 Become A Better Singer In Only 30 Days, With Easy Video Lessons!

I've waited, and given the chance again,
I'd do it all the same, but either way
I'm always outplayed, up on your down days,
I left it the right way, to start again

Now watch me rise up and leave,
All the ashes you made out of me,
When you said that we were wrong, life goes on,
Just look how long I've agreed
Just look how long I've agreed

Out of place, like a gem on a coalface
Lost on the right way, it's all the same
'Cause I've had my hopes raised, riding the wrong waves
Scared when you feel safe to start again

Now watch me rise up and leave,
All the ashes you made out of me,
When you said that we were wrong, life goes on, just look how wrong I could be
Now watch me rise up and leave,
All the ashes you made out of me
When you said that we were wrong, life goes on, you blew me away
Away
Away
Away

Now watch me rise up and leave,
All the ashes you made out of me,
When you said that we were wrong, life goes on, just look how wrong I could be
Now watch me rise up and leave,
All the ashes you made out of me
When you said that we were wrong, life goes on, you blew me away
Away
Away
Away

I sink like a stone, I lost my control
I sink like a stone, I lost my control
I sink like a stone, I lost my control
