Lyrics

I couldn't take it, couldn't stand another minute
Couldn't bear another day without you in it.
All of the joy that I had known for all my life
Was stripped away from me the minute that you died.

To have you in my life was all I ever wanted
But now without you I'm a soul forever haunted.
Can't help but feel that I had taken you for granted
No way in Hell that I can ever comprehend this.

I wasn't dreaming when they told me you were gone
I was wide awake and feeling that they had to be wrong.
How could you leave me when you swore that you would stay?
Now I'm trapped inside a nightmare every single f'ing day.

It's like a movie, but there's not a happy ending
Every scene fades black, and there's no pretending.
This little fairy tale doesn't seem to end well
There's no knight in shining armor who will wake me from the spell.

I know you didn't plan this
You tried to do what's right.
But in the middle of this madness
I'm the one (I'm the one, I'm the one)

You left to win this fight
Red like roses
Fills my head with dreams and finds me
Always closer
To the emptiness and sadness

That has come to take the place of you.
I know you're broken down by anger and by sadness
You feel I left you in a world that's full of madness.
Wish I could talk to you, if only for a minute

Make you understand the reasons why I did it.
I wanna tell you that you're all that ever mattered
Want you to know that, for eternity, I'm shattered.
I tried so hard just to protect you, but I failed to

And in a prison of abandonment I've jailed you.
I never planned that I would leave you there alone
I was sure that I would see you when I made it back home.
And all the times I swore that it would be okay

Now I'm nothing but a liar, and you're thrown into the fray.
This bedtime story ends with misery ever after
The pages are torn, and there's no final chapter.
I didn't have a choice, I did what I had to do

I made a sacrifice, but forced a bigger sacrifice on you.
I know you've lived a nightmare
I caused you so much pain.
But, baby, please don't do what I did

I don't want (I don't want, I don't want)
You to waste your life in vain.
Red like roses
Fills my head with dreams and finds me
Always closer

To the emptiness and sadness
That has come to take the place of you.
You're not the only one who needed me; I thought you understood.
You were the one I needed, and you left me as I always feared you would.
Would I change it if I could?
It doesn't matter how
The petals scatter now.
Every nightmare just discloses
It's your blood that's red like roses
And no matter what I do
Nothing ever takes the place of you.
Red like roses
Fills my head with dreams and finds me
Always closer
To the emptiness and sadness
That has come to take the place
of
you.
