girl with needle

Invisible pain, a stain
Of love on my heart
First heartfelt smile
First time you held my hand
Said I was your life

It hurts too much
Nothing can help
You were a lie, a ghost, a dream
Walking in a silent day
Hearing hearts beating
We promised to die
Together, remember?

Did you hear about the girl
Who cries every night?
Did you hear she lost her mind?

Since you left
I live with no aim
Remember our plans for a happier life
Our hopeful future
I try to find a way
With loneliness
Since you left
