of a life without you, in this Abyss left by you.

Its 4 a.m. and I?m awake again
Waking up to thoughts of you.
Wondering what you?ve been doing
Wondering what?s become of you
And what?ll become of me
And what?ll become of two
Hearts that made the choices
To walk away from all the good that was me and you

Chorus 2
The abyss my hearts falling into over you and I know
I?ll love again but where and when, I don?t know

And I?d do it all over again tomorrow
Just to touch what we lost found and borrowed
One more time?.

Keep thinking about holding you
Your last time in my arms
Feeling how you touched me
Left me believing with all my heart
That there was no leaving me
And there was no leaving you
And then the days passed between us
And I heard less and less from you
