All that I have left is the sound of my own breath
And then darkness falls so quiet
Here’s a feeling I’ve had many times before

Every time you leave it’s your arms that I bereave
Then the next time to leave’s yours
I watch the ghosts of your footsteps by our door

When I come back home
I sing stories to the shadows on our walls
Looming menacingly
You used to save me from my darkest mind
When you still had the time

All that I have left is the sound of my own breath
And then darkness falls so quiet
But the loneliness can have it’s own allure

I can keep the quiet and keep myself inside
Cuz my records are old friends
I have trusted in them many times before

When I sleep alone
I sing stories to the shadows on our walls
Looming menacingly
You used to save me from my darkest mind
When you still had the time

I wish that we weren’t away
I wish that we’d stay the same
But hoping means nothin’
As darkness turns into day

All that I have left is the sound of my own breath
And the darkness of the road
Moving faster with so many miles to go

Try to keep it up darling don’t forget our love
When darkness falls so quiet
My heart will be the only home you know

When you come back home
Sing some stories to the shadows on our walls
Looming menacingly
I used to save you from your darkest mind
When I still had the time

When you sleep alone
Sing some stories to the shadows on our walls
Looming menacingly
I used to save you from your darkest mind
When I still had the time
