I have tried for so long,

To carry on.

I've tried so hard to ignore the pain,

That's consuming me.

But over time the pain builds up,

Until it reaches its breaking point.

I tried to force it all back down,

But failed once again.

And now I am losing the one thing,

That has kept me alive for this long.

Even though I know there still might be a chance,

I just can't carry on.

If you take away my salvation,

I will not hezitate to pull away.

Away from this world,

Away from this life,

And away form all the pain.

If my salvation is taken away,

My time here will come to an end.

Darkness is startin to close in on me,

And they all just stand back to watch.

You don't understand,

What's really going on inside my head,

Even though you think you do.

When I lose my only love,

That's how I will know my time is up.

But stil the clock ticks away,

And things just keep getting worse.

You think that I hate you,

But no matter what I do,

I will always love you.

I'm not just doing this for myself.

I'm doing it for you, too.

You'll be happier once my plan is complete.

I'm waiting on you,

To see what happens.

You make one slip up,

And that will tell me that I'm free.

That I'm finally free to leave.

I know I can stop the pain.

You say I'm weak,

But you don't know.

Giving up doesn't always mean you're weak.

Sometimes it just means you're strong enough to let go.

I've always wanted to stay here,

But now I've got to let it all go.

Because my time's up.
