These are the first lyrics I've thought of. They might not be great but give me some feedback on them. I haven't put in any instruments to it yet. (I already posted this but it got closed due to the title)

When will I realize you're never coming home?
I've waited for a glimpse of us together
It never came even in a dream
I've never felt so low and faded
Everything we posessed was an illusion

If you were here your light would break the darkness
This darkness ripping up my soul

Do you remember us, what we had?
But what did we have?
Did you mean what the actions showed?
All I want is to wake up to your face
Just to see the black sky that was your eyes

If you were here you'd be by my side
Forever glued to me

The voices sprout up and fill my ears
As my heart tears apart I beg for you
I know that I hurt you
But right now I need you to smile
If you stay here I'll never let go

If you were here I'd never turn my eyes
You make me hang on inside

I'm left with nothing but memories
Were the memories true?
Not even time can tell
What do I do, where should I go, who can I love?
When you're not here close to me

If you were here I'd have all the answers
My heart would rise from the ash

It seems you'll never be here
I'll still think of you...will you too?
I'm just a ghost looking for a place
And there was my place...but where?
So far away from you...but who?

If you were here I'd know who we are
If you were here you'd be at my side
If you were here I'd have all the answers
If you were here your light would break the darkness
If you were here I'd never turn my eyes
If you were here this would be worth my time
But are you here?

I can tell this is very personal and comes from the heart. Do you have a melody for the words yet?

My one critique is the line "forever chained to mine"
Chained doesn't really have the connotation I think you are going for.
Since "side" and "mine" aren't very strong rhymes anyway, I think you could change the line to something that doesn't rhyme at all, but fits the mood better. Such as "forever tied to me"

Thanks for sharing!
