now the world (sing the sorrow version) lyrics – a.f.i

summer i painted, a scene, that lit the stars for me,
said, “i can erase it for you dear.”
that summer created, those words, that came to life in three,
they were denied by you.
summer i laid down, below, the glitter adorned night,
and silently sparkled, my own way.
summer i laid down, by you, and shared my frail light,
you gave the dark to me.
(you gave the dark to me)

i looked inside,
(i)
to find,
(wanted)
the one i sent away.
(this excoriation)
i nearly froze, when i stepped inside,
(i)
to find,
(thrive on)
the flowers turned to grey.
(this self mutilation)
i closed my eyes, and kissed them one last time.

oh.

summer a morning, so pale, alone when they found me,
as i remained sleeping, i heard them say,
“this summer created, a boy, of abject misery.”
he was designed by you.
(he was designed by you)

i looked inside,
(i)
to find,
(wanted)
the one i sent away.
(this excoriation)
i nearly froze, when i stepped inside,
(i)
to find,
(thrive on)
the flowers turned to grey.
(this self mutilation)
i closed my eyes, and kissed them…

so like a lost child,
i will hide.
(now the world)
and like lost lie,
i will find.
(now the world)

find a way to return to the ones who made me,
cover your eyes and we’ll die together.

will you cry for me,
will you cry for me,
or will you cry with me?

will you cry for me,
will you cry for me,
or will you cry with me?

will you cry for me,
(i’ve been a lonely one)
will you cry for me,
(i’ve had this whole world)
or will you die with me?
(drained from me)

will you cry for me,
(am i the only one)
will you cry for me,
(i’ve had this world)
or will you die with me?
(drained from me, drained from me.)

summer i painted, a scene, that lit the stars for me,
said, “i can erase it for you dear.”
