I see movement in the shadows
I see flickers of light
I see your face just next to me
It always gives me a fright

I forget that you’re gone
I forget you’re not here
It’s as though you never left
I can feel you near

When alone in the car
The sadness is at its worst
I want to let it engulf me
The relief of allowing it to burst

I want to hit the gas
I want to drive right off the edge
Put the pedal to the metal
Quit teetering on the ledge

I want it to be over
I want the pain to stop
I want to feel nothing
I want my body to drop

Down, down to the depths
Where I barely survive
Further, deeper, darker
Maybe I’ll get there, if I just drive
