Look away, pray for salvation,
And pray, for a sweet conversation.
The problem's not with you.
It's without you.
I love the way that you told me I'm better
The way you described me in letters.
There's nothing I can do,
Is there nothing I can do.

I'll scream just to get your attention.
I have seen what happens to a lonely heart.
And I'll scream just to get your attention.
I have seen the nightmares that tore us apart.

So long, wish you would tell me your wrong.
That were not dead and buried,
And save your harsh goodbyes,
Your salty liquid eyes.
And this song, is just another song.
Don't know why I bother.
I can't tell truth from lies.
I can't tell truth from lies.

I'll scream just to get your attention.
I have seen what happens to a lonely heart.
And I'll scream just to get your attention.
I have seen the nightmares that tore us apart.

Your fire's burning bright.
It's burning me alive.
No one can save me now.
Your touch was all I had.
It's eating me alive.
No one can save me now.

I'll scream just to get your attention.
I have seen what happens to a lonely heart.
And I'll scream just to get your attention.
I have seen the nightmares that tore us apart.

... Your touch was all I had.
