Burn Me Out


Like a ghost..
I know you are there.
To my eyes...
Its seems unfair.

I can't find you.
With my hands.
Reach out for me?

I am weak.
I can't sleep.
I need you here.
Come to me?

I'm not scared.
I'm not crying.
Don't try to, think I'm lying.
Trust in me.
I'm a liar.
Burn me out.
In the fire.
Fill it up.
Gasoline.
Light the match.
Now I am free.
Now I am free.
Leave me be.
To rest in peace.

You ranaway.
You never planned to stay.
Why do I still not believe it?
Was this your personal secret?

My reflection.
Has disappeared.
No more smile.
Nothing here.

Hole where my heart used to be.
An explosion, blown away.
Never to be seen again.
You stole it, my friend...

I'm not scared.
I'm not crying.
Don't try to, think I'm lying.
Trust in me.
I'm a liar.
Burn me out.
In the fire.
Fill it up.
Gasoline.
Light the match.
Now I am free.
Now I am free.
Leave me be.
To rest in peace.

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,
