The Endless Distance

lyrics

In the darkest of days
We ravished through the haze
The memories did fade
But the pain remained
We lived with the dead
Survived while others bled
The burdens of the past
Parted us at last
An ocean of tears
We cried for many years
We could've had it all
But we tore it all apart

The fire's still alive
But we could never burn the sea
Where shores dissolve to skies
The endless distance kills me

Theses wounds can never heal
Life now seems surreal
Emotions cold as stone
Like a ghost I walk alone
But I am not ashamed
This bear could not be tamed
At least I can be blessed
That I've had the best of you

The fire's still alive
But we could never burn the sea
Where shores dissolve to skies
The endless distance kills me
And now I hear your cries
The endless distance calls me

Remnants of the past
These ruins made to last
I can't resist your call
We could´ve had it all

Everything for us
Everyone on their own
We for one another
We should've had it all
And now I hear your cries
In the endless distance

Now I know
We perished in bliss
Now I know
The suffocating kiss
And I know
We brought out the worst
Now I know
This distance is a curse
Now I know
This life of emptiness
Now I know
Consistent nothingness
And I know
This bearable pain
I´ll never know
Will we ever meet again
I´ll never know
