Tell me that you know another way to get it done
It's not me, or how I would be
But it's a different situation, a different situation
You lay awake in the night just staring at the ceiling above
Pulling pieces of it out is such a waste of time
You keep on fighting to remember that nothing is lost in the end
Then you burn, burn, burn your life down

Get me to the door
Out of bed
On the track
I'm not sure
Starting over

It's a different situation, a different situation
You wake up in the night and refuse to be afraid of the now
Unfolding pieces of it faster, don't you waste your time
You've been planning to remember this so nothing will be lost in the end
Then you burn, burn, burn your life down
Then you burn, burn, burn your life down

I drive around the block and I'm not looking to my right
I feel the glass against my cheek and I can't see you in the light
I break my heart around it, break my heart around it
I drive around the block and I'm not looking to my right
I feel the glass against my cheek and I can't see you in the light
I break my heart around this, break my heart around this pole
