Verse 1:
"Take me away from here"
She whispered in his chest
A broken heart inside
From when she knew him best
"It's not the end," he said
"Only whispers in the dark."
And they stood silently

She sighed and said "We can't do this alone
For we are drowning here in this home, in this home
Let's run away before our consciences get the best of us."

Verse 2:
"Take me away from here"
He looked down at the stone
A stone of memories
From a man that he had known
He only heard the wind
As it wistfully replied
And he fell to his knees

And softly cried "I can't do this alone
For I am sinking deep in this hole, in this hole
I lie awake every night as my guilt gets the best of me."

Verse 3:
"Take me away from here"
She looked down at her hands
Her eyes were filled with tears
And dreams no one could understand
She stood on her two feet
As she cast the knife aside
And packed her things and left

After she said "I must do this alone
I need to face these fears on my own, on my own
And when the day is renewed I will give it the best of me."
