Promise I'll be better when You don't walk in my shadow I can lend Many different colours from my friend But I won't use any of them Promise I will see it in another way As a snake leaves his skin, I will lose my chains In a chamber of dolls I will be ok Being just a losing number in a lottery Nana nana na na nana na Nana nana na na nana na Nana nana na na nana na Are they gold and am I silver? Promise I will feel the wind on my face (Oe-oe-oeh) I need a touch of spark on a rainy day (Oe-oe-oeh) Everything around me lives while I'm Hurting when I am breathing Hurting when I am breathing Nana nana na na nana na Nana nana na na nana na Nana nana na na nana na Are they gold and am I silver? Are they gold and am I silver? (Oe-oe-oe-oe-aah)

In the deepest corners of my mind you lit a light to fix the fights between bad and what is right the bad spirits will leave tonight Don't pull the rope I'm standing on, keep me from falling, don't leave me alone The bruises will heal but I’m afraid the scars in my heart will stay Can't you see there's a rope around my heart? Don't pull it or I will fall apart Can't you see I've warned you from the start but you wouldn't believe my words so I wished you could read my thoughts In the darkest places you can find me dreaming, in the embrace of the silence staring at things you can't see Still you'll be my only friend Sometimes I think I make it up but it seems so real that I can't stop I hope the pieces will fall back in place, in this endless puzzle I can't erase And after all the things we've been through, we still have stayed the same And on the outside we've been growing but on the inside we've always stayed the same We’ve always stayed the same Can't you see there's a rope around my heart? Don't pull it or I will fall apart Can't you see I've warned you from the start but you wouldn't believe my words so I wished you could read my thoughts

I'm looking for A bandage on my skin, That covers wounds And stops the bleeding from within I'm looking for A spell that brings alive, The part of me that once died One by one, We were frozen on the inside, A heart of gold but cold as ice One by one One by one You’re not a murderer, Because you want to kill The pain in your chest, But still You're looking for Protection from the rain, But the demons in your head are taking your dreams away One by one, We were frozen on the inside, A heart of gold but cold as ice One by one One by one We were frozen, Hands held high, but head a little lower, One by one, We grew colder On the inside, we had to find a way to feel alive Alive No matter how close to the heat, It's still cold air that we breathe No matter how close to the fire, The ice won't melt, won’t melt faster One by one, One by one We had to find a way to feel alive Alive

We're all born crying And when we die, we're so alive Misunderstood, our whole lives The cuts covered up, the light dying with time You just wanna be, just wanna be loved for You just wanna be, just wanna be loved for You just wanna be, just wanna be loved for Who you are Who you are “Cause I am, losing. I am, losing. I am. I am. Losing faith” “Cause I am, losing. I am, losing. I am. I am. Losing faith” Don't replay the scenes in your head Darling please, don't be so sad You're not there, not in that hospital bed Where everyone left, with not a trace of regret You just wanna be, just wanna be loved for You just wanna be, just wanna be loved for You just wanna be, just wanna be loved for Who you are Who you are “Cause I am, losing. I am, losing. I am. I am. Losing faith” “Cause I am, losing. I am, losing. I am. I am. Losing faith” Keep the ghosts outside my view, Please make them stop Hold me close, All I want to feel is love. Love “Cause I am, losing. I am, losing. I am. I am. Losing faith” “Cause I am, losing. I am, losing. I am. I am. Losing faith”

Oh my god I can’t bear this weight anymore This invisible bag, full of struggles and fears Oh my god It’s getting heavier every day With eyes addicted to crying every worry Away, into the night You said ‘Well I’ll Push you towards the light, I know the darkness feels right Push you towards the light, Tonight dying sparks reignite Don’t let the candle burn out.” Oh my god I am fooling everyone My eyes shine bright but only for so long Oh my god I can’t be dead or am I? Something ‘s screaming in my head all the time I won’t let you Push me towards the light, I know the darkness feels right Push me towards the light, Tonight dying sparks reignite Don’t let the candle burn out Take this heart of mine, And make it beat in time Let me explode, the darkness will be my light Don’t let the candle burn out Can you fix my heart now? Can you make it beat just in time? Can you fix my head now? Unravel the knots I made Can you fix my heart now? Can you make it beat just in time? Can you fix my head now? Unravel the knots I made through life

You gave my heart a purpose for its beating You gave my life a real meaning You gave my lungs the strength to breathe, And let the air out I've said it once, I've said it twice, I'll say it until my soul collides, With the beat of the drums I'll sing it once, I'll sing it loud, I'll sing it until the day I die, And my lungs give in You gave my heart a purpose for its beating You gave my life a real meaning You gave my lungs the strength to breathe, And let the air out I've come from far, but still so close I've gone from a shadow to a ghost, But now I'm here again I've seen the worst, I've seen the best, In every person I have met But this is for you, you're the best friend I could have got But this is for you, you're the best friend I could have got You helped me through the worst, Through the best, through the lies and I guess, That's all I could wish from a person I have met You gave my heart a purpose for its beating You gave my life a real meaning You gave my lungs the strength to breathe, and let the air out

I knew a girl, She lived in a cocoon Hoping she’d turn into a butterfly soon I knew a girl, She sang until her throat hurt It was her escape from living in a prison She said, she said: “I wonder, should I end this life? Or stay (or stay)? Sometimes I wish I could Dream the days away.” No, don't cry Everyone in the world smiles all the time, Doesn't mean they aren't dying inside No, don't cry Everyone in the world hides all the time, It's easier to cope with everyday life Although you're hurt, although you're lost, Broken and torn apart, Just smile. just smile I knew a girl, She bottled everything up Until the glass burst and she cut herself on the Sharp sides I knew a girl, She said she forgot how to smile Still every word of hate, she'd return with Love, love. She wonders if she caused all the Trouble and hate (and hate) Sometimes she wishes she could just No, don't cry Everyone in the world smiles all the time, Doesn't mean they aren't dying inside No, don't cry Everyone in the world hides all the time, It's easier to cope with everyday life Although you're hurt, although you're lost, Broken and torn apart, Just smile. just smile I knew a girl, She saw everything in black and white Consequence of the people, That made her hate herself I knew a girl, she asked for some color in her life But for every tear wiped away, Another streamed down her face I knew a girl, She found strength Through time, through time She said it's broken people that make each other whole again No, don't cry Everyone in the world smiles all the time, Doesn't mean they aren't dying inside No, don't cry Everyone in the world hides all the time, It's easier to cope with everyday life Although you're hurt, although you're lost, Broken and torn apart, Just smile. just smile I know a girl, She’s recovering now. Sometimes it gets cloudy, But she knows there'll be sun in the end

I'm the slowly weeping sky A river of tears Salt forming in an eye Rolling down a cheek An accident caused A shadow on the hills The struggle of life The search for better times Is this life for you ? I don't know I'm just scaled off paint I'm just a snowflake that melts In a Winter Wonderland Is this life for me? I don't know I'm just space filling the crowd I'm just the leaves on a tree Falling endlessly You're the hope in hopeless Illusions left from a dream The heartbreaking silence The treasure that's never seen You're the razor on my skin Carving words of hate It tortures my delicate limbs It makes the illness win Is this life for you? I don't know I'm just scaled off paint I'm just a snowflake that melts In a Winter Wonderland Is this life for me? I don't know I'm just space filling the crowd I'm just the leaves on a tree Falling endlessly Oe-oe-oe-oe-oeh Oe-oe-oe-oe-oeh Oe-oe-oe-oe-oeh Oe-oe-oe-oe-oeh Oe-oe-oe-oe-oeh Oe-oe-oe-oe-oeh Oe-oe-oe-oe-oeh Oe-oe-oe-oe-oeh

Soon I'll fall down like a tear in the rain I will blend in unnoticed And soon I hope I'll hold a rose But soon I know I'll fight its thorns And I said ‘soon’ Soon Soon it might snow I'll melt like before But you're not ice, Just drizzle before the snow And soon I hope I'll hold a rose But soon I know I'll fight its thorns And I said ‘soon’ Soon My lungs are clouds, the oxygen just escapes I keep panicking 'cause I never know when they will cause rain All I know is that since the storm, I have never felt the same It was the day I realised my life is a huge twirling hurricane
