Lyrics

Fading Back

As I step out of my cloud
I realize all of the damage I have done now
I don't know who I was
I don't know who I am now either, but I'm getting
Closer to where I want to be
Closer to who I want to be

Fading back
To the self I used to know and I pray
That it's not too late to put it back right again
I don't know
How I lost sight of the things I used to love
But I know I'm fading back in slowly

As I shake the cobwebs loose
I realize all the things I put you through
I was lost inside myself
I lost the things that I had guarded closely
You never feel so blind
As when you can't trust your own mind

Fading back
To the self I used to know and I pray
That it's not too late to put it back right again
I don't know
How I lost sight of the things I used to love
But I know I'm fading back in slowly


Fading back
To the self I used to know and I pray
That it's not too late to put it back right again
I don't know
How I lost sight of the things I used to love
But I know I'm fading back in slowly

K. Fahy (Actual Species, ASCAP)
