To be a light in your life,
To brighten up, is that enough?
Seemed so fine, for your time,
Is eating up, you're comatose,
And you've always doubted, you can't live without it,
Boy, you're not alone, you're not alone,
She's silent shouting, and you're the coward,
Boy, it's not home, this isn't home,

I don't want your heart, if it comes with a price like this,
Girl, I can see you're tired, your eyes pulled down by lead,
Loneliness was not your fault, but I've thought of someone else instead,
Not sure if it was love, but it was hardly like the first time we kissed,

Out in the cold, breathing in smoke,
All for a moment, of lost intention,
Stuck in the fold, smothered in mold,
Do what you want cos there's no feeling,

But you'll never shout it, there's no use in doubting,
The feeling's gone, the feeling's gone,
Were we right to start it, now that we are parting,
I don't wanna know, we already know.
