Love Is Illness

This song is by Atreyu and appears on the EP Visions (1999).

My soul, it screams for you
Can you not hear it?
My arms reach out for you
Why can't you take them?
My heart burns only for you
Can you extinguish it?
I love only to be loved by you
Why can't you love me too?

I long only to be held and care for
Why can't it be?
Am I to die alone and bitter?
What the hell is wrong with me?
My face is blackened and my eyes are sewn shut
With fear and sorrow
I no longer wish to love anything
Just cut the heart right out of me

Sometimes I choke on all the false love
That infects me
Sometimes everything is not enough to cure
The sickness inside of me (x2)

I did it all, cried black tears for you
Why can't you see?
Like a vampire biting my heart
Suck the love right out of me
Don't even care as my blood stains the floor
Cannot be cleaned
You cut me out and tore me through
Six feet unders the place for me

I feel it all as it sickens me
It feels like I'm dying inside
Because of the love I gave that can't be returned
My longing for instability is a personality flaw

I trust you with respect
And you tear me down (x4)

Love is Illness (starts over from beginning)
