silhouette of a dancer lyrics – delain

my skin still burns
at all the places you’ve touched
so aware
you leave no place for hiding
not last night
not this time

i close my eyes, so the world can’t see me
and draw the silhouette of a dancer in my head
i can’t look through your eyes
but my mind betrays mine
should i starve unmarked?
or confess to my blindness

my eyes still hurt
fighting chasing lights
as they form
silhouettes behind me
let them go
this time

waiting for a change
i can’t fight these chains
every day,
i bleed to avoid the pain
every day
i fade a little more
