crestfallen lyrics – anathema

i cry a tear of hope but it is lost in helplessness
the darkness eats away at the very embers of my soul
for the deepest love i had has dissolved before my eyes
my sorrow is bleak, i beg for deliverance

lord, in your mercy, hear my prayer

all emotion is consumed by an inner silence
all grief is un*ssuaged by disconsulate tears
i want for nothing, i live for nothing
i am waiting to die but i am afraid of dying

lord, in your mercy, hear my prayer

crestfallen emotion
wallowing in guilt
drowning for evermore

falling deeper into fear
my inner self is now
a sleeper of stone

help me
