Don't Go Away

I was walking in the garden of your heart
All the feelings deep inside tearing me apart
So Don't you ever say, That I am not alone
In this broken down place Now I can never go home.
I was walking in the shadow of your dreams
Your words so detatched from mine,
Is it really like it seems
Don't you hate me because I love you
If I lost you I would die
I would never want it to be that way so please don't go away
Don't go away...Don't go Away
I was walking in a dark and empty space
All the memories of your smile I'm trying to erase
And don't you ever say that you know all my fears
In this broken down place where I'm alone for all the years
Yes I'm alone for all these years
Don't go Away...Don't go Away
