Lyrics

I felt a draft at the end of my bed
Opened my eyes and raised my head
A silver light played in the air
Landed on the arm of your old chair

I breathed in slow and steady and deep
You are a memory I know I shouldn’t keep
But the pictures are stuck, they won’t move
No matter how hard I shake in this room

You are the reason
I can’t run away
I can’t pray
I’m always alone
You are the reason I'll never be home

The blue the black the green and red
Your halo hanging from a thread
The shadows from your downcast eyes
The temple you've let crumble inside

These ruins lie so heavy and deep
Feelings buried so far out of reach
Treasures stolen one by one
And left to fade in the heat of the sun

You are the reason
I can’t run away
I can’t pray
I’m always alone
You are the reason I'll never be home

I want to talk but stop and stare
Reach out and there’s nothing there to hold
I feel your warm breath on my skin
I feel you moving deep within

I smell the smoke under the door
Feel the heat crackling on the floor
Taste the sweat on my face
I’m bound and tied in place

You are the reason
I can't find my way
I’m always afraid
I’m lost on my own

I can’t face the day
I want to fade away
I’m lost on my own
You’re the reason I’ve turned to stone
Cold cold stone
