I'd like to say I make good use of my time while you've been away
And it's true
I've been at my piano everyday thinking of you

They talk around
I hear them whisper
It's the funniest thing really
They think you're gone forever
I know the truth
It's just getting hard to believe it

And they all tell me it's over
Even the stars are aligned
And I

I follow the sign so clearly and still I fall in
The quicksand's pulling me down
I follow the sign so clearly and still they catch me
The quicksand's pulling me down

I'm not the same
I can't sleep nights and now I'm calling your name when I do
And yet without you they say I get on better
Better
Better

When they all tell me it's over
I'll damn the Gods until the stars are aligned
And I

I follow the sign so clearly and still I fall in
The quicksand's pulling me down
I follow the sign so clearly and still they catch me
The quicksand's pulling me down

Look at my life and look at my face
Can't you see my heart bleeding down my sleeve

You're holding my hand and holding my heart
But I just wanna feel your breath inside me so I can breathe

Somewhere in the distance I catch a spark
A grace
A hope
Something that makes me feel like I'm alive

It's never too soon
It's never too late so I start screaming out
I see your face
I see your hand reaching down and I yell to you
And I say

I follow the sign so clearly and still I fall in
The quicksand's pulling me down
I follow the sign so clearly and still they caught me
The quicksand's pulling me down

I follow the sign so clearly and still I fall in
The quicksand's pulling me down
I know you can feel me rising
And I'm on fire but they keep on pulling me out
Out

Look at my life and look at my face
And look where I've come to get to this place with you

Sitting there at your feet and rest in your arms
And listen to your heartbeat
Ah
Ah

Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh
Oh Oh
Oh Oh

Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh
Oh Oh
Oh Oh
