Christmas Lights (Shades Apart)

All she was a parent's prize Pushed to the edge by childhood lies No escape when it's that far gone Just hope and pray you have it all wrong Somehow it ain't the same but nothing's changed Christmas lights sparkles in the silence Torture me with joyful cries No escaping that it's gone forever To a quiet place where someone cares for her I don't feel like coming home This don't feel like coming home All I have is a photograph The words you left and a frozen laugh Frozen in time where you will always be An empty space walking next to me
