<ballad>
Standing in the spotlight fading
My world's not turning
the clocks not ticking
I wish that sometimes,
I could spread my wings and fly

<chorus>
There was nothing to gain from your lies
but There was something that we once had inside
so Spread the fire to bring out the rage
and release the flame to burn out the pain

<break>
They're out to get you
The words you kept inside
They make or break you
You fight to stay alive

<jazz>
Standing on the edge of midnight
time to play the fool
Morpheus is waiting for me
To find the path to truth

Questions keep my mind awake
To look behind the lie
Try to keep my thoughts away
from the pain within your eyes

<solos>

<Verse>
I tried to find the moment we left it behind
I tried to find the second we lost the way (but then I was blind)
Someday we may find the day, and if the story's true
the fairy tale that paved the way will lead me back to you

<chorus>
There was nothing to gain from your lies
now I dont see anything that once was inside
Spread the fire to bring out the flame
Find the desire to walk strong again

For hell or nothing we can stay alive
Walk taller everyday, you know that you tried
We found forever, and went the other way
That time together, belongs to history

They're out to get you
The words you kept inside
They make or break you
You fight to stay alive

This is well-written. That's about all I can say about it. There are parts that I don't particularly like, but that might just be me. Some parts seem like stuff I've heard before. It's good, I'd just try to make it a little more yours if you know what I mean. And take out the line about Morpheus. No disrespect, but it's stupid. The rest of the song is fine. Just needs a little more originality.

Crit mine if you have time.
