And tonight we burn down everything
We worked so hard to build
The ashes will rain down on me
Memories set aflame,
Sail away
What we said if we can make this
Then we can break this into two
Memories

[Chorus:]
I feel you falling away
I feel you falling away
I feel you falling away from me again
I feel you falling away
I feel you falling away
I feel you falling away from me again

And tonight I will be a vessel
With these sails set aflame
Let this ocean of our memories
Carry me out to sea, I will be
Fall beneath the crashing waves into my grave
I will sleep

[Chorus]

If we can make this
Then we can break it
If we can build it
Then we can burn it down

[Chorus]

I feel you falling away
I feel you falling away
I feel you falling away from me again

And now you're farther away
And now you're farther away
And now you're farther away from me again

And now you're farther away
And now you're farther away
And now you're farther away from me again

And now you're farther away
And now you're farther away
And now you're farther away from me again

And now you're farther away
And now you're farther away
And now you're farther away from me again

Lost and broken
Hopeless and lonely
Smiling on the outside
But hurt beneath my skin
My eyes are fading
My soul is bleeding
I'll try to make it seem okay
But my faith is wearing thin

[Chorus]
So help me heal these wounds
They've been open for way too long
Help me fill this soul
Even though this is not your fault
That I'm open and I'm bleeding
All over your brand new rug
And I need someone to help me sew them up

I only wanted a magazine
I only wanted a movie screen
I only wanted the life I read about and dreamed
And now my mind is an opened book
And now my heart is an opened wound
And now my life is an open
Soul for all to see


So help me heal these wounds
They've been open for way too long
Help fill this soul
Even though this not your fault
That I'm open and I'm bleeding
All over your brand new rug
And I need someone to help me

So you come along
I'll push you away
Then kick and scream for you to stay
Cause I need someone to help me
Oh I need someone to help me

To help me heal these wounds
They've been open for way to long
Help me fill this soul
Even though it is not your fault
That I'm open and I'm bleeding
All over your brand new rug
And I need someone to help me sew them
I need someone to help me fill them
I need someone to help me close them up
