about

Although the lyric appears to be a relationship story, it’s really about my relationship with myself. At the time Speed Of Life was on hiatus and I was playing guitar in two other bands that were spearheaded by others. I missed working on my own creative process and felt the connection to my art being lost. The song was a loud calling from within for me to gain a stronger commitment to my music, my voice and my art. It remains one of my favorite songs I’ve written and feels very personal to me every time I sing it.

lyrics

Fading
(Zay)

Taken to your eyes, you reach me inside
Taken by surprise, I feel that I should hide
If I gave you my heart and I gave you my soul
Would you come to me, would take me home

So if I'm your Island
won't you breathe into me

Don't you think of leaving me now
I need you by my side
Your fading in and out of my life

Weakened to your knees, you fall down and cry
Welcome to your greed, you reach up for the sky
Just to hear your name
taking so much blame

Your lies reach the cycle, round and round insane
But know your entitled to drown the voice of pain

Don't you think of leaving me now
I need you by my side
Your fading in and out of my life

(bridge)

Don't you think of leaving me now
I need you by my side
Your fading in and out of my life
Never to decide
Cause I'm the one
Who gave you up
and your the one who died
Your fading in and out of my life
