Once Possessed A Strength Which Has Now Left Me

from by In Tongues

lyrics

A gradual realisation of all colour drained from living.
A fog drenching all emotion in a blanket of detachment.

Once possessed a strength, now left me
and led me to wallow in all failure.
Searching for a light once burning
left to die, over years, untended.

Fallen far into the depths
of such boredom and loneliness.
A creeping tide of isolation and pathetic attempts at being social.

But all of my time is spent wishing for the smiles
of my friends.
In their company, maybe, I can breathe
and convince myself to start again.
Maybe I could start again.

A yearning for what was stops me building a life for the future.
Imprisoned by nostalgia but at what cost?

Right in front of me all along was a freedom from feeling so forsaken.
