holding on to what we've been
is like keeping a flower that died
and all my tears are water I'm wasting
trying to bring it back to life

Sometimes I like to come up here
where the sirenes fade
and where's less smoke in the air
Under me the ruins and the ash
glowing in the red light of these last days
I can't see any living beings
only the broken hope of a world we lost
So I turn my head
watching the stars instead
watching the universe in this lonely night
let there be life
let there be life
let there be life

I don't beg you to stay when you choose to go
But you should remember
who fought the waves that tried
to wash away your colours back then
It wasn't those perfect shiny girls
you hang out with now
It wasn't him
you spend the nights texting with now
It was me, and I almost drowned myself keeping you above water
And now you learned how to swim,
and you don't need me anymore
I'm just a part of the past you want to forget
So go ahead, I'll be okay,
Done with hiding
under this sparkling blue surface
Done with holding my breath
You got to make it through the next storm on your own
Because I won't spend my life in freezing water waiting for you to need me.

And no one ever tries
to look behind the light
'cause beauty shines so bright
makes everybody blind
they don't care what's inside
the chaos in her mind
a world that's self-designed
where everyday's a fight
Can't reach across that line
can't keep away the night
still she will be alright
one time

And maybe I should just accept
we had our try, I don’t regret
Things start and end and life goes on
You came, you stayed and now you’re gone
Just wish I had a few days more
finding out if you’re who I’m made for
But I see it’s better this way around
cause you shouldn’t force love where it won’t be found

You think we matter
and you think we’ve gone far?
I will teach you better
how much matters a star?

Not a lot, insignificant
It's just one tiny light
but we look the same
in someone else's sky

You were so broken
that I destroyed myself
trying to fix you.

Now I'm the one falling apart
while you found someone else to hold you.
