   Am                   C               G                  Em1. 
Life it seems will fade away,   drifting further every day.
2. Things not what they used to be,     missing one inside of me.   
Am                      C               G                  Em
                                                                        
1. Getting lost within myself,          nothing matters, no one else.  
2. Deathly lost, this can't be real,    cannot stand this hell I feel.
W/Rhy. Fig 2 (1st 7 bars only)

   Am                   C               G                  Em
1. I have lost the will to live,        simply nothing more to give.
2. Emptiness is filling me,             to the point of agony.
   Am                   C               G
1. There is nothing more for me.        Need the end to set__
2. Growing darkness taking dawn,        I was me, but now__  w/Fill 3
