    Everyday I wake up hoping to die
    I ask the Lord to deliver me
    From this prison
    You call love
    I beg
    I plead
    I wish
    I pray
    But I’m still here
    Watching you across the breakfast table
    Every morning
    Cold cold eyes
    A heart that beats behind a wall of stone
    Every night laying next to you
    Staring at your turned back
    Unable to rid my heart
    Of the thought of you
    Unable to give up the hope of yesterdays dreams
    Memories of happier times
    Dreams of tommorrows love
    I’m living in a realm of hopes
    Of wishes
    A reality created from tears
    I want to go
    I have to leave
    I need………to stay
    I need love
    Your love
    Everyday I wake up hoping to die
    And then one day I woke up
    Looked into your eyes
    And knew
    I already have
