Can’t Reach You Now

I think of how it used to be
You understood every part of me
You saw the places no one knew
Without a word you passed on through
You showed me the whole world
In your eyes
You taught me how to breathe

Now we sit in silence in the rain
I’ve made you angry once again (Your eyes stare right through me)
Just want to tell you how much I’ve cried
But you’d only ask me why (You don’t seem to know me)
Why can’t you see me how you used to? Oh, let me find you! (I didn’t mean to do what I did)
I didn’t want those things to hurt you (I couldn’t help those things I did)
I just can’t reach you now
No, no!
I just can’t reach you now

The ground is opening
My world is falling
Into the blackness below
I cannot fight this
I can’t deny this
I know I have to let go
You’re slipping from me
I can’t hold on now
There’s a line being drawn
I can’t reach you
I’ll never reach you
You’re too distant
I can’t! I can’t reach you!

I know you wanted me to shine
You willed me, you gave me life
Gave me purpose, somewhere to go
My stagnant heart you urged to flow
You coloured my whole mind
With your soul
You took away my fear

Can’t believe that all that is gone
Now there are ashes where stars once shone (Your eyes stare right through me)
Now we pass like strangers in a storm
Empty valleys which once were warm (You don’t seem to know me)
Why can’t you see me how you used to? Oh, let me find you! (You’ve closed all the doors to me now)
I didn’t want those things to hurt you (And you’ve given me no key to turn)
I just can’t reach you now
No, no!
I just can’t reach you now

The ground is opening
My world is falling
Into the blackness below
I cannot fight this
I can’t deny this
I know I have to let go
You’re slipping from me
I can’t hold on now
There’s a line being drawn
I can’t reach you
I’ll never reach you
You’re too distant
I can’t! I can’t reach you!

The ground is opening
My world is falling
Into the blackness below
I cannot fight this
I can’t deny this
I know I have to let go
You’re slipping from me
I can’t hold on now
There’s a line being drawn
I can’t reach you
I’ll never reach you
You’re too distant
I can’t!

The ground is opening
My world is falling
Into the blackness below
I cannot fight this
I can’t deny this
I know I have to let go
You’re slipping from me (I cannot reach you!)
I can’t hold on now (I cannot reach you!)
There’s a line being drawn (I cannot reach you!)
I can’t reach you
I’ll never reach you
You’re too distant
I can’t!

The ground is opening
My world is falling
Into the blackness below
I cannot fight this
I can’t deny this
I know I have to let go
You’re slipping from me
I can’t hold on now
There’s a line being drawn
I can’t reach you
I’ll never reach you
You’re too distant
I can’t!
