Oh, oh, oh
God, I lose my focus
Lost in darkness, missing brighter days
Never thought I'll end up like this,
Desperate silence keeps calling name!
Is this where our story ends
Is it something I'll never find again?
Am I down on my last chance?
As I turn and leave and say goodbye
Can't forget the tears, I watched you cry
Now I'm scared it might be too late to try
To get you back in my life!

Chorus:
I promise everything's gonna be just like before
I'll make it right!
Now I'm running back to the place before we fell apart
But I'm alive
Cause where I found you not breathing anymore!
I feel this emptiness
Since the night I left him powerless, oh, oh!

Never needed anyone like this
Lately I've been trying to find a way
To reclaim my pride, I'm trying to hide,
But it's more than I can take!
Before I fall too far,
Just wanna surrender in your arms
Can't let time erase another day!
As I turn and leave and say goodbye
Can't forget the tears I watched you cry
Now I'm scared it might be too late to try
To get you back in my life!

Chorus:
I promise everything's gonna be just like before
I'll make it right!
Now I'm running back to the place before we fell apart
But I'm alive
Cause where I found you not breathing anymore!
I feel this emptiness
Since the night I left him powerless, oh, oh!

In my mind every time I see your face,
I remember who I am
And whatever happens this time, I won't let go of your hand!
It feels like the world is calling in
And I can't afford to keep paying,
Paying for my sins!
Let me in!

Chorus: (x3)
I promise everything's gonna be just like before
I'll make it right!
Now I'm running back to the place before we fell apart
But I'm alive
Cause where I found you not breathing anymore!
I feel this emptiness
Since the night I left him powerless, oh, oh!
I'm powerless, oh, oh, oh
Powerless!
