Its hard to leave the past in the past when you know it keeps someone else up at night as wel.

Some memories are like music, like magic

Some memories are followed with smiles and laughs

They twinkle so bright

It seems as

Theres no dark left

At all

My memories are like bullets, like razor blades

My memories are followed with pain and regret

They crawl so deep

Into me

Its hard to tell killing them

From killing myself

Some memories they take everything

Some memories they leave nothing but guilt

Guilt and razor blades

Guilt and blood

And I thought maybe Icould rise above it

Maybe

Maybe I could leave those memories behind me

To whither and weep as they made me do

But its the guilt

Its knowing the same memories

The same splinters of memories

Are lodged deep within you, too

Are stuck in your heart, too

And it was me

Me who put them there

Me who crafted those splinters

Ill never let myself take another breath

Knowing you gave my hope and I gave you pain

Ill never let myself take another breath

Knowing the memories, burned into my skull, are burned in you as well

Ill never let myself take another breath

Knowing Im hurting you

No, Ill never let myself take another breath
