Disclaimer: I don't own Red Dwarf. Never have, and I suspect I never wiil. (Cries uncontrollably)
Let me stay.
For every time you caused me pain,
I leave you to shed tears again.
My refuge is a shadowed place,
You cannot come, I know your face.
In my mind.
Claiming that I love too much,
Yet hating every loathsome touch.
I'm not alone, you're always there,
To see my lies, my soul laid bare.
I run away to gaze at stars,
And let you follow, heal my scars.
To know that you will not be mine,
Sorrow, I hope, will ease in time.
Deep down I know I'm just a child,
Embrace me stranger, tame the wild.
Whispering slowly you know I hear
Meaningless, a dead man's tears.
Hold my hand.
Within the dark and weep,
We know that we are in too deep.
How can I ever let you go?
The only one I've come to know.
I see you with me, hear your scream,
I sleep and yet I cannot dream.
Didn't wish to be a ghost,
And it's your heart I crave the most.
I love you.
I trawl forever through the skies,
Masking the hurt behind my eyes.
I want to live, savour each breath,
But I'm stuck here, the king of Death.
In your arms.
My heart it beats a weary tune,
I know that I am not immune.
It's you I yearn for, cry and miss,
All I am is in your kiss.
