You’ve been there since the beginning,

Still I can’t help but feel this is not living.

You make me feel so paranoid,

But when you’re gone there’s a void.

When did I start to lose myself?

Some days I want to run away,

And hide up on the highest shelf.

Maybe I’ll run today.

When did I start to think,

That I could make myself believe,

In what it is you are telling me.

In all the things I cannot see?

“They love you”

Even a blind man could see that that’s not true.

“Two more years”

Yeah, two years till I face my biggest fears. 

I wish I knew how to tell you,

I wish it wasn’t true,

But I’m completely in love with you.

Even when I’m separated from you.
