New Years Day – Away lyrics

All alone
In the darkness of my room
The sunlight bleeding through my blinds
Like an angel's open wound
On the outside (I seem fine)
But on the inside (I'm not alright)
Every decision that I make
Just seems to be my worst mistake

Away, away from everything that hurts
Away from this pain I feel inside
Struggling to bend these lips
Into a smile I'll soon dismiss
My heart is not a place that I call home
I just want to be alone

Still alone
In the darkness of my room
Staring out between my blinds
Watching the daylight be consumed
Like the joy that (I once felt)
Dealing with these (cards I'm dealt)
When they said that life's not fair
They must have seen me sitting here

It's funny how one moment can change everything
And in a second shatter every hope and dream you have
And leave you with an empty feeling you can't seem to fill
And empty space that only time might heal


Breath in deep and fill this chest with something more, more than emptiness
