Suicidal Tendencies

Like a wasting heart disease
Suicidal tendencies
Something's got a hold on me
It strangles so I can't be free
A quiet sadness of the soul
deep inside me there's a hole
That I've tried to fill too long
and I've tried to be so strong
but I can't do it alone
I hope the future is unknown
because the only fate I see
is that there's no one there for me
Please won't someone take a chance
Come and join me in this dance
Be with me and I will do
All I need to save Your Soul too

Stephen Fitch
