Why did I leave you
Screaming in silence
Losing you in the crowd

Where did I leave you
Floating in concrete
Trying to let you drown

I’m in you
You need me

Why did I leave you
Changing mid-color
Stomping you to the ground

Where did I leave you
Stripped of existence
Trying to pull me out

I’m in you
Just free me
I’m with you
You need me

There’s no place here
(You see me)
Only space here
(Come home to me)
Just release me
(You know you know me)
Break these chains and breathe

Why did I leave you
Desperately seeking
Knowing the time is now

When did you leave me
Hopeless despondent
Only to figure out
