Lyrics

Don't let go
I'm tired of holding to
What is what I used to be
And don't let up
'Cause I can't live without you
It's not as easy as it seems

So what if we both go
Into the night below
Will no one ever know my name?

Solitude
Is heavy as a lead weight
And I don't know if I can breathe
The air is thin
The wind is howling at me
It's not as easy as it seems

So what if we both go
Into the night below
Will no one ever know my name?
