Lyrics

Dust Settles Original Song By: Suzanne Gladstone
(Intro/Verse 1)
I want to be with someone who lights up when they see me
I’m feeling weak / You’re taking all the air I am breathing
Why do I continue putting up with this mess?
Am I caught up in another one of life’s special tests?
I’m sick of this test / So sick of this life
I need something more / Where is Mr. Right?
Where is Mr. Right?

(Chorus)
I can’t stand this cold bed
Or these nasty thoughts filled with dread
Can’t sleep at night wondering if everything is gonna be alright
I’m so confused, so used / What could’ve I have done differently?
Yelling screaming all the time / Such heavy air that I can't breathe
As the dust settles / You’re gone
As the dust settles / You’re gone
As the dust settles / You’re gone
As the dust settles / You’re gone
As the dust settles / You’re gone

(Verse 2)
Pointed out all the mistakes that I made
Saying you love me but then push me away
Your prideful distortion left me to cry
Nasty thoughts in my head left me crucified
Always make me feel like I’m two inches tall
But when you call my name / I’m at your beckon call
I want to be your candle and you can be my flame
But all I seem to do is wait around for you to change

(Pre-Chorus)
Being with you is like being alone
As the dust-settles / I realize you’re gone
A fear of awakening has turned me to stone
I’ve been conquered / You’ve taken my throne
(Chorus)
I can’t stand this cold bed
or these nasty thoughts filled with dread
Can’t sleep at night wondering if everything is gonna be alright
I’m so confused, so used / What could’ve I have done differently?
Yelling screaming all the time / Such heavy air that I can't breathe
(Chorus-Hook)
As the dust settles / You’re gone
As the dust settles / You’re gone
As the dust settles / You’re gone
As the dust settles / You’re gone
As the dust settles / You’re gone

(Bridge)
There’s no devotion on your side / It’s like your blind
Too late to change / Can't go back in time / Too late to hit rewind
You make me wait / Make me stay / Laugh at me / Call me names
But now my floodlights shining on your lies
And I won’t take all your alibis
Do you like seeing me in pain? Do you like driving me insane?
(Chorus-Hook)
As the dust settles / You’re gone
As the dust settles / You’re gone
As the dust settles / You’re gone
As the dust settles / You’re gone
As the dust settles / You’re gone
As the dust settles / You’re gone

(Pre-Chorus)
Being with you is like being alone
As the dust-settles, I realize you’re gone
A fear of awakening has turned me to stone
I’ve been conquered / You’ve taken my throne

(Verse 3)
Why do I let you control my heart?
All you do is take it and break it apart
Can’t believe you lied to my face
All those memories now gone to waste
You told me you loved me / But your eyes couldn’t lie
Your prideful distortion left me to cry
Living too long a fantasy zone
Extraterrestrial / Planet-unknown
(Chorus-Hook)
As the dust settles / You’re gone
As the dust settles / You’re gone
As the dust settles / You’re gone
As the dust settles / You’re gone
As the dust settles / You’re gone
As the dust settles / You’re gone

(Rap/End)
I tried to lie in the mirror / So I could hide all my tears
Thought maybe it’s what I deserve
To be unseen / To be unheard / How absurd
How’d these lines get so blurred?
I’ve been through this so many times
My love is gone / My tears have dried
Won’t suffer anymore
Think it's time to say goodbye
