Black Dahlia Murder, The - The Middle Goes Down lyrics

Cold winter cuts, a heart that couldn't heal
Destroyed by its own stupidity
A frozen smile, cracks backing frigid lies
I shelter beneath a veil of happiness - a delicate facade
And snow falls as to bury what we had
Everything we left behind

Although your loving eyes have left my gaze forever
They've been captured in my sleep
Although this vacant heart can't go on any longer
I feel your soft breath in my dreams
But it shall not be
I cannot shake these feelings
I can't renounce this love for you - is all I know
I am controlled by sorrow

My hope forever lost, bested by my weakness
Will the spring's warmth never come?

And the snow, still heaping on this broken back
I am lost within its persistence
You took the meaning from this withered soul
I have no strength without your touch
And so it was and can never be again
And so it was and will never, ever be again

Lost - this love for you is all I know
Weakness - will the spring's warmth never come?

A little child crying from the bunk below
I still love you, I can't cut that tie from my life
Love born in regret? Was our blight carved into stone?
The stone that lines my heart - I wish I never loved you
Cold sweat and eaten nails
I did this all for you
A broken heart, a clenched fist full of hair
I did this all for you
And any other embrace will just turn into shit
In the shadow of our former love
I'd trade a bloody wrist to live forever in those nights
But the deed hath still been done
