The lights came on fast 
Lost in motor crash 
Gone in a flash unreal 
But you knew all along 
You laugh the light 
I sing the songs 
To watch you numb 

I saw you there 
You were on your way 
You held the rain 
And for the first time 
Heaven seemed insane 
Cause heaven is to blame 
For taking you away 

Do you know the way that I can? 
Do you know the way that I can't lose? 
Do you know the things that I can? 
Do you know the things that I can do? 

Where is your heart? where is your heart gone to? 
Tear me apart 
Tear me apart from you 
You laugh the light I cry the wound 
In gray afternoons 

I saw you there 
You were on your way 
You held the rain 
And for the first time 
Heaven seemed insane 
Cause heaven is to blame 
For taking you away 

The lights came to pass 
Dead opera motor crash 
Gone in a flash unreal 
In nitrous overcast 

Do you know the way that I can? 
Do you know the way that I can't choose? 
Do you know the things that I can? 
Do you know the things that I can't lose? 

Tear me apart 
Tear me apart from you 
Where is your heart? 
Where has your heart run to?
