Dull Ache

(Ray/Khamlichi)

 

Thought I knew myself,  I thought I knew pain

Until that day when everything changed

Moments went by before I realised

The voice that I heard screaming was mine

 

And it ripped through me and tore at my defenses

Mind can't protect me, No way to disconnect it

Why does he say that, I won't believe that you're gone

 

Without warning while we were sleeping 

Now I lay healing  in the room we used to dream in 

Anger gone, Almost gone

But inside this silence I'm reminded of you by this dull ache

This dull ache 

 

If someone had asked me if I would survive this

Honestly I'd rather go first. 

Couldn't fathom a life without

The voice that I keep hearing is not mine

 

You used to tell me "let go of my defenses"

'Coz I was frightened of a vulnerable connection

You don't have to worry, my fear of hurting is gone

 

Without warning while we were sleeping 

Now I lay healing  in the room we used to dream in 

Anger gone, Almost gone

But inside this silence I'm reminded of you by this dull ache

This dull ache 

 

But I know that this dull ache inside me it stays to remind me

I know that this dull ache inside me it stays to remind me...how deep I can love. 

 

Without warning while we were sleeping 

Now I lay healing  in the room we used to dream in 

Anger gone, Almost gone

But inside this silence I'm reminded of you by this dull ache

This dull ache
