Packing up the pictures in an old shoe box
It's so silent I can almost hear you walk
Down the hall standing in front of that window
If heaven is so high, then why are you so low?
Does it feel, that you're taking back the love that made him real

In the darkness you will always see his face
And I could never take the place of him
Today I'm sleeping in

Woke up it's too late and I should be in school
There's always something wrong when you ignore the rules
Never want to see myself in front of that window
Sucking up your tears, didn't want to let me know too much
Reaching out your hand for one last touch

Take me with you, everybody here is fake
And I don't wanna feel the same when you give in
In a lifetime, time will always take our place
But I will lay here shielded from the pain

This is a long time from today
You gave me all that I could take
And gave me strength to carry on

In the darkness, you will always see his face
And I don't wanna be there when you do, give in
In a lifetime, time will always take our place
And I will lay here shielded from the pain

I do whatever I want, you never let me down
I always know when lost somehow you're found
Although life has all thse consequences now
And that's OK, and that's OK
