Flicker Away

I see our shadow on the wall
A picture of our failure,
A memory of a time before

But now you're gone and I'm alone
Solitude, a sorry word
Unuttered, but not unfelt

PRE-CHORUS
When the nights get lonely,
The days become harder
And time passes even slower

CHORUS
The lights flicker away
Hope dwindling with each passing day
Hearts falling more and more astray
As the lights flicker away

City life in the lonely nights
Brings back so many forlorn memories
Of a time when we tried in vain to be happy
But you spelled my name in the stars
And I pressed yours to my heart

Somehow time changes everything
And change makes time go by so slowly
Feeling like a stranger in my own reverie

Do you think of me now?

PRE-CHORUS
When the nights get lonely,
The days become harder
And time passes even slower

CHORUS
The lights flicker away
Hope dwindling with each passing day
Hearts falling more and more astray
As the lights flicker away
