If I said I was a painter

Would you love and comfort me?
If I said I was a soldier
Would you cry a tear for me?

If I said I was a poet
Would you share your hopes with me?
If I said I was a dreamer
Would you share your life with me?

So it all comes back to haunt me
Like a song that sings your name
And it burns here to remind me
That it all comes back as pain

  I watched them float in empty silence

    As it all fell down
    As it all fell down
    It was over
    It was over... then
