Baby
I used to watch your flowers grow
Now it's raining and all your petals turns to stone
I've been praying
I turn around and see my rose
But you faded
You left me now it's time to go

You're like a diamond and I'm like glass
Like oil and water we always clash
Sometimes my confessions are hard for me
I'll tell you now I'm setting you free

[Chorus]
That's why I'm long gone, long gone
You need to let me fly alone [Repeat: x3]
That's why I'm long gone, long gone
It may be to late our time is done

Baby
I think you've got your timing wrong
Hating
Exploring this while we're riding on
And it's crazy to think that I could be reborn
If you saved me
Now it's to late and you'll never know

You're like a diamond and I'm like glass
Like oil and water we always clash
Sometimes my confessions are hard for me
I'll tell you now I'm setting you free

[Chorus]

With broken wings (with broken wings)
I can't fly (I can't fly)
I'm gonna need you to save me, angel of mine
With broken wings (with broken wings)
I can't fly (I can't fly)
I'm gonna need you to save me, angel of mine

[Chorus]

You're like a diamond and I'm like glass
Like oil and water we always clash
Sometimes my confessions are hard for me
I'll tell you now I'm setting you free
