All That I'm Living For
by Evanescence



All that I'm living for
All that I'm dying for
All that I can't ignore
Alone at night

I can feel the night beginning
Separate me from the living
Understanding me
After all I've seen

Piecing every thought together
Find the words that make me better
If I only knew how to pull myself apart

[Chorus]
All that I'm living for
All that I'm dying for
All that I can't ignore, alone at night
All that I'm wanted for
Although I wanted more
Lock the last open door
My ghosts are gaining on me

I believe that dreams are sacred
Take my darkest fears and play them
Like a lullaby, like a reason why
Like a play of my obsessions
Make me understand the lesson
So I'll find myself, so I wont be lost again

[Chorus]

Guess I thought I'd have to change the world
To make you see me
To be the one
I could have run forever
But how far would I have come
without mourning your love

[Chorus]

Should it hurt to love you?
Should I feel like I do?
Should I lock the last open door?
My ghosts are gaining on me
