black dahlia murder – the middle goes down lyrics
cold winter cuts – a heart that couldn’t heal
destroyed by it’s own stupidity
a frozen smile – cracks backing frigid lies
i shelter beneath a veil of happiness – a delicate facade
and snow falls as to bury what we had
everything we left behind
although your loving eyes – have left my gaze forever
they’ve been captured in my sleep – although this vacant heart
can’t go on any longer – i feel your soft breath in my dreams
but it shall not be – i cannot shake these feelings
i can’t renounce – this love for you is all i know
i am controlled by sorrow – my hope forever lost
bested by my weakness – will the spring’s warmth never come?
and the snow
still heaping on this broken back
i am lost within it’s persistence
you took the meaning
from this withered soul
i have no strength without your touch
and so it was – and can never be again
and so it was – and will never ever be again.
lost – this love for you is all i know.
weakness – will the spring’s warmth never come?
a little child crying – from the bunk below
i still love you – i can’t cut that tie from my life
love born in regret? was our blight carved into stone?
the stone that lines my heart – i wish i never loved you
cold sweat and eaten nails – i did this all for you.
a broken heart – a clenched fist full of hair – i did this all for you
and any other embrace – will just turn into sh-t
in the shadow of our former love
i’d trade a bl–dy wrist – to live forever in those nights
but the deed hath still been done
