Can't Handle This

There are no words in this world

The pain inside can’t be destroyed

You’re the reason for it all

Everyone I’ve been pushing away

Your worlds the one I scorn

 

Someday the mirror will scream

And you’ll see the you I see

The ugly beast in you

Killed the soul I met that morning

What was good is gone

What was once your smile is now a song

That makes us cry

What was once your life has now died

 

I’m not talking just about the us

I’m talking about the in between

The scattered and the foreseen

The problems that lie inherent within

They’re the troubles plaguing this

 

The moment you lost me

Was when you let the words win

You let them happen

You let them be thrown at me

Like I was nothing

You watched and waited

Waited to see what happened to me

 

So let’s let the sun set

Let the world fade to this

Let’s watch the people sleep

Leave our pain open to bliss

When it’s dark we’ll walk away

We’ll never have to spend another day

Another minute together

We can only hope that lasts forever
