The days are grey and hazy
lasting long enough for me to cry
I couldn't hold back what I was feeling anymore
it only ate me from the inside

I fight the magnetism to fall forward
to jump from the cliff
that looms in the distance
I resist the urge of the darkness

because your voice is calling me
as you sleep with your own demons

your voice is calling me

The selfishness in my body gives me chills
running up and down my spine
a marathon of narcissism
but I fight it because

your voice is calling me

I'll tuck them into bed
and close the door tight
I'll put mine away so I can tend to you, my love
so I can be there when you wake

They'll try to hold you down and
suck you back into the void
But I'll catch your hand as you slip
I won't let you let go

because your voice is calling me
as you sleep with your own demons

your voice is calling me, love
I can hear you cry silently as I close my eyes

I won't let you let go
