Black Wings

Close your eyes don’t watch them suffer
Lies without desire, we are falling forever
We are here to make a decision
Trapped in their domain, what is my position?

Affection, attention
Give me some protection
We create fear and pain
Resistance in vain
Do I need your permission?
This life you lived it runs through my veins
With pressure and weakness there is no escape!

We are standing here in this divide
Sinking into depths, we cannot hide
Through heaven and bad times…you let me fall
Whatever it feels like

It means I’m nothing to you!
This must be the end, and I’m falling down
Please try to forgive me for who I am
And I’m begging you right here on my knees
Will I ever be good enough for you?

Denied, your wings
Turn black as night
A warmth like rubies' shine
Upon my heart, burn this blight

With more deception, no need an invitation
Creating the pain, so ashamed, fantastic stimulation
This secret we shared, surrounded by strangers
Shadow of witness, what are my options?

Affection, attention
Give me some protection
We create fear and pain
Resistance in vain
Do I need your permission?
This life you lived it runs through my veins
This pressure and weakness means

I’m nothing to you
This must be the end, and I’m falling down
Please try to forgive me for who I am
And I’m begging you right here on my knees
Will I ever be good enough for you?

We are standing here in this divide
Sinking into depths, we cannot hide
Through heaven and bad times…you let me fall
Whatever it feels like
I’m nothing to you

We will be lost forever
I still feel the bond between us that shatters
I still believe that we can change
That's the pact that we made

Affection, attention
Give me some protection
We create fear and pain
Resistance in vain
Do I need your permission?
This life you lived it runs through my veins
This pressure and weakness

I’m nothing to you
This must be the end, and I’m falling down
Please try to forgive me for who I am
And I’m begging you right here on my knees
Will I ever be good enough for you
