Snuffing Out The Light

If you go now... please light the candle... I need to find my way in this icy, unsympathetic night…

If I reach out to you now, do not turn for me, look ahead and walk away like you do and take flight…

When there is nothing left to say… you should know enough to know you can't make this right.

If I break down … let me fade away, don't stop and wrap your arms around me to tell me everything is going to be alright…

If you see tears fall from dead eyes, don't kiss them away… because you could not stand to fight…

Oh how cruelly kind, you say I can rely on you, trust you with all my might

Last but not least do not tell me you still love me… because you are the one who snuffed out my light.
