    Alone- By sorrow

    I fell...<br>
    I saved you<br>
    I hurt...<br>
    I healed you<br>
    <br>
    Corus<br>
    When i fell you coulnt catch me<br>
    When i hurt you coulnt love me...<br>
    You left me alone...<br>
    Fighting to survive...<br>
    I just let go...<br>
    <br>
    So you just leave me here...<br>
    All alone...<br>
    You think I can fight... a.... little... longer!, <br>
    But I'm falling faster,<br>
    Falling farther...<br>
    I'm falling all alone...<br>
    <br>
    Corus...
