lyrics

I don't want to go to sleep tonight
Don't want to close my eyes
Don't want to drift away
You tell me things will be alright
You tell me that you'll never go
You'll always be right here

No matter how hard I try
The sand gets thrown into my eyes
I slowly spiral down
Into the abyss where you can't be found

Now I'm alone again
My fingers clutch the air
Where your hand once was
I turn and you're not there
I don't know where I am
You left me here
You left me
Alone

There's no one on the street
The lights are out
The emptiness and darkness holds me down
I try to scream but there's no sound
I try to run but my legs are frozen to the ground

Why can't I find you
Why do you always disappear
I'll wrap my arms around you
But when I look there's no one there

Now I'm alone again
My fingers clutch the air
Where your hand once was
I turn and you're not there
I don't know where I am
You left me here
You left me
You left me here
You left me
