Are you really there, or is my mind playing a game?
I lie alone in darkness; do I appear the same?
Have I died or slipped away, is my soul in the in-between?
Must I cling onto life, so my actions can be redeemed?
Whose voice is there in the shadows, is it someone that I know?
That tells me I’m no longer wanted, orders me to let go
Perhaps Jenna never did love me and Tim doesn’t care
How will I ever know the truth, if I can’t feel that you’re there?
Please hold my hand with tenderness, or speak comfort to me;
As I sink deeper into the darkness, must I cry so you can see?
Perhaps I really am dying, but don’t let me die alone
I’m scared beyond explanation, terrified of the unknown.
