in designing a requiem lyrics – above this fire

when everything came crashing down the emptiness tore me up from the inside out the silence broke me down to nothing through the ashes of this year i saw you buried and laid to rest it was so hard to hold back all my tears i never thought i’d see the day that i would have to mourn a fallen friend so i stand in disbelief,
unwilling to accept i try to understand how a world consumed by darkness it’s a tragedy that it lost one of it’s brightest lights in a time when things fall apart so quick i still hold on to the pieces and keep you alive this requiem is all i haveto show that you are in my heart to show that you are still with me in a time when things fall apart so quick and mourning became a constant it’s up to me to make sure that you arent’ forgotten from this day forward i will not relive the days of grieving release your ghost and let it finally rest your imprint still stays with me i held on to your words they were a guide when the storm was right on top of me the days behind me are broken your spirit still lives on inside through it all i will remember i will remember you i will carry on for you
