I've been left out alone like a damn criminal
I've been praying for help cause I can't take it all
I'm not done,
It's not over.

Now I'm fighting this war since the day of the fall
And I'm desperately holding on to it all
But I'm lost
I'm so damn lost

Oh I wish it was over,
And I wish you were here
Still I'm hoping that somehow

Cause your soul is on fire
A shot in the dark
What did they aim for when they missed your heart?

I breathe underwater
It's all in my hands
What can I do
Don't let it fall apart
A shot in the dark

In the blink of an eye
I can see through your eyes
As I'm lying awake I'm still hearing the cries
And it hurts
Hurts me so bad

And I'm wondering why I still fight in this life
Cause I've lost all my faith in this damn bitter strife
And it's sad
It's so damn sad

Oh I wish it was over,
And I wish you were here
Still I'm hoping that somehow

Cause your soul is on fire
A shot in the dark
What did they aim for when they missed your heart?

I breathe underwater
It's all in my hands
What can I do
Don't let it fall apart
A shot in the dark

A shot in the dark
A shot in the dark
A shot in the dark

A shot in the dark

I feel you fading away
I feel you fading away
I feel you fading away
I feel you fading away

Cause your soul is on fire
A shot in the dark
What did they aim for when they missed your heart?

I breathe underwater
It's all in my hands
What can I do
Don't let it fall apart
Oh, your soul is on fire
A shot in the dark
What did they aim for when they missed your heart?

I breathe underwater
It's all in my hands
What can I do
Don't let it fall apart
A shot in the dark

A shot in the dark
A shot in the dark
A shot in the dark

A shot in the dark
