LyricsEdit

I've been left out alone like a damn criminal
I've been praying for help cause I can't take it all
I'm not done, it's not over

Now I'm fighting this war since the day of the fall
And I'm desperately holding on to it all
But I'm lost, I'm so damn lost

Oh, I wish it was over
And I wish you were here
Still I'm hoping that somehow

Cause your soul is on fire
A shot in the dark
What did they aim for when they missed your heart?
I breathe underwater
It's all in my hands
But what can I do?
Don't let it fall apart
A shot in the dark
A shot in the dark

In the blink of an eye I can see through your eyes
As I'm lying awake I'm still hearing the cries
And it hurts, hurts me so bad

And I'm wondering why I still fight in this life
Cause I've lost all my faith in this damned bitter strife
And it's sad, it's so damn sad

Oh, I wish it was over
And I wish you were here
Still I'm hoping that somehow

Cause your soul is on fire
A shot in the dark
What did they aim for when they missed your heart?
I breathe underwater
It's all in my hands
But what can I do?
Don't let it fall apart
A shot in the dark
A shot in the dark
A shot in the dark
A shot in the dark
A shot in the dark

I feel you are fading away
I feel you are fading away
I feel you are fading away
I feel you are fading away

Cause your soul is on fire
A shot in the dark
What did they aim for when they missed your heart?
I breathe underwater
It's all in my hands
But what can I do?
Don't let it fall apart

Oh, your soul is on fire
A shot in the dark
What did they aim for when they missed your heart?
I breathe underwater
It's all in my hands
But what can I do?
Don't let it fall apart
A shot in the dark
A shot in the dark
A shot in the dark
A shot in the dark
A shot in the dark
