From This Heart Painted Black

As I lie down to sleep, I know she's crying;
With every breath I take she weeps for me.
I close my eyes, and try to get to sleeping,
But in the darkness I feel her surround me.

Valentine's Day is just around the corner -
We should be laughing; deeply in love.
But things have changed as I've grown older,
This troubled heart, it's just had enough.

I wish I could hold you for one last time;
Sing to you of times you've had with me.
I know it's cruel, but tell me is it a crime,
To walk where this heart of mine takes me?

I don't want to leave, or tell you goodbye;
I'll take it all back and change this ending.
But now you've bled this heart all but dry,
And all it yearns for is a new beginning.

I won't ever forget you; yes I never will -
Everything I do will remind me of you.
I pray someday if my heart's beating still,
It will find it's way back... back to you.
