Silent Place for the Both of Us

Being alone, just waiting for the dark
nights pass with us having nothing to say
I look in your eyes, tho it’s missing sparks
We were wishing for the end of the day

I was blinded by anger, hope you see
Hiding myself, I should go for a dive
I don’t want to lose you, how can this be
In your heart, you wish to not be alive

You say I was the one to make things bright
But you stood there, just for me to get fling
I just want you to hold me through the night
Look at me with those eyes, don’t say a thing

You may hide those pain and held them above
But I swear to face them with you, my love.
