Cold Black Mile (Hotel Version) Lyrics

This one went deep, these wounds will last
This one’s more than just the past
This one’s still here, it fills up these rooms
Everything I see around here reminds me of you
It’s a war I fight every night
Out here alone on the cold black mile

It’s in the grey of the mornin’, it’s in the sound of her name
It’s in the walls of that home where we lived where the love just couldn’t stay
And this might be the hardest thing I’ll ever have to survive
It’s time to walk down the cold black mile

I was on the front lines, yeah, you watched me retreat
But when I came back busted and broken, I was still standin’ on my feet
No, I’m not on my knees anymore, I ain’t prayin’ for some open door
Waitin’ for somethin’ we both know just don’t belong here anymore
I’ll take the pain, feel it grow inside
It’s all I can carry on the cold black mile

It’s in the pain without answers, it’s in the things you can’t change
It’s in the callin’ it forever, but then the words just blow away
And I might die a thousand times, but I know I can survive
Just keep on pushin’ down the cold black mile

It might’ve taken everything, but it gave me back my life
Mornin’ is breakin’ now on the cold black mile

Share your love
