Fighting to keep the past behind
Fighting to keep the ground underneath my feet
While all around the world dissolves to ashes
All around me

While you're running from shadows in your head
While you're holding tight to everything he said
But he left you here for dead
That's all he wrote. That's all he ever said

Missed chances
Dead trees and fallen branches
Take my hand and don't look back
Forget your fears and just let go
Let go.

Subtle glances
Dead trees and fallen branches
Why'd you have to wait for years
I wish that you had let me know
Let me know

Before the earth stopped spinning and the world turned to ashes
