Stay — just another night I want to hold you tight I want to just pretend Love, once we were just friends Now we're at the end Now it's just a game of last mistakes Cause I want a broken heart again I just want to feel the knife dig in I want to see my world collapse into the sea And feel the weight fall from me Once, all we had was us And it was enough But somehow we lost touch Run — far as I can go Leaving all I know But knowing you will always be a part of me Cause I want a broken heart again I just want to feel the knife dig in And I want to see my world collapse into the sea And feel the weight fall from me So when you see me running You'll know the reason why And if you see me crying Just know I'm on your side I know your heart is breaking But get up off the floor This ain't a love worth saving This isn't love anymore Cause I want a broken heart again I just want to feel the knife dig in And I want to see my world collapse into the sea And feel the weight fall from me So when you see me running You'll know the reason why And if you see me crying Just know I'm on your side I know your heart is breaking But get up off the floor This ain't a love worth saving This isn't love anymore

You are the beauty and the fire And dear, I have but one desire — To see your face light up with light To hear your heart beat on through the darkest night But all we have is just a little time All we have is just a little time All we have is just a little time But I can see your light is fading And now it's place a fear is taking Of all the loves and lives you've lost Of all the countless tears and the tolls they've cost And so you hang your hopes till your heart has stopped

Ain't nobody gonna turn me off From your touch Ain't nobody gonna break me up From this love I'm dreaming of us But it's not enough Cause I miss you so much I'm breathing for two Can you try to? Cause I need you to wake up Ain't nobody gonna steal my eyes From your gaze I'll be living in your last twilight All my days I'm dreaming of us But it's not enough Cause I miss you so much I'm breathing for two Can you try too? Cause I need you to wake up Cause you were a fool to be brave When the world's so cruel to the kindest face But I'm lost, and I'm amazed I could let you take this love to your grave I'm dreaming of us But it's not enough Cause I miss you so much I'm breathing for two Can you try to? Cause I need you to wake up…

What is wrong With these wide-eyed dreams Of the simple things Of all the ways that You and I We would fight so long Until our words were gone And we were enough Cause dear I am the prodigal And now our fate's entwined This love is pathological But darling I don't mind Cause you don't have to be alone And you don't have to be the one who's so strong And I don't have to run away All you need to do is tell me to stay Lost again Where did you go, my friend? Why do you long for the end? Why won't you take my hand? Cause you don't have to be alone And you don't have to be the one who's so strong And I don't have to run away All you need to do is tell me to stay And we don't have to wait For the end to come Before we regain our faith Before we learn how to love Cause you don't have to be alone And you don't have to be the one who's so strong And I don't have to run away All you need to do is tell me to stay Tell me to stay…
