lyrics

I wish you were here
And not far away
Are you coming back ever again?
When I got close
You turned and ran
Are you dying alone as fast as you can?

Oh my father don't chastise me
For what I've done
Oh my father don't baptise me
In a lake of fire
Oh my father don't let me be
All by myself
Oh my father don't leave me please
I need you now
I need you now

I should've known
You'd fall asleep
And leave me awake with no company
You try to escape
Into a dream
Like you just can't stand reality

Well that's it now
Did I hear you say?

Oh my father don't chastise me
For what I've done
Oh my father don't baptise me
In a lake of fire
Oh my father don't let me be
All by myself
Oh my father don't leave me please
I need you now
I need you now
I need you now

You left me here
Just me and my pain
But I know someday I'll try it again
