Ordinary Life.

I don't have much to say anymore.

Nothing i could say

would make you stay


There's not enough time

for me to do what i want to do.

I love you

but i can't hide the truth.

I can't choose

who i want to be.

Please be there,

i need you there for me.


I can't take no more,

i've had too much.

I can't give you everything

but i love you...

Isn't that enough?


So there's nothing to fear,

dry your tears

because i'm here...

I'll stay...

I'm not going away...

So after tonight

i go back to my ordinary life.


I don't have much to say anymore.

Nothing i could say

would make you stay


There's not enough time

for me to do what i intend to do.

I love you

and that's something i shouldn't have to prove.

But how do i say that?

How can i say i've changed my mind?

How can i lie?

After cursing you

and hurting you

and wanting you to die...

I want to try...

So don't cry,

dry your tears.

I can't get you out of my life,

even when you're not by my side,

but i'll be here when you need me

and everything will be alright.

I'll still be here

living my ordinary life.


And if you deceive me

i won't die.

I will rise at morning

sleep at night,

grope in darkness,

see in light,

and tell unfailingly

black from white...

And if you leave me

i can't deny

that i'll still be here

living my ordinary life.
