Verse 1:
I sit here thinkin' bout the rest of my life
And how it will unfold without you
A lonely heart that's beatin' in a desolate soul
All the love has spilled and bled through
Now I'm tryin' find the words to say to make this torture go away
But silence deafens me in the night
Still I.....

Chorus:
Hold on to the light
Your empty words and promises they bury me alive
Still I.....Keep fighting to survive
I know the wrong you've done to me will never turn out right
As the fire dies

Verse 2:
I listen to the rain as it explodes from the sky
And makes its long decent to the ground
It's quiet as it falls down from the heavens above
But once it hits the earth its makes sound
And it reminds me of the love we shared and how I thought you really cared
But then your storm just poured over me
Still I.....

Chorus:
Hold on to the light
Your empty words and promises they bury me alive
Still I.....Keep fighting to survive
I know the wrong you've done to me will never turn out right
As the fire dies

Bridge:
You've cut right through me
And itís a cut so deep it's piercin' the bone
My wounds may heal but the memory yields
And now it's me who's left here alone

Verse 3:
A blaze of hope and glory that has gone up in smoke
A candle that has shone its last light
A flame that's been extinguished from the passions of my heart
The cold and bitter darkness of night
It's all these things you've brought into my world
A tragic tale as love unfurls
Our song has been ended by you
But Still I.....

Chorus:
Hold on to the light
Your empty words and promises they bury me alive
Still I.....Keep fighting to survive
I know the wrong you've done to me will never turn out right
As the fire dies
