33. I Can't Stay (a song)

I bleed inside
In my heart and soul
Where you can't see
I scream inside
In the darkest part of my mind
Where you can't hear me

I can't stay
My heart is an open target
And my mind falls apart
I can't stay
Where the monsters know to find me
And the ghosts of a dark past 
scream my name

You hurt me without meaning harm
And from your arms I must flee
I can only trust my own embrace
Darkness has touched my mind
And death shouts my name
My life has become an endless race

I can't stay
My heart is an open target
And my mind falls apart
I can't stay
Where the monsters know to find me
And the ghosts of a dark past 
scream my name

I'm sorry that I must go
And truthfully I'm not
I shiver inside my own home
The light is outside
Why am I in?

Watch me as I stand in the doorway
The sunset silhouettes my parting wave
I know you hate this goodbye
But I just can't stay
So farewell is what I must say
