lyrics

The door was open for everyone,
but only you entered without an excuse.
And you taught me nothing but living life,
and acknowledge someday our body dies.

Now the locks are broken and I force myself,
to enter rooms I’m afraid of.
Where the walls are cold, but not as cold as our hands.
I paint the sky above the strange hilled land.

Am I alone.
Am I alone.

You left me no presents or wise words to quote,
just a simple memory of living.
And without the will to even try,
for explaining us kissing goodbye.

The yellow stone in the sky,
greets the pale every morning.
And to hold my hand is all I ask of life,
stuck in my chest there is a hunting knife.

Am I alone.
Am I alone.

Oh, the paper on the wall is fading,
and there is no one left to talk to.
On the wooden floor, I will dance some more,
with the memory I have of you.

The door was open for everyone,
but only you entered without an excuse.
And you taught me nothing but living life,
and acknowledge someday our body dies.
