Alone
Once more alone
As the memories weave and fade away
Separation mocks me
Frustration consumes me
Inspiration has grown cold
Even as the longing renews

Desperate I return to you
Broken I return to you
We circle over and over
But still I return to you

What will it take to escape you
What will it take to escape you
Is this what you wanted
To see me humbled
Is this what you asked for
The final word

Desperate I return to you
Broken I return to you
We circle over and over
But still I return to you

I would tear my eye's out
To never see your face
But all of these scars
Can never be erased

Choke on your words
That have left me bleeding
And may your tear's
May your tear's burn

We circle over and over
Still I return
I return (OOH)

Desperate I return to you
Broken I return to you
We circle over and over
But still I return to you

What will it take
To escape you
What will it take
To escape

    I think that anyone with an addiction to something can relate to this song. Not just an addiction to a substance like drugs or alcohol but it can be to money, gambling an ex-lover maybe. It’s just about applying yourself and situation(s) to the song.

    Beautiful song! I think its about hate and love. This person is trying to let go but they obviously can't no matter how hard they try.
