Listen Closely,
Stand still for one moment'.
Can you hear me?
When I whisper your name at night starring into the stars,
Do you feel a cold chill come over you?
Do you feel me like I feel you?
Do you long for my tender kisses for that soft gentle touch?
Or am I just delusional in this madness I once thought was love?
When I pray, do you feel the power of love I am sending?
When I cry, do you feel the pain I am feeling?
Every time you turn me away, do you know how I hurt, do you even care?
Do you ever sit alone and wonder what things might have been like together?
I am at war with myself every day, 
telling myself why I should forget you, why I should let go, 
how foolish I am for hanging on'
Nothing seems to work. I have tried making myself hate you, to not care'
I have reminisced the past, and even dwelled on all the bad memories, 
all the horrible words we have shared together 
trying to convince my self you are the enemy,
So many times I see you in my dreams’ and I am sure to see you tonight.
There you are, within reach, yet I cannot hold you, 
I cannot kiss you as I desire, 
and I cannot make you love me as I have prayed for so many nights.
How could I love you so much, yet you hardly know I exist?
You are so careless with your feelings, so nonchalant.
I don't know how you do it, How can you not feel my love inside you?
You will forever be there; you are the burden in my heart that will burn me forever.
My head is telling me I am a fool and that the pain must end
My heart tells me love has no end, no boundaries, no rules or fine lines
you know nothing about this pain, about the torture
What I wouldn't give to let go, to set you free from my heart.
I have searched and searched to find a way to release this pain, 
and I am left with nothing
Without your love, I will always be left with nothing.
This is a game I cannot win, I cannot overcome this, 
I want to give up, but there is no point in that, 
because the feeling I feel will still be there
No matter how defeated I may feel, I can't end this.
