A Shooting Star

You breathed life into my lungs

Took my hand and lifted me from the ashes

You dripped sweet poison into my veins

And burnt me down into nothing

You gave me everything I hoped for

I finally had something to believe in

Now you're just a whisper on a passing wind

And I don't know you anymore

You sparked fire in my soul

Saved me from a desolate past

You drowned me in freezing water

And demolished my future

You gave me everything I hoped for

I finally had something to believe in

Now you're just a whisper on a passing wind

And I don't see you anymore

You filled me with everything you could give

Touched a smile to my lips every morning

You took it all away and left me to starve

And filled my sleep with nightmares

You gave me everything I hoped for

I finally had something to believe in

Now you're just a whisper on a passing wind

And I don't hear from you anymore

I want to spill your blood

But I still dream of kissing you

I want to forget everything

But my skin still burns for your touch

I want to scream until you're deaf

But I still love to hear you laugh

I want to throw you into the cold

But I still remember all the ways I kept you warm

I want to burn your ugly pictures

But I still think of your angel face

I want to hate you

But I still love you

You inspired me to greet the new day

Gave me wings to fly

You made me want to sleep forever

And now I'm a shooting star falling from the sky

But I'm burning up

And I'm about to hit ground

I've burnt up

And I've smashed down

Somewhere in the crash landing

You shattered, and the pieces,

They simmered and disintegrated

And I rise up, red hot

But still alive

I watch our love burn up

And as the smoke rises into the atmosphere

Something dies

You gave me everything I hoped for

I finally had something to believe in

Now you're just a whisper on a passing wind

And I don't love you anymore
