Memories fade into the silence
Haunting me tonight
With hope's last breath I take this moment in
It will be the last

That morning breaks
And sunlight takes the pain away

Ever after never came
And I'm still waiting for a life that never was
And all the dreams I lay to rest
Are ghosts that keep me
After all that I've become
I am only one

I close my eyes and bleed this empty heart
Of all that longs to die
When faces lie and love will falter
I'm left with only time

And time will break
The dreams that take the pain away

Ever after never came
And I'm still waiting for a love I'll never have
And all the dreams I lay to rest
Are ghosts that keep me
After all that I've become
I am only one

I'm on my own here
And no one's left to be the hero of
This fairy tale gone wrong
As night will fall my heart will die alone

Ever after never came
And I'm still waiting for my heart to beat again

And all the dreams I've laid to rest
Are ghosts that keep me
After all that I've become
I am only one
I am only one
I am only one

    We grow up with the hope that we have a soul mate. And when the reality of life and love hits, it hurts, and it hurts badly, but we usually manage to learn and work through our disappointments in love and life

    Recently my son commited suicide and whenever i hear this song, i think of him and all the pain he must have been in. I am playing this at his memorial. He was an idealest and he did believe in happily ever after. Thank you for helping me to understand.

    "ever after never came", so... Her boyfriend/husband died, and now she's waiting 4 her life with him, for a love that now she'll never have, and 4 her heart to beat again, cause she can't forget him =(, i just feel so much like this u.u

    To me, she's talking about suicide and she's in so much pain and she wants it to end. At least that's what i get from it and i feel so much like this song. I really think she wants to die in these lyrics.

    This song is about heart break and loneliness. For example she says fairy tale gone wrong as night will fall my heart will die alone.
