Stood with my back to the wind and there's tears on your cheek.
A shadow of who I could've been.
Bittersweet is the air that floats over me, like ash in the warm breeze, and I've never felt so free.
So why cant I escape this and cast out yesterday?
No way back, there's no way back.
Please just let me be.
I'm scared of who I am now and I don't want to be alone.
The truth you made me swallow left me with cuts in my throat.
I'll take the words you said to me and set them ablaze, for the good that they have done.
The more I've lived the more I've let go.
So I'll live each day like I'm alive.
Remember in time, what we shared when we were blind.
That's the only place left for me.
Bittersweet is the air that floats over me, like ash in the warm breeze.
No way back, there's no way back. Please just let me be.
And I bet the longer I live, the emptier that I'll become.
Time won't stop when I close my eyes - no matter how hard I try,
To block out the silence at the back of my mind.
Light begins to fade and my shadows follow me again.
(Shadows follow me again. There's no place I'd rather be.)
(There's no place I'd rather be.)
