All I hear is silence.
And it feels like ages since I’ve felt
Something other than pain and despair
Since the day that you left and then night fell.
All I see is the absence
Of you in the places where you always were
Doing things so awesome, so effortless
But now when I look, there’s no one there.
All I feel is nothing.
Nothing but pain and sorrow and some regret
For all the things we did, didn’t do and things we said
And now there’s really nothing left.
All there is now is emptiness.
My heart’s empty and in your heart,
There’s nothing left.
No love, no laughter; nothingness.
All there is now is nothingness.
This is the end.
