lyrics

Forever awake
This heart, this body aches
Cousin of death
Deliver me from this place
Never again
I search just to find a pad and a pen
Tell these sleepers where I've been
And take my leave

Doomed to be awake to see all things to their end
Bitter love will haunt the earth until all the life is dead
And its 5 AM
And I'll never sleep again

I try to erase
Just to see the empty page
But the better words are lost
Amongst the mess I made
My mind is overrun
And I think Im just afraid
That the next dawn I see
Wont mean a brand new day

Awake to see all things to their end
Bitter love will haunt the earth until all the life is dead
And its 5 AM
And I'll never sleep again
The ghost of the house turns their lights off for them
But they never know he's there
And this is how its always been
And its 5 AM
And I'll never sleep again

Its 5 AM and I'll never sleep again

It hurts to remember
But even worse to forget
Where all these countless hours went while I was lying here in bed
And I tried not to fail you
Yes, I did my very best
But all I ever gave back was a cold and empty nest
I apologize for that and I'll apologize for this
That if I had one wish
I would take it all back
From where Im standing
Even the sun looks black
