Pink Skies

Past the eternal foot falls

she walked along the hall

the tears that fell lonely

only feeling void of life


This death of her life

made her want to kill

the coldness drew in

can't believe it's gone


Make this feeling leave

this pain won't go away

bleeds her life in fear

soaking into the pain


Under the gray clouds

floating on pink skies

under the gray clouds

floating on pink skies


Wake up miss loneliness

it's time to live this life

that grows darker every day

love is too far from gone


We'll see what we can do

what can be stripped away

how long before you break

leave you with what's left


Rubbing your face in it

kicking you down so low

making the best with it

when you just want to die
