Anything we should know about your change?
Stood in the rain and watched you go
I feel a lump in my throat
And this is far from joy

I never seemed to learn,
That high makes things harder
That high I get from you

I've figured out that joy is not in your arms
I know I'll always ache with an empty heart
I think it's time to run 'cos I'm seeing stars
I'm seeing stars, watch me fall apart

I think of dying all the time
