This Place That's Filled With You

Darkness surrounds me as your image fades
Sweat sticks upon this fragile body as it thumps up
I wake up and find you're gone
Your scent lingers on
This place that's filled with you

Shadows mar the walls, I realize the sad truth
You were never there, you're just a phantom
A dream that haunts my soul
Why do I wake up?
This place that's filled with you

I never want to wake up
You're there nurturing me, telling me it's all right
Always supporting me, giving me the strength to fight
There's nothing I can't handle, your arms that hold me so tight
This place that's filled with you

I never want to let go
I can't get you out of my mind
Even if you are just a dream
I love you, you're a part of me
This place that's filled with you

Help me to keep it together
Show me the way through the darkest night
Are you an illusion? Is it just me?
Where did you come from? Why can't you stay?
This place that's filled with you

Someday I will wake up
I will find you were always there
You will come home, I will be waiting
There'll be no more living, with a broken heart
This place that's filled with you

This place that's filled with you
When will I find it
This place that's filled with you
