"It's getting late my old friend
It's time to go now
Say goodbye to all we had
And set these torn sails away
You broke me down to pieces
Like you always did
I'm ready to sleep now

This tomb of my heart
Turned happiness to dust
Days changed to lifetimes
Of promises and rust

All friends around me
From happiness to dust
And I'm ready to go now
Where I won't be lost
Happiness to dust

Have you come to take me home
Last rays of the evening sun?
With the dream, to where I belong
To the meadows of unsung songs
I'm scarred for lifetimes in here
Worn down in these battles
I'm ready to sleep now

I dragged all these shadows behind me
Until they grew into a part of me
But I never wanted it to happen
All the steps I took
I took them for the happiness of others
But they all burned me down
Burnt like an empty book

I unfolded my wings to their darkness
Stepped into all those rooms of shadows
Took those silver bullets to shield their hearts
But I'm too wounded now from these battles
Please let me fall into a sleep of beauty for a while

It's getting late my old friend
It's time to go now
Say goodbye to all we had
And set these torn sails away
Worn down in these battles
I'm ready to sleep now

This tomb of my heart
Turned happiness to dust
Days changed to lifetimes
Of promises from gold to rust

All friends around me
From happiness to dust
And I'm ready to go now
Where I won't be lost"
