Lyric

How many times I couldn't sleep ‘cause I saw you dying in my dreams
How many times you lied to me raised my hopes and I believed
So many times you went away even though you promised me to stay you always said soon it’ll be ok but till today nothing's changed

Now I know it's too late you lost your soul you will never change your strength of mind wasn't strong enough you chose this life instead of love
Now I know it's too late you lost your soul you will never change your strength of mind wasn't strong enough you chose this life instead of us

How many times they said I'm a fool but as your child I had faith in you I always thought one day we'll reunite leaving hell reaching paradise but now I know it was just a dream, now I know it will never be beautiful completed family you'll just exist in my dreams

And chorus
