I can't sleep on through the night,
I don't know if we'll be alright.

I forget all that I know.
I think you're here, but I'm on my own.

Didn't I lose my way,
Holding the lights.

Hoping you'll come while they burn through the night.

Didn't you see the fire,
All that we lost.

Didn't you hear me cry,
Hands in the dust.

I drew a map, to bring you to me.
You shut your eyes and now you can't see.

I walked away, but you didn't call.
What if you don't love me anymore?

Didn't I lose my way,
Holding the lights.

Hoping you'll come while they burn through the night.

Didn't you see the fire,
All that we lost.

Didn't you hear me cry,
Hands in the dust.

I know that I tried everything.
But we hurled the dust, ash on the wind.

I gave you up so you wouldn't say,
I'm not enough to get you to change.

Didn't I lose my way,
Holding the lights.

Hoping you'll come while they burn through the night.

Didn't you see the fire,
All that we lost.

Didn't you hear me cry,
Hands in the dust.

Watching the walls cave in
And you're standing still.

And everyone's turning in,
Hands on the wheel.

You had my what?
You had, my heart.

And I don't wanna love you. oh ohh
... if you can't.
