Holding On

Desolate landscape; broken glass, as far as the eye can see
It’s a feeling I can’t seem to shake, without you next to me
Nothing moving forward, no point in turning back
Scratched  beyond the surface, it all near fades to black

Hot black tar on the road below; a cold sweat takes the wheel
White light, searing pain. What else is there to feel?

Holding on for my life, the trains not slowing down
Holding on for my life, feel like I’m going to drown
Heaven sent you to take my breath away
But the devil was breathing fire
Too blind to see the real you, tangled in sweet desire

Lonely nights and  ghost filled days cling to the life inside
The devils a constant companion now, ripping at my sides
Ain’t no angels to stop the rush, to drink the tears I’ve cried
To take the steps back, to put things right,  to undo all the lies
Don’t love you anymore but the hole is gaping wide
There ain’t no bottom and there ain’t no top, it’s a sordid freak show ride

Holding on for my life, the trains not slowing down
Holding on for my life, feel like I’m going to drown
Heaven sent you to take my breath away
But the devil was breathing fire
Too blind to see the real you, tangled in sweet desire

Lift the bonds of insanity, break these ghoulish chains
You haven’t seen the last of me. I will rise from these gritty remains
