Doe Paoro - Fading Into Black



A thick haze hangs over yesterday
We sleepwalk through a maze
Of bruised faith
And in the disbelief, we hope to find relief
But lose days
Against my best defenses, I can't accept
It's senseless

[Pre-Chorus:]
Standing alone in the mirror
Wondering what went wrong
Could it have been any clearer?
We're still hanging on

[Chorus:]
I'll take an hourglass
And I'll shake it, shake it, shake it, shake it
But we can't turn it back
I will break it, break it, break it, break it
But there's no more sand
So we're fading, fading, fading
Fading into black
Into black, into black, into black

Now we drain, the color wastes away
We're left to bathe
In dark rain
It's like the night turned out the lights
And I forgot to wave[?]
All goodbyes are better
When they are not forever
[Pre-Chorus:]
Standing alone in the mirror
Wondering what went wrong
Could it have been any clearer?
We're still hanging on

[Chorus:]
I'll take an hourglass
And I'll shake it, shake it, shake it, shake it
But we can't turn it back
I will break it, break it, break it, break it
But there's no more sand
So we're fading, fading, fading
Fading

[Bridge:]
In denial or a dream, it could be either or
Lately I've been so unsure
In denial or a dream, a broken word you swore[?]
Only something time can cure
In denial or a dream, it could be either or
Lately I've been so unsure
In denial or a dream, a broken word you swore[?]
Only something time can cure

[Chorus:]
I'll take an hourglass
And I'll shake it, shake it, shake it, shake it
But we can't turn it back
I will break it, break it, break it, break it
But there's no more sand
So we're fading, fading, fading
Fading into black
Into black, into black, into black
Into black
