Fade to Black

My husband was listening to a song written by the rock band Metallica and this song In particular he said reminded him of me. I listened to the song and it was very poignant. Reminded me of the dark times at the depths of my depression, every word of the songs gave me a great sense of sadness yet it reminded me of how far I have come to help beat my mental health illnesses.

Metallica fade to black

I’ve inserted the link of the song which takes you to You tube and here are the lyrics:

Life it seems to fade away

Drifting further everyday

Getting lost within myself

Nothing matters no one else

I have lost the will to live

Simply nothing more to give

There is nothing more for me

Need the end to set me free

Things not what they used to be

Missing one inside of me

Deathly loss this can’t be real

Cannot stand this hell I feel

Emptiness is filling me

To the point of agony

Growing darkness taking dawn

I was me but now, he’s gone

No one but me can save myself, but its too late

Now I can’t think, think why I should even try

Yesterday seems as though it never existed

Death greets me warm, now I will just say goodbye
