Through my eyes I breathe and see,

 

the color of the pain you gave to me.

It's hard to see and accept this truth,

and how your love destroyed my youth.

And how my love just went in vain,

crimson is the color of my pain.

Take me wind, oh! take me free,

take me into the arms of him.

The arms of whom broke my heart,

and left me breathing the color of my pain.

Take me wind that I don't know,

I never learned to let him go.

And now I must go on alone,

my heart he turned into his throne.

I see the hurt that he has done, I wonder why I thought he was the one.

I make myself each day believe,

that God this love will soon retrieve.

And when the sun consumes the rain,

perhaps, as well, this crimson pain.

And if I die with hurt inside,

you'll see them all through these brown eyes.

And then you'll see that it is true,

I've always been in love with you.
