Burning World


Whats left of this world I built for you
since you left its been torn in two
now its empty desolit like my heart
we were supposed to be forever never to part
how could you leave
the way you swore you never would
I built you this place now its no good
saftey is what you wanted so it was saftey i gave
you wanted and escape from the place you were saved
we were broken and empty only a shell
rescue me from this place I am sure is hell
lets run away together never to return
we can turn around and watch our world burn
