sleep alone

pass me up, look me over, let me go
deny my love and send me away
continue this madness that slowly eats you
give up one who would love you
sleep alone

cry alone without wiping your tears
show me the lines on your face
live a life – half-living – dying every day
wash yourself of every trace of me
sleep alone

keep yourself in pride, hope, sadness
keep yourself locked apart
place me outside and never let me in
have a life, a love, a mind
have my life, my love, my mind

give it all up
let me go
