Crestfallen

This song is by Anathema and appears on the EP The Crestfallen EP (1992) and on the album Falling Deeper (2011).

I cry a tear of hope but it is lost in helplessness
The darkness eats away at the very embers of my soul
For the deepest love I had has dissolved before my eyes
My sorrow is bleak, I beg for deliverance

Lord, in your mercy, hear my prayer

All emotion is consumed by an inner silence
All grief is unassuaged by disconsulate tears
I want for nothing, I live for nothing
I am waiting to die but I am afraid of dying

Lord, in your mercy, hear my prayer

Crestfallen emotion
Wallowing in guilt
And drowning for evermore

Falling deeper into fear
My inner self is now
A sleeper of stone

Help me.
