Is there ever really a right time
You had led me to believe
Some day you would be there for me

When the stars above aline
When you weren't so concerned
I kept looking for the clues
So I waited in the shadows of my heart
And the still the time was never right

Until one day I stopped caring
And began to forget why I long to be so close
And I disappear into the darkness
And the darkness turns to pain
Never went away
Until all that remained
Was buried
Deep beneath the surface

A shell of what things could have been
Tired bones beneath the vail
Of guarded secret are too frail
Sad to think I ever knew
You were searching for the words
For the moment to emerge
Yet the moment never came
You couldn't risk my fragile frame

Until one day,
You stopped caring
And began to forget why you tried to be so close
And you disappeared into the darkness
And the darkness turned to pain
And never went away
Until all that remained
Was buried
Deep beneath the surface

(Piano solo)

I would scream just to be heard
As if yelling at the stars
I was bleeding just to feel

You would never say a word
Kept me reaching in the dark
Always something to conceal

Until one day I stopped caring
And began to forget why I longed to be so close
And I disappear into the darkness
And the darkness turned to pain
And never went away
Until all that remained was buried
Deep beneath the surface
... Beneath the surface...
