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
