Phoenix


Watch
As my wings burn
Incinerating my heart

Watch
As I demolish myself
Know you played a part

Watch
As I fall weakened
I fall to my knees

Watch
As my breathing slows
I throw away my heart's keys

Watch
As I fall asleep
Forever I'll stay

Watch
As my ashes scatter
Nothing is okay

Watch
Out of the ashes
I rise, stronger than you

Watch
This isn't the old me
Nor is it the new

Watch
As I walk away
My wings catched aflame

Watch
As my wings spread
Proud of who I became

Watch
As my wings turn to ashes
Disappearing once more

Watch
As my heart leaves me
Falling to the floor

Watch
As I will be stronger
The next time I rise

Watch
As I will be wiser
My soul never dies
