You’re The Reason I Pray

You are my demon in the shadows
You are my devil lurking in the rafters
Watching over my shoulder everyday
You are the reason I pray…

Why haven’t you gone?
With all your malicious antagonism
With all your actions towards me
To seize my heart,
Only to break me down
Lead me to water
Yet not let me drink
What is left of your cold heart?
Waiting is the hardest thing to do
Sifting through the nightmares of me and you
Scared you’ll show up again
With the bitterness you bring
A shadow over my soul
Afraid you haven’t let me go

Now I feel as though I’ve died
Fill an ocean with tears I’ve cried
Why me! Why me!
Why couldn’t I see?

Double-check the doors
Barricade the window seals
Have you really gone?
Forever, for a week, for how long
When shall I sleep with ease?
I loved you once
Even with all the pain you brought
Even as you made me distraught
Even as you made me your whore
I was in for the long haul, evermore
Knowing one day I might die…
Knowing one day I will die…
Thought I could heal you
Make you whole inside

Now I feel as though I’ve died
Fill an ocean with tears I’ve cried
Why me! Why me!
Why couldn’t I see?

You are my demon in the shadows
You are my devil lurking in the rafters
Watching over my shoulder everyday
You are the reason I pray…
