Shot In The Dark

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 (2X)

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 (5X)

I feel you fading away (4X)

'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 (5X)
