Cheron L'Estrange ~ Burnt Out

I don’t feel so strong
I’m all out of fire
Where did we go wrong?

Lately I just drift along
I have lost all my desire
I don’t feel so strong

Can’t believe what you’re saying
-Not that you’re a liar
Where did we go wrong?

Can’t you see I’m trying?
Now things are getting dire
I don’t feel so strong

Late dark hours spent praying
Couldn’t love have been easier?
Where did we go wrong?

Was this all for nothing?
All I know is you still matter
I don’t feel so strong
Where did we go wrong?
