SIX WORD » LIFE

Long night. Empty bottles, empty faces.

by Wench on November 13, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr


Been one long night
Empty bottles, empty faces
And it don't feel right
But it's been a while since I did

And you say, little darling, don't leave me
I don't even know your name
But what you do, it's such a mystery
And if you leave, I will never be the same

Been one long year
Been a lot of scary places
And I thought I found love
But I only found the traces

And little darling, don't leave me
I don't even know your name
But you're my world, you are my everything
And if you leave, I will never be the same

And I hold my breath
And watch as life passes me by.
Darling, losing you is death.
Please don't ever let me die.


Wrote it a few years ago, had it stuck in my head the past few days. Been a while, but I broke out the guitar today and remembered how much I've missed it.
