Verse 1
Used to think I was 10 feet tall
I had it all
World came crashin' in
When I heard it was the end
So many things to think about
So little time, so much doubt
Ones I love and leave behind
Tears me up inside

I'm drowning in the dark
chained to my yesterdays
cold and lonely so afraid
Tomorrow's a million miles away

I've run out of time
I don't know why
Just close my eyes
The past rushes by
News is black and white
How I wish it was a lie
They'll fold the flag, say a short prayer
It'll be in a world without me there

Verse 2
Days fade away, become what was
Like a shadow follows the sun
My life summed up in a few short words
Been set free no more hurt
Never thought I'd live forever
But this isn't how I want it to end
Weak and frail a last kiss good-bye
Instead of good night my friend
