Lyrics:

Lost, lost like a precious flame

The ashes burn on

The ghost of a love we had

Tries to hold on, tries to hold on

 

No communication

All systems are down

No new conversation

Never a sound, never a sound

 

What’s the point in holdin’ on

When the spirit is gone, holdin’ on

What’s the point in holdin’ on

When the spirit is gone

 

Cold, cold as the empty night

Deep in your eyes

I know there’s no truth, no light

Only your lies, only your lies

 

What’s the point in holdin’ on

When the spirit is gone, holdin’ on

What’s the point in holdin’ on

When the spirit is gone

 

The circle’s broken

The damage is done

The crystal lies

Smashed on the floor

 

Your presence has left me now

Your spirit has gone

The ghost of a love we had

Tries to hold on, tries to hold on

 

What’s the point in holdin’ on

When the spirit is gone, holdin’ on

What’s the point in holdin’ on

When the spirit is gone

 

The circle’s broken

The damage is done

So what’s the point in holdin’ on

 

What’s the point in holdin’ on

When the spirit is gone, holdin’ on

What’s the point in holdin’ on

When the spirit is gone

 

The circle’s broken

The damage is done

So what’s the point in holdin’ on
