how do i go on feeling unknown?
after so many years, i find myself here on my own
and i'm trying to feel something i used to feel
so somehow i can know that i'm still real

there's no way to fall back to innocent sleep
my eyes are wide open to the secrets that we couldn't keep
and i'm trying to heal from all the time that i couldn't feel
anything but numbness and unreal

and i'm trying to remember who i was
before us

but time just makes memories of days
it's so long ago now, i hardly remember the way
before us
