The Becoming – We Close Our Eyes lyrics

I chose the tree-covered path so you wouldn't see my leaving
Once we both lived the same past, but you couldn't hear me screaming
We close our eyes to sever the truth from the lies
We were wrong, too far gone to see there's dark after the light
We close our eyes
I painted a picture for you of who you wanted me to be
The outline was dark and bold, but the colors had gone completely.
