Don't Let My Ink Fade

by Cale Hawkins

lyrics

I'm
sitting on the edge
of an unexpected moment
an outlier
a shiver in time

A twist of irony
In this biography
Don't know where I'll be
In the next line

Stay with me in this
place
I don't want to be
erased
Please don't let my ink
fade

I grew up inside my head
It was safer to escape there
From hostile worlds
From troubling times

Now I'm left to face
a mass of empty space
Have I wound up
on the last page?

Get me out of this
place
I don't want to be
erased
Please don't let my ink
fade

Oh, remain
I hope you stay
I hope you stay
Remain
A shot away
I hope you stay

Stay with me in this
place
I don't want to be
erased
Stay with me in this
place
Read me 'til the last
page
