If Tomorrow...

by Aprihope

Night is falling on me again

Harder and darker than I can't remember when

The light I thought would never fade

Is slipping away... You're slipping away

Is it my fault for starting to believe

A happy ending could come to me

That anything that beautiful could be true

When I know I only deserve a lie

But I played the fool, trying to hold on to

The sunset colors that paint the sky

The home I found in your eyes

If all the breath left my body

If the stars fell and left me blind

Somehow I would see again

I'd breathe again

With you here by my side

But if you were taken from me

I'd lose the life within my soul

If tomorrow comes without you

I'll never be whole

The fear falls down and all around

You slip through my fingers without a sound

I didn't turn my back, so how did I lose you

I tried to hold you safe, so the world couldn't bruise you

I guess it's my fault for letting myself believe

A happy ending was meant for me

That anything so beautiful could really last

Why did I almost trust it this time

When it's never been true in the past

And your love was by far my most treasured prize

Warm like the home I found in your eyes

If all the breath left my body

If the stars fell and left me blind

Somehow I would see again

I'd breathe again

With you here by my side

But if you were taken from me

I'd lose the life within my soul

If tomorrow comes without you

I'll never be whole

Slipping away...

Oh I can feel you

Slipping away...

If I could heal you

I'd trade my life today

Don't you hear me calling

But this is still real

And you keep on falling

If all the breath left my body

If the stars fell and left me blind

Somehow I would see again

I'd breathe again

With you here by my side

But if you were taken from me

I'd lose the life within my soul

If tomorrow comes without you

I'll never be whole

Night is falling on me again

Harder and darker than I can't remember when

And I can't remember a reason to seek out the dawn

And I don't know how the world goes on

But I close my crying eyes to see

And pray tomorrow never comes for me
